This is one of the best albums that I have ever heard. I have to admit, I was not a big Blur fan during the Britpop era-I tended to side more with Oasis' style of music, but this has converted me. The album is simply gorgeous, from the almost tear inducing yet strangely happy Battery in your Leg and Sweet Song, to the politically inclined Out of Time and jump-around inducing Crazy Beat. Good Song is a highlight, which is just beautiful.

This album is different to anything else that I have ever heard, which seems to take its influences from old Blur, Gorrilaz, indie and Morrocan music. Oddly enough, it works fantastically. Dont buy it as a Blur fan, buy it as a music lover.

There are many criticising reviews of think tank. Many fans feel that blur are incomplete without coxon, and that they have abandoned their fanbase. In some ways this is true, however what albarn and co. are are musicians; and musicians foremost. Blur have become a victim of pop culture, and with it comes the problems of over-commercializing and the 'fateful' concept album. However i am one of the few believers that think that this album is a musical canvas waiting to be explored, and it is only when you look deeper that you appreciate it's value. To summarise, want the exciting, brashness of Girls & Boys? look elsewhere. want a great album which could have been made by musical scholars? buy think tank.

Before we pass any judgements on this album we need to remember that it was not made by the same Blur that we have been used to,this was made with out Graham Coxon(for the most part)and when a guitar orientated band looses their guitarist then the sound is bound to be different.
When you first hear it you will no doubt resent the fact that Blur have a completley different sound, this one is more of a European sound than Brit-pop and the lyrics are more mature(no more very big houses in the country). But after a while you realise that the songs get better and better with every listening and it wont be long before this becomes your new favourite album.
This is a great album in its own right and it seems unfair to compare it with some of Blurs earlier work because now that they have lost their guitarist it is true to say that they are in a way a new band.

This is not going to appeal to everyone. Most of the songs are in the Out of Time mould - simple, quiet, bordering on the bland, but strangely mystical. It manages to be excellent background music yet also great for simply listening to.
It's not entirely successful. Morrocan Peoples Revolutionary Bowls Club and Jets feel forced in order to add some upbeat songs (unlike Crazy Beat, which sounds like Song 2 Part 2, and We've Got A File on You, which comes in at just over a minute long and is a perfect embodiment of what a such short song should be: fast, offbeat and exhilarating). The order of the tracks is slightly wrong too: WGAFOY should really have come somewhere in between "Good Song", "On The Way To The Club", Brothers and Sisters and Caravan, which feels dull, as it's too similar to the preceding three tracks without adding anything new. But I can forgive this, if only for the wonderful Good Song and Sweet Song, and the strange and infectious Gene By Gene.
The lyrics are what you'd expect from what is a fairly unusual album. They don't stand out, and fit perfectly with the music, occasionally veering into Radiohead territory (such as "I've got nothing to rely on / I've broken every bone" from the excellent closer, Battery In Your Leg)
A brave and, despite blips, successful album, definitely worth buying.

Think tank definetly grows on you. Quite often with blurs best albums, 13, Blur etc, they grow on you over time, and this is no different.
Think Tank as everyone knows is minus Graham Coxen, probably one of the best Indie Guitarists around, but once you get used to the sound you realise, that maybe Blur are better off without Coxen! That sounds harsh i know but could you imagine the roar of Coxens guitar on some of the gorgeous ballads here? I tell you it would ruin them. However Coxen features on the last track, Battery in your leg where Coxon plays one of the best riffs for blur he's ever done! Damon plays guitar and hes more than up to the task. Dave and Alex play some of the best music you will here them play on a blur record and Albarn's Voice is so so good.
Highlights: Ambulance, Out of time, Good song and On the way to the club.
Buy it and let it Suck you in completely.

Think Tank has is weak points, like the "White Album" or "Kid A" but overall it is loaded with gorgeous songs, subtle production and inspired performances. I am a great Coxon fan and I hope that his departure from the Blur fold is not permanent but even with a minimum of Graham's input this is still a great album which I have listened to every day since I got it.

Eevryone who is in despair over the state of the current music industry should go and treat themself to a copy of Think Tank -- it is the first fresh , effervescent, REAL music to have graced the charts in a long time. Blur ,manage to mix up the raw and exciting edges that Punk stirred up over 25 years ago now whilst adding their own unique touches on tracks like CRazy BEaT that has just the faint echo of The Sex Pistols - but a resounding new edge. 'We've Got A File On You' would be at home with any Clash lovers and there are tunes to match every mood , smooth classy blues in 'Brothers & Sisters, juxtaposing life affirming uplifting melodies like 'Good Song' with the melancholy and contemplative 'Out Of Time', or the divinely reflective sadness of'Caravan'.'Sweet Song' is truly beautiful a sublime star-gazing lullaby. Musically, vocally and lyrically Blur excel on this album with their rare, innovative and eclectic style;absent of any poor tracks.Think Tank is a moment of musical emancipation freed from all the mechanically packaged fodder that usually stalks the charts. This album has reaffirmed my faith in believing that there are some truly authentic musicians out there still trying to break the mould and create something on par with a work of art- true genius
