Now fans haveI was blown away by 2010's Congratulations. It was an album packed full of catchy psych songs with thought provoking lyrics. Now fans have waited 3 years for the follow up. The album starts with one of the strongest songs of MGMT's career Alien Days. The song provides the same feelings of joy I received listening to Siberian Breaks (MGMT's 12 minute psych-masterpiece). The album continues walls of synth and delayed vocals with the occasional pop break (There's Plenty of Girls in the Sea, and Your Life is a Lie) The album overall is a big step in experimentation for MGMT. Where Congratulation had the straight forward Psychedelic pop of the 60's, MGMT trades the electric guitars in for acid soaked synths. The result is not disappointing and even a more intriguing listening experience. At this moment I've Listened to this albums 3 times. And Congratulations edges it by a bit but that may change with more listens. I'm glad to say MGMT did not disappoint.
