HASH(0xa518ecb4) 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.
HASH(0xa518ef00) out of 5 stars Great Original Version of "Kids" and "Time to Pretend", but that's really the only selling point for this album May 23 2016

I actually bought "Oracular Spectacular" before I bought this album, but when I heard the original version of these songs I re-fell in love with both "Time to Pretend" and "Kids" which are the main reason I bought this album. I equally enjoy both versions of the songs, so for $5 this was a great addition and change of pace. the other songs on the album are also alright, but definitely not the selling point. One gripe is that there are only 6 songs on this album which is kind of low compared to, say, an ELO album like "A New World Record" which has 15 (14) songs on it that are all pretty solid.

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.
