“Congratulations is musically adventurous, featuring nine psychedelic, space-inspired tracks. The space-rock aesthetic was no doubt influenced by producer and experimental musician Peter Kember, formerly of Spacemen 3. VanWyngarden also says the album was influenced by surf rock. There’s a chance that fans looking for more fun, electro-rock singles from MGMT won’t find what they’re looking for in the band’s sophomore release. But Congratulations turns out to be a more rewarding album to digest.” – Jess Gitner, NPR
