The sky's the limit for Ookla the Mok.

-- Dr. Demento, host, The Dr. Demento Show

I got the CD and enjoyed it quite a bit.
Good stuff.

-- James Gunn, screenwriter, Scooby Doo, Dawn of the
Dead, The Specials, Slither

---------------

Oh. My. God.

It was quite nifty making my own tv show and getting
it on the air, but to receive such a cool special
thanks by one of my all-time favorite bands...
Good god, I may have made something of myself after
all.

-- Scott Gimple, creator/executive producer, Disney's Fillmore

Your new CD is EXCELLENT. The production is terrific,
the lyrics are entertaining, and the melodies are
really strong. You have every right to be very proud.

Maggi, a fan

Stellar performances from two very funny songwriters
Ookla the Mok, in their fourth commercial album, continue to amaze and astound with insightful, humorous lyrics and well-crafted, diverse songs. A favorite at science fiction conventions, as well as on Dr. Demento, Adam, Rand, and their band make me laugh, dance and sing along for hours -- even after the CD has stopped. Thanks, guys.

davidthart

another great cd from the masters of pop culture satire
No one else could do a more kick-ass set of tunes about such pop culture subjects as Cher, Gary Coleman and Star Trek's Mr. Worf (my favorite!). Great music, clever lyrics and neat harmonies by Rand and Adam. Thanks, guys and I hope there's lots more to come in the future!

Jotsa Memos Hadow

A catchy-tuned tour of what makes us love celebrity not ourselves.
Ookla the Mok's new CD oh OK LA is full of hooky pop licks and catchy lyrics and manages to see beneath the surface of what makes Hollywood so attractive even while it repels us. The lyrics are a careful craft of what makes us tick as regular people and why we have problems with celebrity--the same reasons we have problems with ourselves and our intimates. If you don't find yourself humming one of these tunes after you listen to the sample songs, you'll be SINGING them.

Fastidious and Precise

Go on ... and buy this CD! Pure pop genius!
Clever lyrics, fantastic vocals and harmonies, great musicianship, excellent production, cool packaging ... I could go on and on. And just when you think you have a favorite song, another one takes over. Before you know it, the whole album has you hooked! I love it! I never leave home without it! Buy it now!

Sometimes ultra-intelligent. Sometimes bathroom silly. Always amazing.
Any band that can talk about Cher's derriere, and her nom de guerre within 30 seconds deserves a listen. They explore elements of celebrity that we've all wondered... and they do it in both a hilarious and sensitive fashion: you can't judge Micheal Jackson before "you've walked a mile backwards in his sequined shoes". And, of course, there's a little Gary Coleman in all of us. Ditch the "alternative" music that all sounds the same. Try on this Ookla the Mok CD for a little while -- trust me, it'll fit. If it doesn't immediately, you'll grow into it. And it'll leave you itching for more.

Just what I was looking for! A mix of thoughtful pop, funny filk, send-ups and
I love Ookla! This is a great and well put-together CD; the mix of songs range from funny to thoughtful, from pop to filk, all of it fun.
Thanks guys!
