Anyone else have their disc 2 labels flipped? My C/D stickers are on wrong sides.

Really amazing album. The songs and arrangements have a classic feel, but the record feels new and fresh thanks to the sparkling and inventive production. Records like these—poppy, melodic, sonically adventurous—are very rare these days. A nice bonus are the lyrics: Funny, insightful and on-topic! Love the social media critique. I see that Ariel Pink was involved on a few songs, and I must say that his influence on the whole mood of the record can't be understated. The album has strong, melodic and catchy singles ('Me and Michael' and 'LDA' shine the brightest) but it also features some psychedelic, experimental moments like 'Days That Got Away.' The songs are really chock-full of interesting sounds and production techniques that reveal themselves over time and through repeated listens. It's a great headphone album, but I must say that it's best listened to on a stereo.

An excellent album. Misses anything of the epic brilliance of "Siberian Breaks", but not sure if they could ever scale that peak again. Sound quality is gorgeous. Would agree that it would have been better 2 or 3 sided, but what the heck, when the music is this amazing I can get the kids to turn it over ever 12 minutes or so!

Did anybody notice that there are no lyrics for days that got away (track7) printed on the sleeve?

I don't get the 2 disc criticisms. They obviously did it for the best sound. lol

Bought this today and really enjoyed the sound of this pressing. Very warm and bassy with little to no surface noise. My only complaint was the fact that it was spread across two records. It's a 44-minute long album that could have easily been pressed onto one record. But I'm happy that this decision was probably done for the best since the records sound great. I'd say it's worth the $30 I paid for it. Great album and great pressing.

I like everything MGMT do from their more experimental pieces to the more iconic pop tunes which still retain an edge. This album is brilliant fun and wonderfully produced from the lows to the highs. It's stunningly produced on vinyl with its spread over two albums well worth it.

Andrew's voice is smooth. There is a good range of tracks - When You Die is great fun, with its incongruous lyrics? But MGMT lyrics often make you wonder. [In fact side B is wonderful !!!]

Yay! Perfect record!

Just got this today. The pressing is not too bad, but why is this album a double? Its only around 42/43 minutes long, could have just easily fit on one disc with no real loss of sound quality (plus you have to get up all the time after about two songs). And if you HAD to release a two disc set, why not have it run at 45rpm instead of 33rpm for that extra sound quality like the recent Brian Eno reissues? Feels like no thought has gone into this at all...

Great album though.
