Oracular Spectacular
Out Of Print 2008 Vinyl. Produced By Dave Fridmann, Producer Of Recent Flaming Lips Records, Which, After Listening, Explains A Whole Lot. "MGMT Find Kindred Spirits In Muse And Mew By Dressing Their Melodies In The Fanciful Trappings Of 1970s British Prog, But Unlike Their Contemporaries The Duo Also Weaves In Lessons From Disco, New-Wave Synth-Pop, And Early 90s Britpop. The Understanding That Youthful Innocence Is A Potent Force-A Theme First Established In "Time To Pretend"-Continues Throughout The Record. Instead Of The "Knights Of Cydonia", Though, MGMT Fights "Weekend Wars", Ostensibly An Ode To The Fictionalized Childhood Battles That Treat Backyards As Independent Colonies In Need Of Conquering. The Gentle, Chiming Melody And Effete Vocals Of "The Youth" Recall Sparks Or Queen At Their Most Restrained Moments, And "Kids" Comes Across As An Inspirational Dance Anthem For Playgrounders." - Pitchfork
