Product Description

They had one hit back in 2002, and then they sort of just disappeared, but Chicago's OK Go are back to give it another go. The four-piece entered a Malmo, Sweden, studio late last year, and with the help of producer Tore Johansson (Franz Ferdinand, The Cardigans), exited with their second album, Oh No. Capitol. 2005.

4.0 out of 5 stars What the Killers wish they were.... Sept. 29 2006
Format:Audio CD
That's right; these guys are better than the Killers. With a fantastic sense of melody, delectable hooks and a wonderfully dark sense of humour, Ok Go should be the standard-bearers of the retro new-wave movement. Sadly, because so few people have heard of them, they are not. As someone who has been a fan since picking up their debut 2 years ago, I was shocked to discover that this album had already been out for a year before I discovered it. Shame on you, Capitol!

This latest disc adds a few rough edges to the sound of their perfectly polished debut, and is all the better because of it. From the raw rock n' roll of the first track through to the end, these guys have definitely got their game on. Do your ears and mind a favour and pick this up.

4.0 out of 5 stars When they finally come to destroy the earth March 17 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
"You will go into a room together and you will rock."

So promises Tore Johansson, producer of OK Go's sophomore album, "Oh No." And the powerpop band actually manages to do just that: make people rock, with rollicking rockers laced with punk. If a few songs didn't strongly resemble other dancerock bands of the moment, it would be "invincible!"

The album kicks off with two of the best songs on it: the sinuous, muscular "Invincible" and energetic rock-stomp of "Do What You Want." These songs are catchy, rough and gloriously rock-y. Pretty good replay value too -- despite the oft-repeated phrase "come on come on!", vocalist Damian Kulash keeps the sound fresh. "When they finally come to destroy the Earth/they'll have to deal with you first/bet they won't be expectin' that!"

Until about the halfway point of the album, OK Go continues this energetic dancerock sound, churning out one excellent song after another. But it's followed by songs that are a B to the first few songs' A. The last half is not terrible by any stretch, but the second stretch of songs lack that explosive, muscular style in the first.

It's a credit to OK Go's dancerock capability that they can overcome the strong Franz Ferdinand vibes that permeate a few of the songs. They have a musical IT -- they have energy, solid riffs, and they have a vibrant style that makes their music even more entertaining.

Musically, they're very good and polished, with some very solid rock vibes matched up to some entertaining lyrics. They have actually become better since their debut album, downplaying the keyboard in favour of thick mats of guitar and bass. As a makeover, moving from powerpop to dancerock is a pretty inspired one.

Until about the halfway point of the album, OK Go continues this energetic dancerock sound, churning out one excellent song after another. But alas, their best material is used at the start, and is followed by some songs that sound a bit too like the Futureheads and Franz Ferdinand. Not surprising, when one considers that Johansson also produced Franz Ferdinand's debut.

The last half is not terrible by any stretch, merely not great; the second stretch of songs lack that explosive, muscular style in the first. And what is WITH that half-hour "bonus" track that has nothing except the odd rustle?

5.0 out of 5 stars uh, yeah buy it! Sept. 28 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
definately a good album! Seriously, who doesn't feel like getting up and dancing when they see the video for A Million Ways? They've got such an infectious rhythm and awesome guitars, it's really hard not to like the album. The CD is diversified, containing some upbeat stuff and some more mellow-ey type stuff. The last track is confusing though, what's up with that?

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like Pearl Jam May 16 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album really surprised me. I bought it because of the song Here it Goes Again, but none of the other tracks sound like it. I thought these guys sound like a preppy, indie Pearl Jam (Mixed in with a touch of The Fray) and it was a nice combination. One of my favourite albums of the year, it has slow songs and faster indie rock songs as well.
