MGMT- Little Dark Age
Jeremy Williams-Chalmers, Arts Correspondent
MGMT have had a rather tumultuous career to date. With three albums already under their belt, Ben Goldwasser and Andrew Van Wyngarden started strong but have not managed to maintain the pace. Although it only reached #8 on the UK album charts, their 2007 debut Oracular Spectacular is the definitive sound of a whole generation.

While 2010's Congratulations may have achieved a higher chart position, the change in sonic direction did not really captivate their expectant listenership.

By the time they returned with 2013 with their eponymous third record, the loyal fanbase had dwindled and the album made little impact. Armed with a re-vamped sound and striking visuals, can Little Dark Age reinvigorate their career?

Little Dark Age is without doubt the most mainstream aligned album the duo have ever released. This should not put you off. The 80s driven sound may be a real shift for those that still only pay attention to the duo's debut, but it is well thought out and memorably delivered.

With the album highlights One Thing Left To Try and TSLAMP boasting a dreamy Europop sound, this is an album that is a very marked new direction for the band, which will either have you compelled and addicted, or hankering for a return to the band's early form.
