Album: Amazing Baby, Rewild, (V2)

Internet buzz, youth, good hair and being mates with MGMT will get you so far, but while Amazing Baby might be able to pull the neon-coloured headbands over some folk's eyes, this Brooklyn band's debut sounds derivative (everything from Tenacious D to Pink Floyd), predictable (too many lines about kids getting high) and, worst of all, dull (as Coldplay are to Radiohead so this lot are to their famous friends).

The next MGMT? Only if it stands for Must Get More Tunes. Even the androgynous floppy-hair brigade deserve better than this.
