This 2008 release contains ten tracks, several tracks of which are lifted from the 2005 Time to Pretend EP.

Tune of the week: 2011 (52 music items)

"Week 16:11.04.11 - 17.04.11 Oracular Spectacular has three sure-fire hit songs that pretty much guaranteed this band a career, no matter how dire the follow up album. Yet after a few years, none of those three songs really do it for me anymore and it's this song that I love the most by these guys. It's just impossible for me to get bored of it."

Spectacular pop music.

“Oracular Spectacular has to be regarded of one of the greatest albums of 2008. This is the first full length studio offering from Brooklyn-based indie band MGMT. This 2008 release contains ten tracks, several tracks of which are lifted from the 2005 Time to Pretend EP. The album versions of these tracks were modernised and reproduced to achieve a more energetic and flowing sound - much to the chagrin of some of their fan base.

MGMT (Formerly The Management) burst onto the scene almost purely because of the radio-friendly nature of some of the songs on the album. Tracks like Time to Pretend, Kids and Electric Feel were not only international radio successes, but also ensured that MGMT became the most listened to artist of 2008 on the online music documenting site Last.fm.
