I don't see the psych 101 in it nor do I really believe in a science like psychology (*generalizations).  I really had no ill feelings for Andrew until I saw the list.  Seeing that Andrew played more bass on the album than Matt is lame. 

It's like Ringo starr not being allowed to play the drum parts on the first beatles recordings, except here we have 3 ringos (practically 4 from what I remember he also played more synths than Ben)

No need to argue on a forum that needs to be all about good vibes.

thanks trahatokad i'm glad u like it.
now then
Both implies two Owlman (Owlwoman?).  There were 6 main people recording Congratulations.  Sorry for bashing Andrew.   :-X

Every song is really solid on Congratulations.  I think it deserves Masterpiece status but boy when they released that album cover I thought WTF.
that's cool u like Congratulations so much. 
the album notes indicates in the songwriting credits two names.
not surprised that u would bash andrew seeing as how it's the common reaction of someone who writes he "used to be fascinated by Andrew" and
"The next dream I was talking to Andrew and they were playing this show with this hip-hopish guy and I was just trying to compliment the guy and he's like "don't talk to me I'm a motherfuckin legend"  Then Andrew had to go do laundry but I think he was just going to bang some chick.  Later on MGMT was going to do an interview about a children's book they did and Andrew had a picture I drew tucked into it."
But what then one time you wrote a fan letter or you took a picture of all your posters but no response so now it's
Geez why not just call this the Andrew Vanwyngarden Band ::)

It's cool that they are all so multi-talented but this list makes Andrew look like a huge control freak.

Hate to break it to ya but this is pretty basic psyyyyych 101. also, it's nice we share a love for congratulations but if you actually listened to them playing the instruments it doesn't seem like anyone is a control freak at all, unless knowing how to play multiple instruments means something about you as a person which i'd like to see the stats on that.

This is awesome. I've always wondered who played each instrument.

i hope this is ok here
but I have been listening over and over
And reading over and over...  :D
the notes on who plays what in the Congratulations..
And I just thought maybe people would like to say their favorite
Polyinstrumental moments in general.
Mine are
Andrew on bass and sitar, Matt on guitar,Will on bass, James and Hank on synths live. Ben on flute live!
My favorite drummer in the world is andrew it is true.
If you maybe don't have this, you can see the notes here :)
