Oh No - OK Go
Advantages: Great, catchy pop rock songs
Disadvantages: A few fillers
This is Ok Go's second outing in album form (if anyone is as much of a fan as I am, it is also worth checking out their earlier EP's and singles which contain excellent covers of Oliver's Army and Lovecats) and seem to be making a bit of a breakthrough in Britain. Unfortunately it seems to be more because of the wonderful dancing rather than the perfect pop rock songs they so effortlessly produce.
Since their last album, the self-titled Ok Go (also their debut), they have lost two of their members and gained replacements. Their sound has deinfitely changed as a result of this, and even possibly because of a bit of maturing. Invincible, for instance, has heavy distortion throughout (not in a classic rock way, in more of a 'this is hard to listen to' manner), but once a few listens has passed the song will be a favourite. Other tracks are just sheer pop brilliance. Do What You Want has 'ooo ooo' chants that will stay in your head for hours afterwards, Here It Goes Again has THAT treadmill video and A Million Ways To Be Cruel is just genius (the harmonics spell 1000000 cruel).
Summary: Another great album with plenty to build on
