This new album brings back old memories in more than one way. The first déjà vu is the fast-paced indie rattle and clatter rock n’ roll that we all have heard so many times over the past 10 years by bands like The Hives, Jet, and Smashing Pumpkins.

The second thing that comes to mind is that the title of the album, OH NO, is very, very appropriate.
The overall concept that OK GO follows is stupid simple. Take one good song, in this case the opening track “Invincible”, duplicate the sound, rhythm, and the pace, and then make 12 more songs just like the first one. The effect, it can’t be emphasized enough, is boring, boring, and again boring.
The only positive vibe one can get out of this record is that, hopefully, this duplicating indie trend will be over soon. But we have to give OK GO credit for being honest about the shortcomings of its album by calling it OH NO.
