MGMT - Flash Delirium

After a depressingly lacklustre performance in The Ambassador in Dublin a friend of mine said that MGMT were going to release a "difficult" second album and disappear. I just put it down to bad sound so you can imagine the smug grin on his face when I expressed my disappointment at this new offering.

The song is all over the place. There's a whiff of a decent melody in there somewhere but it's bookended by a lacklustre start which segues into a truly cringeworthy middle section and a terrible ending.

I loved their first album, but they got a bit of a kicking from some sections of the hip blognescenti. It sounds like they may be trying a bit too hard to prove some of their detractors wrong here. Difficult second album on the way then!
