5.0 out of 5 stars Best blind buy I ever made...... 16 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
It's sad to think that this artist stands absolutely NO chance of ever making it in the UK, given that we already have a manufactured boy "band" by the name of Blue - the spelling difference won't help when it comes to recognition by the British public I fear.
Anyway... picked this up in a second-hand CD store when I was living in the US - it was in an old CD case with no inlay card or anything else to tell me about the CD, but I vaguely remembered reading something about it on a Jellyfish mailing list. Sure enough it was the same album, mentioned because Andy Steurmer (Jellyfish drummer/singer/songwriter) makes a rare co-writing outing on a couple of tracks here, along with Dan Wilson from Semisonic.
Even without the colaborations however this would still be great record - infused with (power) pop sensibility but with a modern edge, it's one of the best new albums I've heard this year. From the ELO-gone-metal hybrid of "Get Up" to the electronica of "Three's a Charm" this is a treat from start to finish.
Check this out if you enjoy a bit of power-pop - Jellyfish, Beatles, Teenage Fanclub, Foo Fighters etc. It's a steal at this price considering it's an inport, so get clicking now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Headroom 30 Nov 2010
By J Mark
Format:Audio CD
I bought this on the back of the splendid LEO album, a great tribute to all things Jeff Lynne related. So how does Bleu hold up on his own? On this evidence very well. If you like power chords and thumping rhythms then this is for you. It's not all crash bang by any means, You Know, I Know, You Know and 3's a Charm are charming ballads, the latter with a clever 'tell me you love me' from a child's spelling computer, displaying Bleu's innocence and longing perfectly. There are actually two versions of this album. The one I have has Ursula Major Ursula Minor (a play on the constellations of similar names) and Sayonara, with those power chords I told you about. So give this a go and enjoy. Not a major seller maybe, the corporates would probably be told where to go fortunately, but a major talent certainly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bleu=Nearly Perfect Power Pop 31 Oct 2003
By Taleatia Vincent-Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This record is just catchy-as-hell, the perfect combination of pop and rock, with plently of fuzzed-out guitars and gorgeous melodies. The guitar riffs are on the heavy side, but are balanced out by great vocals and harmonies. This record is just infectious. I think really anyone would like this, but it's especially a must for anyone who likes Fountains of Wayne, Semisonic, Nada Surf, or any other bands of their ilk. This record also takes the risk of adding the occaisional hair-metal harmonized lead guitar part (as they do on "Could Be Worse"), but it totally works. Really, just buy this record, this guy's got a great voice and superior songwriting skills and the result basically just rules.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bleu = Phat 15 Jun 2005
By R. Cusick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Any fan of power pop needs to purchase this cd. Bleu is the Cheap Trick/Knack of the new millenium. Every song on this thing is great. I got it used on here for about $1.75...total bargain! I haven't stopped listening to it since.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power Pop At It's Finest 9 July 2003
By "bleucrowbooks" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It just doesn't get any better than this. From beginning to end this album is on a mission to rock ! Really focusing on the roots of the eclectic power pop sound, if you listen really hard you pinpoint all the different musical influences in the songs. It's eclectic, but approachable like the Man himself. Bleu is so kind and his music is so Grand.
I hear Beatles, Beach Boys, Elvis Costello, Weezer, Queen, ELO, Shoes, 20/20, Wondermints, maybe some Brendan Benson and more...
I highly recommend this album to anyone looking for some awesome Power Pop... sure to make your summer more fun.... He's even great live! So buy it , and turn it up full volume... And don't forget to listen to the secret tracks!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars UTTER GENIUS...BUT...BUT...THEY CHANGED IT! 25 Jun 2003
By Larry Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First off, Bleu is a genius, and I am a total Bleuhead, the guy makes killer, individual, powerpop, somewhere inbetween Jellyfish and Todd Rundgren. I've been a fan since last summer, when I saw him open for delighful Japanese female duo PuffyAmiYumi in NYC. And, bottom line, pardon the pun, he blew me away!! Sooo, I met my new hero after the show, and he was as cool as I expected; all true powerpop people always are, no ifs, ands or buts. I asked him about a new record + deal (all he had at the show was copies of his 2000 Lunch Records release "Headroom", which is another great disc), so he said yeah, new deal with Aware/Columbia and a record out in September! I'm like, excellent!! Soooo, I see it out, and I get it as a promo. Waiting for the regular release in the stores...nothing. And it's pushed, and pushed, and pushed some more, well into 2003, supposedly out at the end of February, nope, nothing!! Then, come June, it's FINALLY out, woohoo! I pick it up, and I'm like, HUH??? Different cover, altered tracklisting, new catalogue number and switched distribution from Sony proper to Sony Red Ink! They removed 3 tracks, one of them my FAVOURITE, "Sayonara"! Two new Bleu songs, OK, soften the blow a bit, but "Sayonara" is genius, and what adds icing on the cake was the delightful backing harmonies of PuffyAmiYumi themselves!
The other 2 removed songs are "Feet Don't Fail", formerly from "Headroom", so no big deal, and "Ursula Major, Ursula Minor", another goodie. The 2 new songs are the opening "Get Up" and track 3, "That's When I Crash", which is very cool. I guess the best bet is to look for promos of the original "Redhead" (Aware/Columbia/Sony, cat# CK 86280), and get the newly released version. That way, you'll have all the songs.
Bleu is a genius, but they shouldn't have messed with the greatness that is Bleu's "Redhead". Plus, anyone who collaborates with Jellyfish's master Andy Sturmer, as well as PuffyAmiYumi, is cool in my book...go Bleu!

5.0 out of 5 stars ATTENTION PLEASE........FINALLY SOME TALENT 18 Feb 2005
By J. Shaffner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Thank you Bleu, finally some great music with talent, variety and intelligence......about .......time as Stella McCartney said. As a jaded 40-something who experienced some phenomenal monumental musical creativity in the 80s-90s, but suffered from VH1 ennui after 2000, Bleu's Redhead was a much needed zephyr of muse that prevented me from hitching my wagon to "the oldies station". Bleu's fusion of 70's keyboards, 80's orchestrations, 90's guitar riffs and 00's archetypal styling, rejuvenated my ears. Not since XTC's Skylarking and Todd Rundgren's Liars have I been so riveted to an album. Don't just stand there, BUY THIS ALBUM your brain needs some real music....
