I just listened to most of the album and after a few songs I was thinking "Okay, this is better than I originally thought it was."

Then a few songs later I thought, "No, it's really not. I was trying to force myself to like it."

The album is already proof enough. I might like it more if there were someone else singing.

When I found my late-breaking love for Kids and Time to Pretend, I went back to the album again and was surprised and disappointed that there was nothing else on the album that was even remotely good.

I liked The Reeling, haven't heard anything else yet, although its not my genre, they're Boston boys so I figured I'd give them a chance, likely just the next indie fad though.

I agree that, at times, the vocals can get annoying, but the music is so damn catchy that I'm willing to deal with it. And I think he sounds much better here than on the EP, so that's a good sign.

I would put Electric Feel up there, too.

I was really high on MGMT when they only had the Time to Pretend EP knocking about. I still prefer that version of "Kids." Then the album came out and absolutely sucked, with two of the three good tracks already done better on the EP. Then "Kids" became a single and thus ubiquitous, all but ruining it for me.

Anyway, I'm going to go ahead and agree with this:

The album's best track and a clear standout of 2009 thus far.

I like Moth Wings a lot as well. There are probably a couple tracks from the album I like a little more than it though.


PS - MGMT are horrible live

Moth Wings is my least favourite song on this album. Not that it's bad, but the rest is really damn good.

Alright, I'm convinced. Time to check these blokes out.

Reading the Shitfork review, it's very similar in tone as their review of IGC (not groundbreaking, but sweetsounding), which has gotta bea good thing.

Ah yes, Things Of Stone and Wood, they might've run out of Melbourne cliches, but I still love them, listened to some of their songs yesterday actually. Timeless.
