iTunes Review

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.

Glad to see this finally on here....

I love this band and watching them last week at the Fillmore in SF performing the new tunes was a treat. This album rocks out more than the previous two. For the newly initiated OK Go fans, the first two albums will get you more than started. This new addition will round out your cd/itune listening evening. Highlights here are "This Too Shall Pass" and "Back From Kathmandu" (they played this at the show). For the veteran fan, it's all good with this album. Get it!

Great music... Ok sound quality

I agree with the other reviewer about the sound quality, especially on This Too Shall Pass, the song I purchased and then wanted to return. Great song, and I will repurchase if it gets fixed, but listen carefully to the sample on good headphones and see if it sounds distorted to you. I'm hoping it's an error and not what OkGo intended, because I don't recall being annoyed by it when I've heard this song in other placed. This recording is nails on a chalkboard for me (dated reference, I know.) I'll check back later and hope to hear a cleaner version, which I will then repurchase.

Excellent Listen!

This album is a wonderful evolution. It is OK GO's best by far- although I have thouroughly enjoyed their previous albums as well. Each song has its own pace, sound, and feel- but they all fit together well. As has been said many times already- the Prince vibe is pretty heavy (especially on End Love, and White Knuckles) in a good way. There are a lot of unique percussion sounds throughout, which keeps things interesting. The lyrics are sharp, and evoke a variety of emotions. You can find a song to fit any mood, and I find it all very enjoyable. Highly recommend.

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 follow-up subsequent video -- this...
