Ditching the synth-pop in favour of a proggy, psychedelic pop sound, MGMT recruited former Spacemen 3 member Peter Kember aka Sonic Boom to create their expansive second record. Influenced by everything from Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, The Flaming Lips' widescreen pop, Brian Eno's art rock, and glam rock, 'Congratulations' surprised many who were looking for another 'Kids' or 'Time To Pretend'.

Just a quick reply to Brian's review. Well I haven't heard the album yet, but I am chuffed to see Anthony Ausgang's artwork being given mainstream exposure. Although funnily enough I actually bought MGMT's last album on the strength of its exotically flavoured sleeve! Ausgang has done fab sleeves for the Warlocks, the Boredoms and many of Sonic Boom's projects, amongst others. He's done paintings for members of Queens of the Stone Age. And he loves cats. Respect!Maria
