Outside of their 3 hits from Oracular Spectacular, MGMT is a critically and commercially underrated band. This album is a stellar addition to their catalogue and is one of the most fun albums of the year (yes, fun music can be good). I can't wait to see what these two guys do next

Best MGMT record so far. The singles are undoubtedly the high points, but the unique shameless and quirky attitude of the band make this a very fun album to listen to from start to finish.

Even though some of the songs on the album don't hit as hard as others, I gotta say the amazing songs make up for it and make this my favorite album of the year.

It sounds different and new, and specially a very fun album. They sing about some dumd 'Millenials' topics, but still they manage to sound cool and fresh. She works out too much and When You Die are my top tracks.

Awesome record.

The production on this one is a loving throwback to the 1980s, but never sounds dated at any point. These songs are clever, intricate, varied, and often beautiful, but Little Dark Age has a good sense of humor and never takes itself too seriously.

...Above all else it's simply a fun listen. It sounds like two guys who live in their own little kooky world together trying to portray it the best they can in 45 minutes. And the glimpse that we get is a really addictive album.

This may very well be my favorite MGMT record to date and is definitely one of my favorites of 2018 thus far.

9/10.

Favorites: When You Die, Me and Michael, Hand It Over

Very nice comeback after their somewhat flat 2013 album. It's both smooth and relaxing in places while having the occasional erratic, experimental track. Reminds me of a modern Talking Heads, which is what I always hoped MGMT would become.
Warrants further listening, my rating may go up.

First listen, this is so nice and chill but also has some great more pessimistic lyrics juxtaposed by the music. Just need to try listening stoned and the rating might go up even more ahah. Favourite songs: She Works Out Too Much, When You Die & James.

Excellent production (That bass on the title track is everything) When You Die might be my favorite song to come out this decade. Definitely the most consistent record that they've put out. Congratulations is still my current favorite from them, but 8 months in and this is still my AOTY.

Not their best but a fun album.
Very 80s sounding with all the reverbs and overprocessing (even though it sounds good thanks to Fridmann).
