About this deal

The result is a diverse and powerful collection of 10 songs that directly mirrors the duo’s encompassing surrealist view of the everyday. The Youth" both warns of and champions the then-young adult Millennial generation with its myriad changes -- changes the older generations, true to form, viewed (often correctly) as inherently destructive.

After initially recoiling from this album, having commenced my MGMT mania with the expected trio of favorites ("Time to Pretend," "Electric Feel," "Kids"), I slowly became infatuated with and mesmerized by this quirky array of songs. Oracular Spectacular is easy to love, Congratulations has Siberian Breaks, which opens all doors at precisely the 6 minute point. I always trust my ears over "remastered from the analog tapes blah blah blah" For all we know, it was remastered from the tapes, cut to digital, and then cut to vinyl. It gave the world evergreen hits such as "Kids", "Electric Feel" and "Time to Pretend" which have inspired, and continue to inspire new generations of artists and music fans alike to this day - those three songs combined have been streamed over 2 billion times on audio streaming platforms since released.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. On his third solo outing as Panda Bear, Animal Collective's Noah Lennox balances blossoming melodic pop with wildly experimental sound techniques, hitting on a stunningly unique sound that's both overwhelming and inspirational.

So, it's disturbing when people give this album only one star, there's no redemption from a rating like that. The vinyl record itself is heavy, it's not labeled as 180 gram vinyl, but it's heavier than the other records in my collection. Nods to their likely heroes aside, MGMT crafted a brilliant and personal work of art with OS, deftly achieving multiple feats: chart-topping, smash hit bangers (we all know the ones) that deliver the dopamine but never sound stale, weird, beautiful, abstract artistic tracks, eye-watering satire ("Time to Pretend"), willfully "stupid" pop efforts that unintentionally sound 200% better than almost all pop tracks released today, a poetic rainbow assortment of memorable lyrics, and complex themes both timely and timeless. One of the most influential albums of the '00's - it went on to sell over 2 million copies worldwide and was certified Gold or Platinum in over 10 major territories, including double platinum in UK, Platinum in Australia, Gold in France and Platinum in the USA. The successor to 2008's Oracular Spectacular and 2010 s Congratulations, MGMT finds Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser continuing to push themselves to expand the boundaries of modern pop music.Unclog your ears and you'll see that if there is any justice at all these guys will be the Strokes/Franz Ferdinand of 2008 because they are better than either of them. Newly remastered from the original analog tapes, this 2LP edition of MGMT’s psychedelic rock masterpiece from 2010 is pressed on 180-gram vinyl and features the paradoxical “Flash Delirium.

This is that rare thing an album of potent musical quality that provides instantly catchy but durable pop music(I loved this album from the start and it's still getting better with every play). C'est certainement le plus abouti de MGMT, et le plus sincère, là où Congratulations (que j'adore) était peut-être trop lisse et régulier (malgré Siberian Breaks et Flash Delirium). And pyramid shaped pictures in the albums artwork only work for big selling bands who have sold out to the illuminati anyway. MGMT est un album de questionnement, de doute, et de voyages intérieurs (c'est peut-être pour ça que le groupe a repris la chanson "Introspection"). In fact, maybe in a few years we'll see another release of the album, but only with all the studio channels available so you could do your own mix of the record?

Gatefold double LPCurrents is the highly anticipated third full-length from the much loved Australian psychedelic rockers and the follow up to 2012's Lonerism. even if some of the sounds and vocals, like on "Electric Feel," take considerable cues from the likes of the Bee Gees and The Doors. It's very liberating - like that 6:00 minute point in Siberian Breaks (and the video at that point too - open your eyes : ).The second album of 2019 from the awesome FOALS, following from Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1 which was released in March. Always taking an unexpected creative turn at every new record, but always maintaining their cultural and commercial relevance over the subsequent 15 years, MGMT later released three further studio albums: " Congratulations " (2010), "MGMT" (2013) and "Little Dark Age" (2018). As other reviewers have stated, there are slew of discernible influences in their music, if you choose to go looking for them, but no particular artist or era stands out as a primary source.
