BLUR Released Mind-Relaxing Album ‘THINK TANK’ 15 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

4 May 2018

Band: BLUR

Album: THINK TANK – their 7th LP

Released: 5 May 2003

NME wrote: “Blur’s creative spark is undimmed, even while their stomach for the pop fight fades. They’ve always known the value of keeping one step ahead, of having a new ‘concept’
for each record, which has always made them objects of suspicion by the rock authenticity police. This time, however, change has been forced on them by the departure of Graham
Coxon. Yet against the odds, ‘Think Tank’ is a success, a record which might not mean much
to The Strokes fans, but after all this time, they still demand to be heard.”

Score: 4/5 – full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: “I had some doubts before this album came out as firing rock/pop guitarist Graham Coxon had left the band at this point. Nonetheless, the smooth, de-stressing and mind-pleasing sonic massage Think Thank was/is just felt delightfully. The record was canned in Morocco and it feels like it happened in a hot, sweaty and relaxing sauna rather than in a proper studio.”

Three Top Tracks: Out Of Time / Brothers And Sisters / Crazy Beat
