Product Description

Product Description



Chicago four-piece OK Go's self-titled debut has all the two-minute power-punk bravado of acts such as the Vines and the Hives, yet this is combined with complex word-play and fulsome glam-rock 1970s-style choruses. Part beat poet, part exuberant rock star, Damian Kulash is a fine frontman, his snarling vocals perfectly suited to bittersweet anthems such as "1000 Miles Per Hour" and "The Fix Is In". The band also make liberal use of samples, such as the grainy hip-hop loop that makes the anti-warmongering song "Hello, My Treacherous Friends" so memorable. This is art rock without pretentiousness, new wave without retro chords and skinny ties. --Lucy O'Brien

This was pretty odd, but definately not in a bad way.
1. Get Over It: Not too bad, but rather whiny in it's complaints against society as a whole as being materalistic and shallow. (Think Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous)
2. Don't Ask Me: The good stuff, this is a reminder from all boys to all girls that things don't go back to the way they've been before so easily, and sometimes you can't be just friends.
3. You're So Damn Hot: Basically, an anthem like cknowledgement that hey, sometimes I can be shallow too.
4. What to Do: Eh, not bad. Reminding us all that simple is sometimes the way to go.
5. 1000 Miles Per Hour: Good, escapism is always good.
6. Shortly Before the End: Catchy though somewhat depressing, not a bad death song.
7. Return: Very good, looking back at a dead love, and guilt.
8. There's a Fire: The Boy Who Cried Wolf's anthem. But also very real.
9. C-C-C-Cinnamon Lips: Not as bad as you'd think.
It's a goofy love song, (think "If I Had a Million Dollars" but far better.)
10. The Fix is In: Esentially the same as What to Do.
11. Hello My Treacherous Friends: Good, though odd. The title explains it all.
12. Bye Bye Baby: About a man his friends and mates leave behind for a job, this is pretty good for guilt and dreaming. Made me think of Be Like That.

I totally, totally love this CD and OK Go! I heard Get Over It on a promotion CD I got from a radio station just over a year ago, and my dad bought OK Go's CD after he heard the song... needless to say, he hasn't seen it since. I am addicted to this album. All of the songs are catchy, cheery, and energizing. OK Go's genre, after starting out as an indie rock band, changed to perky rock and roll, after they "tried sucking and then decided to be good" (lead singer Damian Kulash quoted). Get Over It is a great single and loved by many. C-C-C-Cinnamon Lips, Don't Ask Me, and Bye Bye Baby are such feel-good, guitar and keyboard-ridden songs, and the songs vary in tempo, Shortly Before the End being the slowest, but still amazing. This is my favorite album ever, and it will be yours, too, once you buy it! I love OK Go so much that I went to a concert of theirs this past weekend while they were in DC. Amazing, amazing, amazing. These guys have such a sense of humor and connect to the crowd, and their album will wow you just like their concert wowed me. Check out their site, [...] and keep an eye out for a new album (they're working on new songs)! Please, please buy this CD and tell all your friends about this great band!

I'll start out by saying that if you're into inventive, happy pop rock (some of it could be called pop punk, I guess), this CD's worth buying. There are several excellent tracks, including the single Get Over It. However, as other reviewers have pointed out, there are a few rather uninteresting tracks stuck in the middle. I can see including them, but they really interrupt the flow of the album, and pretty soon I think I'm going to be skipping those tracks, something I don't like to do. Shortly Before The End particularly bothers me, while There's A Fire and What To Do are just a bit annoying, and 1000 Miles Per Hour is all right, but still disappointing.
Get Over It is followed by two great energetic tracks: Don't Ask Me and You're So Damn Hot. If the rest of the CD were filled with more of the same, I'd almost be happy, except that it would mean losing Return, which is now far and away my favorite. Return is a powerful, somewhat grunge-y song that should make you want to sing along. And finally, I like C-C-C-Cinnamon Lips, since I think all the little quirky things come together well, but I can imagine people hating it. The tracks I haven't mentioned are also very good, but not quite worthy of buying a CD to hear them. All in all, a very strong debut, and let's hope for more of the good stuff from OK Go.

I had to come back and edit this to change from 4 to five stars. I saw these guys live, and they played all the songs I didn't like on this album. They were all AMAZING songs in concert, recording just can't capture the feeling behind them; now I listen to them in a whole new light. Also, I read an interview with Damian (the lead singer) explaining the story behind Hello My Treacherous Friends, which makes it that much better. I've been playing this constantly since September and am not close to tired of it!
I got ahold of as much of OK GO's material as I could a few months ago, and have been enjoying them immensely. Based on my database of songs, I would give them a 5. This is very listenable power pop, and what I love about this band is that they don't stick to one sound or song format. They range from straight-out rock on Get Over It, to intelligent lyrical musings on What to Do, and It's Tough to Have a Crush.
However, this album rated four stars because of the song order, and choice of songs for the album. Tracks 5-8 don't show OK GO at their best. The four songs are all rather slow, and create a void in the middle of the album. These songs should have been mixed in with the more up-tempo songs to keep the album from bogging down. Also, I would have like to see Kiss Me, Son of God on the album.
Definitely a worthy purchase from a band I'm hoping to hear a lot more from!
