Best Albums of 2008: #8: MGMT: Oracular Spectacular

8. MGMT: Oracular Spectacular

Make fun of me all you want, this album has a lot of really good, catchy songs to which we have all danced for many, many hours. I’m not even an authentic alt/hipster and I can attest to a large portion of 2008’s good times happening while I was rocking out to “Kids” or “Electric Feel.” And the slower, later songs are solid. Sure, it isn’t always clear what any of these songs are about but that really doesn’t matter. They are sequences of sounds, and as such, they successfully rock my socks off.
