If you can make it past the 80's influenced keyboards and the smacking of the catchy pop/punk guitar riffs and rasping of scattered high pitches in the...wait, that is OK Go!
Maybe you have heard this before, but here it comes again with a little extra cheese on top (Example: Song titled "You're so damn Hot"). But don't let the pink and yellow flowers fool you, this band has some spunk.
As much as anyone would like to sit and analyze an album, there isn't too deep to dig on this overly poppy collection of cliche love songs. It does have it's own spark of originality (due in part to that 'overly poppy' thing). "C-C-C Cinnamon lips/and candy kisses on my tongue" sings Damian Kalush Jr. on "C-C-C Cinnamon lips"...no really. But don't laugh too hard. It's so cheesy it's almost anti-pop. And it is a catchy little sucker.
Kalush, who wrote the vast majority of the material on the album on his own, also shows up as a production credit. Not bad for the Chicago indie boy who decided to turn his back on the overdone "emo" image. Him and the boys of OK Go stopped taking themselves and their music so seriously and just let it all hang out on this refreshing splash of "Baby" rock. Cranked up distortion pedals and new wave keyboards that would catch Ric Ocasek off guard, lyrics that say "I can be happy without you" in more ways than one (one of them being "Don't be so damn benign/and don't waste my fuckin' time" as sung on "Don't Ask Me").
Bottom line is if you like good music and know when it's time to just rock out to some catchy songs then you will love this album, that is if the single "Get over it" hasn't already taken over your mind.
