Deluxe 'extra nice' two CD edition includes a bonus 14 track CD. 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 treadmill-manned "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".

Amazing music, unfortunately MP3 download sound quality renders it unlistenable. I have thousands of MP3s and this is the only one I have I am not able to listen to without getting a headache due to the extremely distorted sound quality. I complained to Amazon.com and they let me re-download the files, same unlistenable sound every time. Amazon.com tried to satisfy me but the MP3 file quality was evidently engineered by someone who's eardrums were broken years ago. I gave this download 3 stars only because the OK Go music is so great. Save your money for the CD and rip your own MP3s for your portable players.
I saw them live, for the first time, off this tour. Just an all around great band that produces live, energetic, fun music and videos. Probably the best, most intimate show I've ever seen.
So far, 'Of the Blue Colour...' gives enough funk, enough soul, and enough kookiness that keeps me tuned in and blasting through my headphones. This LP is different to what I've heard in the past especially when I was introduced to 'WTF'; which was a great intro to other tracks that could hold their own.
I would say if you're like me and new to Ok Go history, this is a must buy; it sorta reminds me of Beck's Midnight Vultures with a bit Odelay mixed in.
My only complaint is that the marching band version of 'This To Shall Pass' was not on the LP. I like the original version, but the video's version gave me some high school nostalgia that would've made my daily walks 'beyond awesome' instead of 'just awesome'.
