"Oracular Spectacular is an arresting introduction to the illogical world of MGMT, and is the kind of album that’s a guilty pleasure without the guilt." --HotPress.com

Often focused on quirkiness at the expense of actual songcraft. But while this album's experiments don't always work, they're certainly never boring.

It is a bit soul, a bit 80’s and a bit psychedelic all blended together. This album is really great and I enjoy listening to it over and over again. Staff picks 2009
