    Very dissapointing, a second rate daft punk. Nothing original is done in this album. I am honestly surprised by the good reviews this got.

    Seriously overrated. Uninspired, boring and annoyingly cheesy. Astonished at how much attention this has received. Matmos and Isolee

    This is one helluva record. Fantastic from start to finish. The first track remains my single favorite song of the year for some bizarre, unexplainable reason. Anyhow, it's the second best album of the year so far, behind the already-classic Arular.

    Kan't quite bring myself to give 10/10. great 80% of album, perhaps a couple of the tunes are a bit old??? but the rest is reassuringly excellent. another direction ofr French House, away from daftpunk/air,etc.

    Very artisticly expressed techno sound. Really something alternative in the eletronic scene. It even gets better with every listening session.

    This guy is great. In the rap n' country tradition of Big n' Rich and Cowboy Troy, this guy is tops! Big ups to French hillbilly OK Cowboy. The revolution starts here.

    Outstanding stuff. You just know he's French from the first listen. Evokes robotic bliss. You just can't stop tapping out those beats.

    this album is damn great. the good old songs + several new wonderful ones. "no fun" and "repair machines" are the highlights, along with the already famous "la rock 01" and "poney pt 1".

    Good enough to inspire me to tell you guys about it. I loved it the first time I listened to it, and I can't stop.

    I don't really get the Daft Punk comparisons people are making. This sounds nothing like Daft Punk (who I also adore). Vitalic's sound is much more visceral. I have a new favorite track everytime i listen. One of the standout house albums of last year (er, this year for those who didn't import).

    One of the best electronic releases of the last few years. A must listen.

    While most electronic music is just bland and repetitive, OK Cowboy is well developed and unexpected.
  23. Jan 28, 2013
    With highlights like: "My Friend Dario, The Past, Poney Part 1, Newman and La Rock 01", Vitalic proves that he knows what he's doing. OK Cowboy is a marvelous, riveting experience.

  1. Beyond the grooves etched in this record, what is most exciting is the ease with which Arbez brushes aside the canon of 90s giants.
  2. New Musical Express (NME)
    This is an album that leaves you in absolutely no doubt that, at the very least, Pascal Arbez-Nicolas is the best thing to come out of France since Daft Punk. [30 Apr 2005, p.63]
  3. A record that's in the same league as Homework or Discovery.
