Album Review

Corbin Bleu has grown up a lot since his first album in 2007. All fresh-faced and innocent on the cover of Another Side, Bleu looks like a man on the cover of 2009's Speed of Light, dressed all in black, sporting sculpted arms and wispy facial hair. He has a sound to match his makeover, ditching the sugary Disney Radio pop in favor of a slick, stylish, modern R&B, driven by rhythmic hooks instead of melody. Bleu winds up with an album that plays FutureSex/LoveSounds with the sex removed; he has the shimmering synths, the chilly sound, but he's still singing about puppy love, he's still a teen idol. The same can also be said of Speed of Light as a whole: so much of the album is draped in threads borrowed from Timberlake/Timbaland that it's easy to overlook the lingering elements of Radio Disney, even when the strongest reminder, "Moments That Matter," arrives at the beginning of the record. "Moments That Matter" isn't only the lead single from the album, it was featured in Bleu's feature film Free Style, a reminder of how Bleu's not just a singer, he's a four-quadrant entertainer ready to tackle any medium he can. Speed of Light doesn't quite play up this ready-to-please element of the High School Musical alum. Perhaps wisely, it's intended to make Bleu into a presence on the pop charts outside of any movie or Disney affiliation and even if the attempt doesn't quite work, it's easy to chalk it up to growing pains, not a deficiency in Bleu himself.

Whoa! What happened?

Dude, I didn't even know Corbin had a new album till it showed up on my genius bar! OKAY PEOPLE LISTEN UP I think Disney is discriminating! Just because Corbin Bleu doesn't sound like the normal Disney star they are underexposing his music! I mean, all I saw was a lousy Disney 365 on the SONG Celebrate You ( LOVE that song) Not even anything for the album. I think they like throwing Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers up cause they have normal teen sounds. Hey, I love them too, but Corbin is a lot better than a lot of Disney Stars. I think they should try to tell people more about his new album. I have seen the freaking Hannah Montana Movie commercial 1500 times, but I NEVER saw one thing about this. Wish I had.

Major improvement over his debut album

I have been waiting months for this album. I'm glad to say it was worth the wait. Corbin is much more suited for this type of dance-pop than the type of pop on his debut. I liked his debut album but I felt like that album was thrown together. Maybe I'm wrong but that's just the feeling I get when I listen to it. But listening to Speed of Light, I feel a connection with Corbin and the music. In my opinion, this is the best album released by a "disney star." I hope he gets a lot of success from this album. Hollywood Records better not let this album fail.

It's Good.

Before any of you go to turning a blind eye(or ear in this case) to this because he's affiliated with Disney and HSM fame, give this one a try. It's really pretty good. I'm proud of ya Corbin; keep doing your thing!
