Years ago, Rolling Stone rated Nirvana's album Nevermind 3 stars. Ever since then, the magazine has gone downhill in the reviewing department. Giving 5 star reviews to only established "classic" artists like Bob Dylan, they often overlook newer, exciting bands. Their latest travesty--rating Ok Go's new album 2 stars--is pathetic at best. The album is a breath of fresh air in the pop genre--this is the "smart-pop" we've all been yearning for, drowning in the boy and girl band mud pool. In a world of "nu-metal", female singer-songwriters, bad (no really bad) radio pop, and derivative hip-hop, the need for music like this is urgent. Listen to "Get Over It" first (the first single and MTV2 video) and then get to the better stuff--"Bye Bye Baby", "Don't Ask Me", "What to Do", "You're So Damn Hot", and the exhilarating time-loop song about a guy with a problem that won't go away, "There's a Fire". The other tracks are equally strong, save for the strange "C-C-C-Cinnamon Lips" that seems out of place. Ok Go is in it's finest form in exciting live shows, but this CD is proof that they are here to stay on stage and off. Thank you to Capitol Records for recognizing their amazing talent.

If this album had a subtitle it would be: " which four snarky art school kids from Chicago endeavor to rock out with tongues planted firmly in cheek."
After listening to OK Go's debut a few times, I am of the opinion that people who dislike this album strongly either don't care for power pop in general or just don't "get it."
The lyrics are so smart alecky that I can't imagine anyone taking it too seriously. The album's aim seems to be mixing big, dumb choruses with whip smart lyrics, purposely confounding the legions of people waiting to dissect the album for faults. (i.e. Rolling Stone's curiously acidic two star review.)
Amongst the usual power pop touchstones, you can hear bits and pieces of J. Geil's Band on the infectious first single "Get Over It" and The Knack's hormone-charged delivery on "You're So Damn Hot."
It isn't all winks and nudges and knowing looks, though. The drumbeat on "Get Over It" returns on "1000 Miles Per Hour," one of the more restrained tracks on the album. Damian's vocals drop most of it's jokiness for the yearning "Return." It doesn't last long, though, because a groovy bassline from Tom Nordwind starts up the fun again on "There's A Fire." The cheeky and cheesy "C-C-C-Cinnamon Lips," with it's handclaps and high-pitched vocals, is another highlight. The haughty chorus to "What To Do" ("Mediocre people do exceptional things all the time...") is bound to polarize people, which I think is half the point. "Hello, My Treacherous Friends" is a great kiss off to the critics and naysayers.
Smart songwriting, a bratty delivery and solid musicianship (not to mention a very affordable price) makes OK Go's debut a definate listen for power pop fans. Give it a shot. It's forty minutes well spent.

Well, by now I'm sure we're all familiar with the Strokes, the White Stripes, the Hives, and, by a slight stretch of fancy, the Vines. For some odd reason, "sounding old" is "sounding new". Personally, I don't understand the correlation but that seems to be the set-up nowadays. The point is: I don't like it. The Strokes were ok, I could listen to them and bob my head. I have mixed opinions on the Hives. At times I can listen to their stuff and appreciate it, at times I get angry. The Vines are also hit or miss with me, and the White Stripes? No. I know many people are against me here, but no.

Then there's OK Go.

Alright, time to play chemist and see how we could make OK Go with other elements. If we were to get this retro movement, add a little Weezer, a dab of Coldplay and a hint of Everclear, then we'd probably have something very similar to these pop-rock nuts. The first song I ever heard, "Get Over It", hinted at Weezer-ish elements of "smart-rock", but did not get close to the band's overall potential. Then I became familiar with songs like "You're So Damn Hot" and "Return", and the CD was mine.

OK Go has that sound that sounds old and new at the same time. I know that sounds cheezy and vague, but that's the truth. As you listen to them, you can easily imagine them on alternative rock radio and with raggedy apparel. But simultaneously, they have so many older elements (a synthesizer that screams mid-80's, a chorus of voices that can easily be the new Beach Boys, etc.) that cannot be ignored or overlooked. I mean, even the album cover looks like a hippie's wallpaper.

You can't tell me that the songs aren't fun.

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!
