iTunes Editors' Notes

It’s almost too easy to overlook the great music this L.A.-based quartet makes in favor of praising the videos, but Of the Blue Colour of the Sky is an underrated mini-masterpiece, with the guitar-rock outfit morphing on a handful of songs into a Prince-inspired, pop-funk generator. The tunes have teeth, as opener “WTF” well shows, with its hissing keyboard, clanging guitar funk and Damian Kulash’s twitchy, wild-hare falsetto. Is this faux funk, or the real thing? The question becomes moot when the kaleidoscopic pop of “This Too Shall Pass” takes over, and when the joyous, hope-filled “All Is Not Lost” soars with glittery keys and fluttering guitars. The band returns to a silky, funk groove on “Skyscrapers,” and lights a fire with booty-shaking Prince-isms on “White Knuckles.” Blue Colour is one big neon party, and all the band’s amazing videos and wacky concepts (the obscure book that inspired the title, the methodology in creating the artwork) don’t count for much more than icing and confetti. The real star is the music. The “Extra Nice” version contains a whopping amount of bonus material like demos, remixes and an interview with NPR’s Ira Glass.

What happened to the energy? A plodding offering that will disappoint if you hope for the same kind of energetic album as "Ok Go" and "Oh No". Not without merit, but listen with an open mind. Hopefully this will grow on me.......

Hugely inferior to their more energetic offerings!

I was a big OK Go fan until the release of this album. Their first two albums are fresh, catchy, exciting and awesome... Unfortunately, this new album goes the hipster route and substitutes that with some kind of slow, uninteresting mess that we've heard hundreds of times before. I really hope they go back to their strengths for their next one!

OK Go didn't find an audience until 2005, when the band began creating homemade music videos to support its combination of off-kilter guitars, Pixies/Cars fetishism, and straightforward power pop sensibilities. Recognizing the growing popularity of websites like YouTube, the group shot a campy dance video for "A Million Ways," a song from its sophomore album, Oh No. It quickly became the most downloaded music video in history, and OK Go won a Grammy Award for their...
