Due to an album leak, MGMT's sophomore release 'Congratulations' have been getting early reviews both good and bad. Is it a sophomore slump or not? All I can say, MGMT took a huge leap from their last album, and I can definitely respect that. The problem with most of these reviews are that people need something to compare it to. Their first album was amazing, and most people expected them to do something similar or at least stay on the path, and so when they went off the path (way off), some felt cheated. But remember MGMT is not Justin Bieber or whatever his name is, they are musicians and artists. I remember what the critics said after Radiohead released 'OK Computer' after 'The Bends'. Just say it wasn't pretty at least at first. Anyway check the video for Flash Delirium.
