Editorial Reviews

The mind-bending band that gave us what is largely considered the decade's most viewed music video (60M clicks- even the Simpsons parodied it), the treadmillmanned "Here It Goes Again" is back. Never content to rest on their laurels, OK GO is preparing to tread anything but familiar territory with their upcoming new album, Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky.The super creative Ok Go still has the DIY attitude and artistic vision that millions fell in love with. Innovative videos for "WTF?" and "This Too Shall Pass" Syncs for Ok Go have already debuted in Soundtracks, including NEW MOON, the second installment of The Twilight series, The 90210 soundtrack and "One Tree Hill".

OK GO: OF THE BLUE COLOUR OF THE SKY
produced by Dave Fridmann
bio by Ira Glass

Okay, let’s just get this part out of the way. Most people know OK Go from their videos, especially those treadmills. Any video that’s well enough known to be parodied on The Simpsons is a cultural force in itself and, checking the YouTube rating right before sitting down to write this, I ...

The band is constantly exploring new creative territory in both music and video.

Despite that, I can see that this isn't a terrible album if it's a sound that you like and are ready for.

This album has been in heavy rotation in my iTunes ever since it came out. I'm not a music-techie person so I can't tell you about mixing or any of that stuff. I can just tell you what I hear and what I like. This I really like. Even more than the first two albums. It wouldn't be too much to say I absolutely love it.
Yes, I was a big fan of the old Prince music to which everyone is comparing it. And if you read their bio blurb on Lala you'll see that they freely admit this album is influenced by Prince. And I catch that feeling in "White Knuckles" and maybe a little bit in "Skyscrapers".
Really, though, this sounds like the third album from a really great band - as in a band that is not afraid of growth and change even if it takes them in a new direction from what made them popular. Their sound changed. Um, yes. That's what happens when bands don't pull from the same stale formulas. If you want a band that always sounds the same go buy a half dozen Nickelback albums. If you want an album full of songs that are both catchy and full of soul, then pick up Of the Blue Colour of the Sky.

Ever since their 2002 self titled debut, OK Go has been a wild card pop rock player. Their music can best be classified as intelligent power pop, a label not often bestowed upon the genre. With the release of this new album, the band finds themselves inspired and ready to create a truly unique collection of songs. Damian Kulash is a musical mad scientist. His creativity is not bounded by the pressures of record labels or fans expectations. Having said that, there seems to be some controversy surrounding the direction OK Go's "sound" has taken. I disagree with the naysayers. Take a look back at songs like "A Million Ways" (from Oh No) and "There's a Fire" (from the self titled). This is the natural progression of a band who does not know how to write a bad song. I love the more funky / experimental route the band has taken, and if you give it a chance, I think you will too.

I just downloaded this album, and I was very excited to hear this new awesome OK GO album in full (after listening to the clips before my purchase). It is a very good cd. It's not exactly old OK GO, but its a logical progression of a band's sound. My only problem is that the quality of the mp3 download is udder crap. I thought my phone was vibrating on the table, but the horrible noise was coming out of my speakers, I am definitely disappointed. I have bought mp3 albums on amazon before, but they have never been this bad (sound quality wise); great album though.

I would absolutely love this album if they didn't overdrive and distort the living daylights out of it during the mastering phase. It is absolutely unlistenable. If you ever laughed at the car next to you playing the music far beyond the amplifiers range, and it comes out sounding like complete crap, then you will find yourself laughing at yourself for buying this mess.

So far they have released three versions of this cd, and none of them are the "friendly, listenable" version. Each time, you get stuck with the same crappy production. I am sure they thought it was artful. To me, it's like spending months creating the perfect painting, then throwing a bucket of paint on it and saying, "There! Now it's done!" Sad, because the music is great. I saw them on Cobert and it was fantastic. It's a shame that the crummy sound wasn't mentioned in the interview.

I would have given this album 5 stars if it wasn't for the tortured, distorted, mess that they made it.

OK Go brings slightly off-center, quirky but often catchy songs, and the band's knack for great pop tunes has served them well in the past. The 2002 self-titled debut album was a breath of fresh air, but 2005's "Oh No" album proved to be the critical and commercial breakout album for the band (and containing of course the hit single "A Million Ways"). Now, 5 years after "Oh No", finally comes the band's eagerly anticipated third album.

"Of the Blue Colour of the Sky" (13 tracks; 51 min.) starts off with an unusually heavy "WTF", and after that it becomes clear very quickly that the band's sound since the previous album 5 years ago has developed (read: changed) significantly. Not nearly as eclectic or catchy, for one. A lot "busier" too. The highlights are far too few for me: a breezy "This Too Shall Past", "All Is Not Lost" entertains; a light "I Want You So Bad I Can't Breathe", and you'll notice these all appear on the first half of the album. In fact, as the album goes on, things get "weirder and weirderer". By the time you get to "Back From Kathmandu", you wonder whether this is even the same band from "A Million Ways".

In all, this is not a bad album per se, but I didn't expect such a radical departure from the band's established sound. For those that like this album, more power to ya. I'll probably stick with the first two albums. I've seen OK Go a number of times over the years, most recently last September at the Monolith music festival at the Red Rocks near Denver, and as usual, they put on a tremendously enjoyable 1 hr. set. If you wonder where you can hear these guys, check out WOXY (BAM! The Future of Rock and Roll), the internet-only station that brings the best indie-music in the country. Meanwhile, buyer beware: "Of the Blue Colour of the Sky" is not a bad album, but OK Go has been much better than this.
