Final Thoughts:

I first heard of OK Go, like most people, through their song Here It Goes Again, I’ve been an avid fan ever since. Sure their stuff hasn’t been show-stopping, but they manage to pull off one thing a lot of artists have a very hard time doing: consistency. Every OK Go album I’ve listened to after their album Oh No has had at least a few solid tracks on it that I’m happy to have show up on my shuffle. Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky threw me off initially, I was used to the more Indie Rock sound from Oh No, so the pop/synth heavy album took me a bit to warm up to. It’s one of those albums that has became really familiar to me without ever wearing out its welcome. Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky is a solid addition to OK Go’s already impressive discography, any fan will be pleased with what they hear on this release.
