Description

Double white vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release, the fourth studio album from the popsters led by Ryan Tedder. Oh My My is the follow-up to the band’s 2013 album Native. Talking about the album to Wonderland Magazine, Tedder spoke about what fans could expect: “Everything – you could do an entire album on a laptop these days, and some of the biggest records are all electronic laptop driven, and there’s a lot of humanity, I think, missing in radio. And so we wanted to make sure that you could actually hear the human beings and the actual instruments that are in the actual songs, so that’s the last thing I’ll say. It’s new and very modern but there’s still a big dose of humanity in it because you can actually hear the players.” In a later interview with Billboard, Tedder revealed that the album took 18 months to record, which was “the longest amount of time [the band had] ever spent on one project[…]We did a lot of living in the last four years – there was a lot to write about.”

On Ringo Starr’s 1973 ditty “Oh My My,” the Beatle challenged listeners with “Can you move? Can you slide? You can boogie if you try.” On OneRepublic’s fourth outing of the same name, there’s plenty of boogie to inspire even the heaviest of hearts. The band hasn’t broken stride following its 2013 hit album Native — which went platinum in eight countries and spawned no less than six hit singles — continuing an unstoppable flow of bright anthems designed to comfort and uplift. The Native world tour would set the stage for the creation of Oh My My, which was written and recorded all over the globe. London, Sao Paolo, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, Mexico City, Sydney, Reykjavik, Milan, Stockholm, Istanbul, Toronto, Jerusalem, and Moscow were just some of the locales where Oh My My came to life, the settings inspiring Ryan Tedder and the band — Zach Filkins, Drew Brown, Brent Kutzle, and Eddie Fisher — as much as the fans they met on the journey. Tedder’s knack for synthesizing the sounds of whatever is popular at the moment and turning them into huge, easily digestible tunes seems to have only improved. Much like Sia, Tedder seemingly snaps his fingers and hits appear, so many that they can afford to share them with other artists or keep them for their own projects. As such, Oh My My continues the trend of OneRepublic albums sounding like singles collections rather than one cohesive concept. It’s a grand pop album from a proficient rock band, similar to contemporaneous albums by Coldplay, Maroon 5, Kaiser Chiefs, and Paper Route. As usual, if a couple songs were relegated to the bonus deluxe version, the overall flow of the album would be much stronger. However, the sheer number of highlights remains undeniable. “Kids” might be the greatest song that Tedder has penned thus far (apologies, “Counting Stars”), delivering an almost unbearably rousing chorus that overwhelms with its power and joy. “Future Looks Good” sparkles with embellishments found on Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams, while “Oh My My” struts with a funky disco bassline provided by French duo Cassius. Other notable guests include Santigold on “NbHD” and one of Tedder’s biggest inspirations, Peter Gabriel, on the ’80s synth jam “A.I.” There are only a few breaks in the boogie, with drama provided by a choir on the Sam Smith-channeling “Choke” and the airy piano ballad “Fingertips,” which features the xx’s Romy Madley Croft. Overall, Oh My My is another solid record from a group led by one of the best songwriters of a generation. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
