C/D: OK Go's self-titled...

I just thought that this might be an interesting argument if it hasn't been discussed already. I'm not really a fan of this band, although I was impressed with their live show (opening for the still-rad Fountains of Wayne). Upon hearing the album, I found parts to border on unlistenable, others tolerable, and others to be pretty catchy and entertaining (certainly better than new Weezer... how regrettable); I would like to hear what you lovely people thought of this record.

Fuck OK GO. They fucking suck.

Get Over It = charming single.

The rest of the disc = firey trainwreck of shallow ideas and weak execution.

Excrutiating. Betted used as a coaster.

Anyone seen the "A Million Ways" Dance video? Absolutely astoundingly good! (and a pretty catchy tune, too)

(Oh, by the way: It's an 18 hour shot choreographed and filmed at wildly varying frame rates... and it gets better as it goes on).

I gotta give credit for these guys figuring out the 'indifferent to the music but every video is great' balance:

So these guys just make videos and then write songs for them?

Guilty pleasure: "White Knuckles"... kinda like an extremelyyyyyyyyyyy low-rent "I Would Die 4 U".

i hate this band.

"So these guys just make videos and then write songs for them?"

I just saw an ad for a live performance of theirs which said they will play 'the soundtrack to your favorite videos' and I was like WTF is that shit

Well, these guys do make way more interesting videos than songs, to the point where I would be shocked if the videos weren't the feature of their live performance too
