Does It Offend You, Yeah?, ‘You Have No Idea What You Are Getting Yourself Into’ (Almost Gold)

Mikael Wood // April 15, 2008

The only offensive thing about this English electro-rock outfit’s debut is how blatantly they rip off Justice ripping off Daft Punk. (Contrary to the CD’s title, if you’ve read a music blog sometime during the past two years, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting yourself into.) That said, DIOYY? aren’t without their third-generation charms: Most of these tunes contain at least one deliciously trashy robot-metal riff, and the best cut, “Dawn of the Dead,” boasts a heartsick chorus seemingly lifted from an obscure Killers B-side.
