They're up there with U2 and Arcade Fire as my three favorite bands. Anyone else a fan?

I love a few of their songs, Kids, Electric Feel, and Time to Pretend. Never listened to anything else though.

Same place - any recommendations?

Errr....well...fun fact. Those are the only three remotely catchy songs MGMT ever wrote in their life. All their other music is extremely psychedelic tripfests best listened to on acid. But it's still pretty good.

I'd recommend Flash Delirium as well, and add It's Working, Brian Eno, and Weekend Wars.

I'm hoping their 3rd album coming in June has a few more like Kids.

I didn't really care for the second album too much, but Brian Eno is a pretty good tune. I am setting higher expectations for album #3

I'm of the unpopular opinion that Congratulations was so much better than their first album  :P

I think as a whole Congratulations is better, but Oracular Spectacular has their best singles by far.

One of my favorite newer bands.  Loved Congratulations.  Loved both albums.  Supposed to ba new album in May or June, I think.
