Congratulations, MGMT is #2 in America!

on April 21, 2010, 4:24pm

Despite the apologies and the adult rated content (you know, because there’s no “Kids”) MGMT managed to convince (or trick) 66,000 Americans to take part in its wild acid trip and purchase its sophomore LP, Congratulations. As a result, the Brooklyn duo of Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden now finds itself with the #2 Album on the Billboard Top 200, slotting in right behind Tina Fey’s teen crush, Justin Bieber (I can’t believe I just mentioned Justin Bieber… forgive me!).

We should note, however, that Congratulations‘ first single, “Flash Delirium”, has yet to chart on any of Billboard’s radio airplay tallies, which either means people really liked the album as a whole, or had no idea what they were getting themselves into.
