Blurred lines is right.
Obviously everyone is raving about the title track, Blurred Lines, and given the mileage it got from the recent Miley Cyrus twerking stunt on stage, the song is now a classic.
Before that, there was the issue of copyright, where some people felt Thicke ripped off the song from a Marvin Gaye classic.
Unlike his other hits Lost Without You or Brand New Jones, Blurred Lines has seemingly made the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Now a look at the rest of the album.
Off the the success of Blurred Lines you can tell Thicke decided to turn the album into that poppy early Seventies sound. You almost feel like the music is trapped in a time capsule that an older crowd and old souls will relate to.
It is almost the music Gaye and his Motown peers would be proud of, although it has a slight twist of modernity.
You will fall in love with fast tracks like Ooo La La and Top of the World which have club hit potential. That said, Thicke fans will not be impressed by the saturation of these fast tracks at the expense of the ballads we have come to know him for.
One song, 4 The Rest of My Life, is probably the remedy, but comes a little too late in the album.
Nothing here takes you back to songs like Just Right, Teach U A Lesson or Can You Believe? which were all classic R&B songs.
Fans know that almost every one of his albums comes with a feature from Lil’ Wayne where they do some deep songs about social injustices.
There is no Wayne on this album, instead there is Kendrick Lamar who somehow has Thicke singing bluntly about his penis.
The magic is still there, but it is just not the same as before. – Munya Vomo
