Hmmm. Given the slight suspicion of prog-rock tendencies which hangs over MGMT, was it really such a wise move for Andrew Vanwyngarden to take the stage dressed like a junior Rick Wakeman? This is the sort of idle thought that crosses your mind during a set which, frankly, seems to lose it's way during the middle five or six numbers. Opening with 'Electric Feel' gets the band off to a flying start, but then it all begins to sag like a bad 70s perm and there's no standout moment until they blast into 'Time to Pretend' at the end.

Cheese says: Seriously bouncy at the start, seriously bouncy at the end, boring in the middle - good job I had a bottle handy as I needed a drink
