Product Description

Product Description

A Strictly Limited Edition of the Former UK #1 Album that features Special Packaging (Burgundy Linen Hardback Book with Gold Embossment) and Live Versions of Four "Think Tank" Tracks that were Recorded at MTV Studios.

Amazon.ca

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

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.

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.

A Blur album without Graham Coxon: how sad is that? This was a guitarist who not only thought outside the box but also put his weird inclinations into popular context when Blur was flying high in the 90's. There is no other guitarist like him. He may not be flashy, but he is one-of-a-kind.
Left to its own devices, Think Tank becomes a mobile for songwriter/vocalist Damon Albarn's showboating at worst. With a slew of producers (Fatboy Slim and William Orbit, just to name a few) and no true collaborator to bounce ideas off of, Think Tank sort of becomes an unfocused playground for Albarn. And like most hyperactive kids, activity on the playground gets a little out of hand.
The album makes a strikingly good first impression with Ambulance and the single Out of Time. These display how Albarn still has a good grip on his melancholy. But by the time we get to Crazy Beat, the album starts to collapse because it hasn't decided on a direction. On The Way To The Club has a great refrain, but the song was half-written as the noddling that closes out the track suggests. Brothers and Sisters, while irresistably groovy, suffers from the same vice: an idea that never went past the sketching process. Moroccan Peoples Revolutionary Bowls Club is just plain silly and void of substance. Jets doesn't feel like a good idea on any day of the week. Albarn just sings "jets are like comets at sunset" over and over while Alex James, David Rountree, and the saxophonist vamp the same pattern just as many times.
And you would think that Albarn would know better than to waste his talents like this. But the fact is, he must have been so drunk on his seniority when Coxon left that he just started making noise and hardly ever stopped.

This is by far the most controversial Blur album yet made. Half of the fans think it's the best, pure genuis. The other half thinks Blur needs to go to hell.
I'm not going to tell you what you'll think of this album, just what I think. I think this is one of their best(Next to 13), but you may think it sucks.
This CD is full of beauty. "Out of Time" is my favorite Blur song. Period. It is an awesome song that is just too true.
Although some didn't like "Jets", I think it is one of the better. So what if it has a freaking sax solo? Why does that even matter? Just because its lyrics don't make any sense is no reason to hate it.
I half agree with the criticisms on "Crazy Beat", people saying that it's an old ripoff of "Song 2" and "B.L.U.R.E.M.I", and I admit that is what it sounds like. But come on people, ALL bands do that at least once or twice. I mean look at Linkin Park. They just play the same song over and over with different lyrics. I think people are blowing it totally out of proportion. So they copied their own song. That's what bands do when they get hit songs. And really, everyone makes mistakes. Just because they're rock stars doesn't mean they're gods.
1. Ambulance: 5/5
Really good song. Good starting song, a ramp up point for the rest of the album
2. Out of Time: 5/5
Best song on the album. Beautiful and poetic and perfect in every way. If anything, get the album for this song, even if you hate the rest.
3. Crazy Beat: 3.5/5
Well it's unoriginal, but it's still better than what most bands can come up with.
4. Good Song: 4.5/5
It's a good song, just not really my favorite on the album. I don't really know why, it just isn't.
5. On the Way to the Club: 5/5
Really good song.
