MGMT
(The Third MGMT Album)

Andrew VanWyngarden

Had Andrew and Ben not agreed (probably with a smirk) long ago that, should their ever-evolving musical collaboration called MGMT reach the crucial Third Record Threshold, they'd make that milestone eponymous, MGMT (the album) might well have been called something like Step Into The Club - ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great EP 26 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
Great EP with awesome cover artwork and some brilliant songs - nice toy hear some early versions of now well known songs and Love Always Remains is an excellent song. They should really have put the pre-ending bit of this version of kids on the album!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Oracular Spectacular Demo Tape 29 April 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.

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Old take on New Themes 19 Feb 2014

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting! 20 Oct 2013
By Dianna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

I've been jamming out this CD, so great, the six tracks are definitely worth the price. Mgmt are the best!
