Eh ....

Loved the music, did not care for the hook/melody. I didn't dislike it per se, but single of the year? Didn't live up to the yesterday's hype.

popmatters gave Small Craft on a Milk Sea a 9/10... but it didn't crack their top 70.

As they stated about Have One On Me, it's a consensus vote, while the reviews are one person's opinion.

Not a single, for what it's worth.

Oh, I misremembered not only that it was Pitchfork's top TRACKS of 2010, not singles, but also that it was in the top 10. D'oh.

In any case. The sentiment still stands. I got all excited when the music started, and then I slowly deflated as the singing started. Alas.

Has there been a more divisive album this year than Congratulations? I have seen it on a few different best-of and most disappointing lists.

I like it. It's in my top 5 of the year so far. I kind of feel like MGMT would be better if there weren't any vocals. The instrumentation is the best part of what they do. I think they're at their best on their more ethereal, psychedelic, fantasy-sounding tracks, and sometimes I feel like the guy is singing over the music rather than with it.

But yeah, I like Congratulations.

I love the hell out of that album cover. I merely enjoy the album.

It seems that way, doesn't it?

I would say Contra as well but apparently I'm the only one who hates it, if these lists are any indication.

Congratulations is terrible. Brian Eno in particular is horrendous. All I wanted was three singles to match Time to Pretend, Kids and Electric Feel.
