JDIZZY's 365 # 283: Time To Pretend

Time To Pretend - MGMT (2007)

Q. Is MGMT brilliant?

A. Yes. With The Flaming Lips, they have single handedly brought Psychedelic rock back to the mainstream after a long underground sleep.

Q. Is "Time To Pretend" their best song?

A. Maybe, but it is their most important because it was their first blast of narcissistic cynicism wrapped up in sunshiney melodies that they released to the world as their first single from the Insanely Listenable Oracular Spectacular.

Q. Are they worth further exploration?

A. Definitely. While challenging, their followup disc Congratulations is the closet we will ever get to a Syd Barrett-led Floyd ever again. It is a creeper that begs for headphones and repeated listens.

Q. Are they on drugs?

A. doubt about it........DON'T DO DRUGS!

This is way better than I thought it would be when I clicked on it!
