5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Awesome. June 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Vitalic's OK Cowboy is a great upbeat, fun and generally awesome album. If you're happy and you know it, bob your head. It starts off with Polkamatic which is a very cool, almost Popcorn-esque song that really only gets you started.

Throughout this entire album I felt myself almost infused with the energy of Vitalic's playing. It is a very cool sound, and if you liked Daft Punk's Discovery, even more so if you like Daft Punk's Human After All, I really think you'll love this album. I really hope to see more great stuff from this band in the future.

Songs I loved:

Polkamatic

Poney Part 1

Wooo

La Rock 01

Poney Part 2

Definitely check this out! Hopefully a cheaper version will come to Amazon and you can buy it at a regular price, because this is definitely worth the buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best records of the year May 4, 2005
By J. R.
Format:Audio CD
The heavy synth-based swagger of these trashy tunes makes this one of the best electro albums I've heard in some time. "La Rock 01" and "My Friend Dario" are the best-known tracks - the former building into a steady, unwavering grind, the latter much more pop-based. Other delights include the immensely catchy "Wooo" and the poignant swirl of "The Past". Vocoders proliferate, but they're generally used in a creative way. There's a certain sense of postpunk murk in the use of synthesizers to only vaguely suggest melodies. This is great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond words October 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Place this CD in your car stereo.

Hit the highway, drive south across the USA, blast across the fence at the Mexican border, up your speed to 120 and barrel through to Central America. Attach rocket boosters and hop the Panama Canal. Zing through South America, attach hydrofoil to bottom of vehicle. Race across Antarctica and into Africa. Throw on sunscreen, up speed to 200, and plow into France.

Stop the car, say hello to Vitalic (Pascal Arbez), and thank him for giving you the most ingenious, ecstatically ass-kicking electro-techno-whatever-pop album in recorded history.

Don't stay too long bothering Vitalic. Go home, cowboy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electro at it's best February 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
very awesome debut. vitalic is by far one of my favorite electro artists and this album can prove why. you can put this cd at a party and just press play and let the album run. i've heard many of these songs mixed at live sets as well including "LA Rock 01", "Poney, Pt1", "My Friend Dario", "No Fun", and "Newman". Totally worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have heard this sound before February 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Also I do love this album and gave it 5 stars, but I have heard most of this sound before. A very similiar music in style and power was produced a few years ago by another French man. Laurent Garnier's album ( the only one I know) "Unreasonable Behaviour" sounds so alike that I wonder was Vitalic actually influenced by him.I am actually amazed that nobody has made that connection yet.Until know Laurent Garnier was one of my most liked performers in that style of music, now I have to add Vitalic to that short list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow Cowboy! December 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I ran across this album on one of those "hipster" websites best albums of the year lists, and when they said that "ok cowboy" was what daft punk's "human after all" should have been, my interest was sparked. As far as the daft punk comparision, this album BLOWS ANYTHING they have ever done out of the water. "Ok Cowboy" is everything electronic should be, freaky, dirty, sexy, aggressive and keeping a good beat always. Here is just a description of the first three, stellar songs:

Intro - Polkamatic = oh my freaking god, this is one of most freaky things I have ever heard, its like music the Goddess Bunny would dance to. But none the less, I love it.

My Friend Dario - this song has caught a little buzz, has a weird lady talking about whatelse "my friend dario", then goes into pulsating electronica. a little splash of nin.

Poney Party 1 - another freaky ass song. if you are familiar with Visage, this kinda has that "fade to grey" vibe going for it, with some creepy dude singing, but again the music is nocturnal bliss.

trust me, this is an incredible album. so original. i heard this guy makes his music with no instruments or something. who knows. who knows what the hell is going on in vitalic's head?

5.0 out of 5 stars BESTE ELECTRONICA IN YEARS December 21, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I HAVE THIS ALBUM IN VYNIL FOR A LONG TIME. NOW, I BOUGHT THE CD. ITS ONE OF THE BEST ELECTRONIC ALBUNS I'VE HEARD IN THE LAST 10 YRS OR SO. ALL THE TRACKS ARE AWESOME. THERE'S A ROCK APPROACH WITH A LOT OF WELL MADE PATTERNS. ALL THE PEOPLE TALK ABOUT DAFT PUNK OR JUSTICE. FROM FRANCE, VITALIC IS THE BEST.
