Blue is an eclectic electronic band that walks across a wide variety of musical styles, yet still manages to remain cohesive enough to avoid alienating its listenership with its diverse electronic background. As with Chemlab, Blue breaks up its music with short soundbits between longer tracks. As a result, in the first half of the album, the odd numbered tracks are more upbeat and percussive, and the even numbered tracks are more ambient and layered. Just after the midpoint of the album, the tracks migrate to a moderate length and sort of munge together the Dub and Ambient styles into a homogeneous mix. The music is calculatingly minimal, with a slow meter, just perfect for home listening. Stylistically, Blue fits well into the intelligent dance music genre, mostly because they hybridize a myriad of styles without resorting to mindless repetition.
