Looking like a cross between a scene-queen from London's swingin' '60s and C-3PO, New York dance-pop diva-to-be Vitamin C seems a little chilly peering at us from the cover of her self-titled debut. But the sun-drenched alterna-teen dreams on the former Eve's Plum singer's coming-out party bubble forth with a vivacity that makes Britney Spears sound like Rammstein with a chest cold. Leading with the dancehall-tinged up-with-people pop of "Smile," VITAMIN C runs through a market-tested mix of dance-pop, hip-hop, and alt-rock hybrids that could score with Backstreet Boys and Breeders fans alike. Referencing alt-pop history, Ms. C offers a '90s revision of "I Got You" by New Zealand new wavers Split Enz, while "About Last Night" (co-written with Robbie Neville) samples the Clash's "Magnificent Seven." But the best tune here is "Me, Myself and I," which dips into the sound and spirit of Smash Mouth's "Walkin' on the Sun" for a tasty nugget of effortless ear candy.
