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.

90
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

i can’t listen to this album anymore. It’s not that it’s not good or anything, in fact it’s fantastic, but it brings up bad memories. Along with the rest of MGMT’s discography, which is why I’m deleting all my scores for them

woah. that's how i can put this LP in one word. this was a refreshing shift from oracular spectacular, which was full of synth beats and repetitive hooks, the duo has a more classic feel, more guitars and drums while using their synthesizers as well. the lyrics and hooks were on point and had a great song-to-song flow.
fav tracks: it's working, flash delirium, bryan eno
least fav track: someone's missing
