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 ...

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".

5.0 out of 5 stars OK Go is more amazing than ok! January 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars All is not lost for OK GO January 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Band Quality=Top Notch; Sound Quality=BAD May 17, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overdriven, distorted, unlistenable December 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flaming Lips' Influence Reigns Supreme January 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD
It has been five years since these treadmill dancing gents from Chicago graced us with an album. That's right, Oh No, the album that made them an internet sensation during the summer of 2005 was this band's last release. On a major label, Capitol Records, from the beginning, OK Go seems to have gained some creative freedom since then. With Oh No behind them, OK Go has gone through some major renovations in sound. Although I am typically a big fan of bands experimenting with their sound to find a winning formula that they can call their own, the overhaul performed by OK Go is not necessarily all for the best.

The album opens with the appropriately titled "WTF?" which is exactly what OK Go fans might be saying after hearing the introductory single to OK Go's heavily Flaming Lips influenced reconstruction. The glowing cause of this new sound is none other than the addition of longtime Flaming Lips producer and engineer, Dave Fridmann who has recently contributed to the success of MGMT. The catchy hooks of OK Go's past are not gone, but many of them are lost in a sea of reverb and slap back echoes. With unconventional instrumentation often distorted for added effect accompanying less routine rhythm patterns, the only true discerning sound remaining is Damian Kulash's vocals.

The album's third track, "All Is Not Lost," may not be the best track on the album, but the title tells the truth. OK Go's alternate direction will likely be a disappointment for many of their original fans, but the mix is perfectly put together and the new electronic cornerstones create a very interesting listening experience.

OK Go begins to settle in about halfway through the album.
