CRITIC REVIEWS

91
A.V. Club
It offers one sonic reward after another, and the band remains as inviting as ever.

AllMusic

From the opening moments of the sublime “It’s Working” all the way to the titular closer, Congratulations is an incredible follow-up from a band that is still maturing into some unknown entity.

Billboard

The new nine-song album blends psychedelia with elements of post-punk, surf rock and even folk.

MGMT may be dazed, but they’re not tweaked out yet.

American Songwriter

MGMT plots a strange course for their listeners with Congratulations, but the material here often exceeds that of the band’s initial full-length.

Siberian Breaks is one of the finest songs this decade has to offer

This was actually tight...MGMT really changed their direction and came through with a really focused effort...

Seems like the commercially successful songs, e.g. "Kids", aren't the only thing which defines them as artists...

Aight, so this doesn't have the absolute best MGMT songs, but imo they're all still great. I have this as the best MGMT project because it's their most consistent body of work

Edit: I realized how much I enjoy OS and now this is my second favorite MGMT project.
