Rolling Stone - pp.63-643 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] testifies to MGMT's restlessness as songwriters and human beings....The set closes with the title track, a spangled folk rocker about the weight of success..."
Entertainment Weekly - p.70"[T]his odd little sonic onion ultimately rewards those patient enough to peel the layers." -- Grade: B
Billboard (p.32) - "[The] album blends psychedelia with elements of post-punk, surf rock and even folk. The track 'Someone's Missing' begins sparsely with soft guitars and sitar-like effects that echo the falsetto vocals before swelling into an easygoing funk jam."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.965 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] explodes with the colour of British psychedelia and bulges at the seams with irresistible melodies....A weird, wonderful, complete work..."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.57Ranked #3 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2010" -- "CONGRATULATIONS was elegant, tuneful and mind-blowing..."
Paste (magazine) (p.89) - "[I]n between enlightened ramblings, the band interjects a refrain that bursts forth brighter than a July sun and cues up psychedelic moments that wash ashore like the calmest of waves."
Uncut (magazine) - p.874 stars out of 5 -- "This is a willful and lovably eccentric second album from a band who've decided they'd had a sniff of being pop stars and decided they'd much rather be weird and esoteric, thanks all the same."
