Album Review

Internet sensations have a short shelf life, which makes OK Go’s extended break after the treadmill-jumping clip for “Here It Goes Again” went viral in 2006 somewhat admirable. They resisted the temptation to knock out another collection of power pop and instead hibernated for a few years, eventually teaming up with Dave Fridmann — a former member of Mercury Rev best known for his production work with the Flaming Lips — with the intention of reinvention, resulting in the mildly bewildering Of the Blue Colour of the Sky.

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 follow-up subsequent video -- this...
