HASH(0x9cf00738) out of 5 stars The Oracular Spectacular Demo Tape April 29 2013
By Kirk A. Gauthier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
MGMT's debut release isn't a demo tape per se, but it has a much rougher edge to it than their rather polished debut album, 'Oracular Spectacular'. On 'Time to Pretend', we get to hear early versions of the band's hits "Time to Pretend" and "Kids," both of which were re-recorded for their debut album, as well a four other songs. Personally, I prefer the later version of "Time to Pretend," but the version of "Kids" found on this release rivals the re-recorded version found on 'Oracular Spectacular'.

Though a mere six songs in length, this EP does a rather good job of sculpting the broad sound of Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, otherwise known as MGMT. And it was these six songs that got them a phone call from Columbia Records offering them a record deal. If you're looking to get into the band's music, this is a good place to start; while not as polished as their Columbia releases, you can easily hear their broad, expansive brand of psychedelic pop.

It's so weird to hear old favorites like this, before they were finalized on the album. This version of Time to Pretend is slower and a lot more mellow but I think beautiful in it's own way, I just love it.

Kind of hedonistic , yet hippy-dippy at the same time . Energetic with a very complex layering of beats and sounds. I plan on getting more MGMT albums.

It's distinct enough to merrit a purchase. They don't do the terrible things to AVW's voice that they do (to good effect) in all the later albums.

HASH(0x9d207270) out of 5 stars What a fantastic surprise! March 26 2012
By Priya86 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My Florence + the Machine Pandora station would cycle through a song from this EP once or twice a day when I listen at work. I have to say I'm fairly addicted to it now. It all started with Kids. I found Kids instantly recognizable from movies and television shows but not so recognizable that I knew right off what it was. Then the addiction grew with Love Always Remains. The songs are a mix of pop, electronica and dance. It's kind of an awesome mix that makes for perfect summertime listening. My husband always says you can tell what season it is by what I'm listening to and MGMT is shaping up to be my summer listening for years to come. I highly recommend this EP for anyone looking to get a taste of MGMT or just looking for something a little bit different.
