MGMT find kindred spirits in Muse and Mew by dressing their melodies in the fanciful trappings of 1970s British prog, but unlike their contemporaries the duo also weaves in lessons from disco, new-wave synth-pop, and early 90s Britpop.

Best of 2007
One of my favorite albums of all time.
The kind of recordings that will stay here long after we're gone.
This album is carried by Time To Pretend, Electric Feel and Kids

But honestly those songs are SO FUCKING AMAZING so do you really need any more than that!?
Literally "Nostalgia The Album"

Great tracks, great hooks, great melodies, and everything in-between. This band has a great debut album that really blew up in the late 2000s. These songs are so memorable, and instantly recognizable that it's hard to ignore. This album slaps

im very nostalgic for this album great chorus's interesting beat selections a good variety in the track list and probably 3 of the most iconic songs of the 2000s being time to pretend, kids and electric feel those are my compliments for the debut album from mgmt the only track i dont like is the youth it does not fit into this album in my opinion anyways great debut album from mgmt. too many memories of these songs
This album started off really strong but tailed off near the end. There were a few standout songs, like Kids, Time to Pretend and Electric Feel, but the ending of the album was kinda boring and unimagined. Still, it was a good album.
