I love their electronic hippy sound - almost glam rock for the noughties. Picked this album up through hearing their magnificent Oracular Spectacular. Flash Delirium is such a complicated construction - almost like a medley - but is brilliant

One of the more underrated albums, I think it's great and one of the better 2010's albums so far.. Please give a listen or two if you haven't!

A fantastic follow up to their debut, and definitely on par with it in my opinion. Two of my favourite albums.

Siberian breaks and Congratulations are obvious highlights as well as I Found a Whistle and It's Working.

A heavily underrated record that I fear is only appreciated by those who already have a tendency toward the 00s indie sound(specifically MGMT). Their first was break though but this record has a lot more bite. Its incredibly weird and quirky, but also amazing tracks. "Its Working" is a super cool opener, "I Found a Whistle" is absolutely sublime(damn near perfect imo), but the true take away is "Siberian Breaks". "Siberian Breaks" is a masterpiece, one of the best songs of the decade, and definitely the best MGMT track hands down. Give this album a real chance, you'll be blown away

An instant classic in my opinion. The higher points are really high, being Siberian Breaks the stand out moment in an album that is as much quirky as it is touching. It is indeed underrated, maybe because it followed up the indie-pop gem that Oracular Spactacular is. But as an isolated work of art, it is undoubtedly a classic.

From johnner
Admirable 2nd album that demonstrates there's more to the boys than Kids and Time to Pretend. Here MGMT's brand of psychotic psychedelia takes a more malevolently demented detour down the avenue 'avant-garde' and is all the better for it.

Wow this album is criminally underrated... Great album from start to finish, literally love every song on here (besides Lady Dada's nightmare). FANTASTIC album.
