1. I disagree with you on MGMT’s first album (I loved it), but yeah, Congratulations sucks. HARD. It’s an unwieldy mixture that sounds, at different times, like poorly done versions of the B-52’s, Syd Barret era Pink Floyd, Roxy Music, and T-Rex. I give them credit for doing something different, but only so much, since they didn’t do that something different well at all.

  2. I have to say that “Congratulations” is un-listenable (word? like “un-digestible,” but for sounds), but “Oracular Spectacular” never fails to send me into a state of mild euphoria.

    I am severely depressed to be deprived of the same level of deliciousness.
