Album Review

Cerulean retains the glossy, thoroughly pretty ultra-pop feel of Ocean Blue's self-titled debut, but ends up showcasing some of the band's dreamier elements as well. The album comes across as a polished-over combination of the Housemartins and the Cocteau Twins, and it's certainly the most textured and dreamy of the group's releases. Given the band's strict adherence to completely melodic pop, though, that doesn't say a whole lot — their smooth and pretty songs shine through everything they've done, and to say that Cerulean is less immediately accessible than Beneath the Rhythm & Sound only means that its production is a bit more sparkly and washed out. Ocean Blue are, in many respects, masters of soft, gentle pop, and Cerulean does nothing to stray from this skill.

One of the great albums

I've been listening to this album since it first came out in 1991. its still great. its a great album if you like soft acoustic type music,. if you're in the mood to get your ipod and just chill out this is a great album for that. its rythmical and every song is good and should be played together.

If you like The Smiths...this will blow you away!

I first listened to this album after I ordered it, because I was part of that crappy Columbia Music Club (Ya'know...15 tapes for 99 cents...but you have to buy 5 cd's in a year???) Anyhow, I digress...This album was played over and over and over in my CD player for years. I don't think there is a single weak track on the album, no doubt! My favorites on this album are Ballerina, Separate Reality, and Hurricane Amore. I think these guys recorded this album while in the Bahamas, and the laid-back nature of their surroundings has totally translated into this album! I would recommend this album for a cool, crisp Autumn afternoon. It is total ear candy, especially if you love The Smiths!

Wonderful album from a wonderful band

What can I say about The Ocean Blue except that they are one of the most underrated and talented bands out there never getting the attention they really deserve. This album is a true gem. Dream-pop at it's finest with a sound that lays somewhere between Cocteau Twins and The Smiths.
