Remixed… MGMT “Congratulations” (Erol Alkan Rework Remix)

MGMT have had a harder time promoting their latest effort, Congratulations, than they did with their debut album, Oracular Spectacular.  Critics did not embrace the sophomore album quite like they did the debut.  Personally, I thought the album was not that bad, but couldn’t ever live up to the hype of the first record.  So when an album doesn’t do quite what they would hope it would do they call in the remixers.  Enter Erol Alkan.  “Congratulations” the album’s title song is their best song on the album and it’s very mellow, soft, and beautiful.  Erol turned the somber song into a disco, bass driven dance track and the results are successful.  It’s made me listen to the album again and re-think how I feel about it.  This remix works because it is restrained and well produced.
