4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting evolution March 17 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to OK Go for years now, and I must say the evolution of their sound is certainly interesting. After figuring on the Twilight New Moon Soundtrack, they've certainly grown in popularity, and this album might sound darker than the "happy tunes" such as "Get Over It" or "Cinnamon Lips" I got to know them with, but they pull off the indie-rock style solidly.

5.0 out of 5 stars OK Go is more amazing than ok! Jan. 17 2010
By Francie Horton - Published on Amazon.com
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 Jan. 15 2010
By LetsBurnHoles - Published on Amazon.com
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overdriven, distorted, unlistenable Dec 7 2010
By N. Ciasullo - Published on Amazon.com
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 Band Quality=Top Notch; Sound Quality=BAD May 17 2010
By Z. Klotz - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flaming Lips' Influence Reigns Supreme Jan. 17 2010
By J. Loudon - Published on Amazon.com
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. The slow groove of "Skyscrapers" and the contrastingly catchy following track, "White Knuckles," are easily more single worthy than "WTF?" and are definitely the best examples of OK Go blending their experimental side with the addictive tunes that got them to where they are; or at least to where they were five years ago. Of the Blue Colour of the Sky may not have been the best choice of styles for OK Go, but every band is entitled to something new from time to time and once you get past the initial shock, the aftertaste is often pretty delicious.
