Highlights are Here It Goes Again, and A Million Ways - don't forget to check out their home-made videos on YouTube! I also loved The House Wins.
Honestly, this CD is *well* worth a tenner of your hard-earned cash. Buy it!
Parallels can be drawn with The Hives and The Vines; Oh No is packed with catchy, stomp along numbers and sharp lyrics which seize the ear and leave you with excerpts fixed in your mind long after the album finishes. There is just the right mix of racing, ballistic power rock and thoughtful, introspective harmonising to keep the interest running through the full forty-minute set of thirteen tracks.
In all, the band executes a glorious array of styles and demonstrate a capacity to provoke thought as well as energise and uplift. In fact, this album is almost too polished; too slickly produced and too tidy. It feels like a precise execution of musical and commercial nous - even the album notes are exactly calculated so that every inch of space is used and every band member photograph is unerringly in-keeping with the ruffling, arty style of this effort. It is a wonderful collection of memorable melodies and pompous, smashing rock eccentricity, and if they had deemed to fit to slide onto the CD the notoriously imaginative and creative videos to A Million Ways and Here It Goes Again, it would be even better.
Perhaps more unfair than any of these facts is the continued lack of attention shown towards OK Go. While 'Get Over It' was a major success in the UK and the US, and the band's wonderful live shows win over audiences wherever they might choose to travel, the band still has to win major mainstream acceptance. This is all in spite of 'Oh No', an album which floats from high to dreamy high, on the band's own brand of fresh and catchy power-pop. This is music for the first day of summer, for running in the park, for watching clouds go by. And for this purpose, it is absolutely perfect.
Perhaps OK Go are more important to the world than the threat of global warming. Perhaps they aren't. Perhaps you think I'm being a little overblown comparing a simple band to the fate of the world. But then, if you think that, you've obviously never seen them dance.
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.Read more ›
I went to a concert of theirs about 1½ years ago without really knowing who they were, within the following week I had bought both their albums. Ok Go is an American band with a British sound, bringing together the best of both indierock worlds (as I find American indie a bit too soft, and British indie a bit too alternative at times!)
I also recommend their first album, though quite different in style and sound.
There is a lot more to Ok Go than their famous dance moves!
