Product Description


Compared to the brash pop of Damon Albarn's Gorillaz side project and 1999's overtly emotional 13, Think Tank is a soulful and subtle affair—its tone possibly traceable to the departure of founding member Graham Coxon midway through its recording. There are classic Blur rock moments here, notably "Crazy Beat," which is cut from the same cloth as the classic "Song 2," and the painfully short but brilliant "We've Got a File On You," which sounds like agitprop punks Crass mixed up with a Moroccan snake charmer. But while Albarn still has an ear for a melody, without Coxon's guitars to subvert them, most of these songs sound like the work of a new band. "Caravan"'s sleepy rhythm plods at a camel's pace, while "Gene by Gene" employs cross rhythms to evoke desert images. Blur is now more about textures rather than standard rock rhythms. Some will find their evolution off-putting, but for fans who appreciate a band that refuses to sit still, Think Tank is a rewarding listen. --Caroline Butler

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind over Matter Aug. 4 2012
By Aaron
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My favorite Blur album, it is the only album that can fuse Digital with Analog without a seam showing. Must have for an fan of the continuing evolution of Blur, this is likely the last album to come and a must listen final stage.

I fell in love, I hope you can too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Think Tank-Blur May 30 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After blur's awkward start to the 21st-century (what with losing their guitarist, and the start of the gorillaz), one can only wonder if the brit-pop boys still had it in them. Think Tank is not only one of 2003's best albums, but for me, is blur's best and most creative album. They focused more on experimenting with new and origional sounds (much like with the gorillaz debut album), instead of the finding the next cool guitar rift to please the American audiances. "Out of Time", "Sweet Song", and "Gene by Gene" are among the albums best songs!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not stellar May 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've always appreciated how Blur transforms their identity with each new record and I have no qualms claiming them to be one of my favorite bands of all time. Having listened to Gorillaz and Damon Albarn's awesome Mali Music, I can see where much of the influence of Think Tank comes from. However, Graham Coxon's contributions are a huge part of what defined the sound and allowed for differentiation among the various projects Damon is a part of. Think Tank falls short of being great on first listen and sounds more like a less inspired Gorillaz album. Too many songs plod along with what sounds like a synthetic drum beat - an odd effect given that Blur has a drummer and a very capable one at that.
The album isn't bad. Songs like "Crazy Beat", "We've Got A File on You" evoke the more familiar Blur sound while "Morroccan Peoples Revolutionary Bowls Club" is a nice new direction. But overall Think Tank sounds lazy. Too lazy.
I liked the sonice experimentation of 13. What makes that album worthwhile is how with all the synthesized effect, the true live band nature of Blur shown through and the ablum operates on a gut instinct level. In contrast, this latest effort too often, WAY too often, sounds more like a solo project of musical machinery than a live band.
Still worth a listen though, especially if you like the laid back trippy groove sounds that Gorillaz would sometimes find.
Still, at three years between albums there is almost too much thought in this tank and not enough action.

I have already written about the record, I still like it overall and I think the high points far outway the low ones. For a Blur fan, it's ace.
This is basically a review of the limited edition packaging. Which if you haven't figured it out by now, isn't all that great.
It comes as a 6x6 red cloth bound book with Think Tank and a very small printing of the divers art on the front, in gold. Inside there are just pages of lyrics. No Photos, no great Banksy art, no design at all really. I liken it to the Kid A limited edition which, in my opinion, wasn't as good as the regular version either. Both regular versions (Kid A and Think Tank) have a ton more art work, bigger, brighter, and cheaper. I expected a lot more out of Think Tank's packaging, esp. with Banksy on board doing his great stencil art. I instead got a "rushed job" that was a bit more expensive. Hey, at least the music is still good.
So just a little FYI, in case you can't make up your mind about going for this edition of Think Tank, hope this helped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long-awaited 7th album from British giants Blur June 13 2004
By Sakos
Format:Audio CD
Blur's brilliant guitarist Graham Coxon went on an "indefinite hiatus" in 2002, mid-way through this follow-up to 1999's 13. Recorded in Devon, England and in Marrakesh, Think Tank is an often beautiful, often dark, and always intriguing record. Although many long-time fans were taken aback by this artistic left-turn, most true fans were rewarded with a complex, excellent album. Highlights include Ambulance, Out of Time, Gene by Gene, Sweet Song, and the album closer, Battery in Your Leg, which features Graham Coxon on guitar (the only song on the record that does). Although Jets is grating after a few listens and Crazy Beat is stupid, self-derivative fun, Damon singing directly to Graham during Battery while Coxon plays his aching guitar lines is quite poignant. Give this album multiple listens...you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blur is back. May 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First of all,I'd like to say that I was never a really big fan of Blur. I was really into Gorillaz, in which Damon Albarn is in, and I thought I'd explore some of his earlier work. I ended up loving a lot of Blur's songs. But they stopped coming out with cd's, so I stopped listening to them. Well let me just say that they did a great job with this one, their last, without Mr. Cox, and with Damon on guitar. Great job guys. Well, here's my review. I hope it helps.
Ambulance-(9/10)- A nice opening song with a good rhythm.
Out of time(8/10)-A soothing song with a nice beat.
Crazy Beat-(8-10)-Another great song, with a punky edge.
Good Song(10/10)-It's exactaly what the title says it is.
On the way to the Club-(7/10)-A nice sound, but a bit too slow paced.
Brothers and Sisters(8/10)-Powerful lyrics. It relates to our world at it's current state.
Caravan(7/10)-A nice beat, but a bit slow.
We've got a file on you-(6/10)-A song with almost no lyrics but a catchy phrase.
Morrocan Peoples Revolutionary Bowls Club-(A song with a great beat that just doesn't let you down. Great guitar solo.
Sweet song(8/10)-A song with smooth lyrics which soothe you.
Jets(8/10)-A nice song to listen to in the car, because of its length.
Gene by Gene-(9/10)- A song with a very catchy toon.
Battery in Your Leg-(9/10)-A nice song to end it all.
I hope this helps you make your decision.Blur really is a great band, and the album is really worth it. Thanks for your time.

they have really grown up since parklife, and although the depature of g. coxon is unfortunate, they can still make challenging, thoughtful music.
