MGMT – Oracular Spectacular (Vinyl) Description:

MGMT – Oracular Rolling Stone (p.82) – 3.5 stars out of 5 — There are hints of Joy Division and Sixties nostalgia both acid-tinged and bluesy but ORACULAR SPECTACULARs playfulness and remarkable density are best displayed on Electric Feel… Rolling Stone (p.92) – Ranked #31 in Rolling Stones 50 Best Albums Of 2008 — Its acid rock for realists. Spin (p.51) – Ranked #10 in Spins 40 Best Albums Of 2008 — [A] state-of-the-art party album. Uncut (p.98) – 4 stars out of 5 — MGMT offer a series of rock pastiches so joyously over-egged that they be something new and celebratory. A sugary feast for the senses. Alternative Press (p.115) – 4.5 stars out of 5 — ORACULAR is thick with countless layers of electronics live instrumentation and vocal harmonies….Its brilliant. Q (Magazine) (p.138) – 4 stars out of 5 — [A] collection of ambitiously stitched-together genres all massaged into punchy cohesion by Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann. Its a bold debut. Mojo (Publisher) (p.66) – Ranked #36 in Mojos The 50 Best Albums Of 2008 — [With] wild reverbs huge keyboards and slippery lyrics… Harp (magazine) (p.104) – Filled with electro-processed recorders mad Mellotrons walls of fuzz and finely fingered acoustic guitars to go with MGMTs mystic mountain melodies… The Word (magazine) (p.106) – [MGMT] have clearly soaked up a lot of the sort of stuff that bands of their ilk exist for…but rather charmingly in these dread-heavy times they dress it all up in expansively positive pop songs that are generally high as kites. Clash (Magazine) (p.67) – Ranked #13 in Clashs The 40 Best Albums of 2008 — [I]ts raw talent that has kept MGMT afloat through 2008. Long may it do so. Disc 1 1. Time to Pretend 2. Weekend Wars 3.
