Bleu
Redhead (Aware/Columbia)

By: Alex Steininger

Boston-based singer-songwriter Bleu's second album, Redhead, is a slice of power-pop decadence, the kind of record that yesteryear's power-pop stars like Cheap Trick would make if they were brought up in a modern-rock world and striving for that 'hit'. And, though the record is pristine and glossy, the production a flawless affair, Redhead doesn't suffer from it, it gains momentum because of it. It's crunchy, melodic, and easy to sing along with. You can't help but nod your head, tap your feet, and shake your hips to the rhythms, and move your lips to the better-than-sugar melodies. Here is a pop record that proclaims "I Won't Go Hollywood", but sort of does, and in doing so becomes the kid you root for while enjoying every minute of this bubbling delight. I'll give it a B+.
