Oracular Spectacular gets unfair criticism for having mass appeal imo. Even from the band itself. I love that album front to back

I love both that one and congratulations though so I don't mind picking one over the other. I hope their new album is a return to form but I doubt it.
I doubt it too, MGMT was a pretty bland album, though it has a few decent tracks. I like their first album and don't knock the mass appeal against it, I just really like Congratulations. I don't get why the band hates OS so much though that they seem to be making shit music now as a rejection of their success. Also Metanoia is gr8

I honestly remember next to nothing from that album but I'll give it a shot for you.

I just remember being bored by it.
i mean it's kinda low-key sounding for a lot of it but that's partly what I like about it, in fact despite the strokes having some pretty good songs it's the only time I've actually considered myself a strokes fan, as a whole the band is kinda dull

I think Oracular Spectacular is just more consistent. Congratulations is all over the map in terms of quality. Really high highs and really low lows.

Have you listened to Angles? There are some pretty bombastic moments on there imo, especially the opening track hocuspocus;

Also agreed with this. Though I'm going to be blasting OS when I'm 50 and my kids think I'm lame talking about how this record changed my life
