Siberian Breaks is insanely beautiful. One of the best songs I've heard so far.
I am going to listen to it in order.

But god damn.

I think I'm going to stand by my assessment that MGMT is a band that has three great tracks ("Time to Pretend", "Electric Feel", and "Kids"), and that's it.

The new album has zero direction and less hooks than Radiohead's "Amnesiac"...

It just "meanders"... And to say that they didn't want to write songs like "Electric Feel" or their other hits is a joke. I just don't think they could come up with them. As a result, the listener is stuck with tracks like "Brian Eno."

Pretty much sunk their ship with this tuneless, go-nowhere album. It's densely packed and monotonous.

I listened to this album today on NPR and I was not impressed by it all. Maybe I will listen to it again tomorrow.

Well thankfully it is streaming. I will listen to it again later today while at work. Hopefully my opinion will change.

It seems like the polar opposite of their last album. It is more cohesive, less catchy and doesn't have the songs that you want to listen to on repeat. Siberian Breaks might be their best song yet but I don't know what to make of the others.

Gave it another listen and it's worse the 2nd time around. And that takes care of that.

This is exactly it for me. I think all in all it's a way better album, but you don't get that impression immediately because it lacks anything near the singles that "Electric Feel" and "Kids" were. Other than those two, however, I feel like Oracular Spectacular is the single most overrated album of all time...of all time. This, though. It's hard to quite get a feel for, it's so damn laid back. This can be a bad thing, because it can come across as flat and lifeless (as it did the first time i attempted to listen to it), but if you're in the mood for it, it can actually be some great chill music.

All in all, I think it's no Joshua Tree of Va--you know where I'm going with that, but it's definitely a keeper in my book.

From all of the mixed reviews I'd read of this album, I was expecting it to be terrible. Probably because of those low expectations going into my first listen, I was very pleasantly surprised to enjoy this album.
