Review: Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke

Blurred Lines by Robin ThickeThe inspiration, supposedly, for Blurred Lines is Robin Thicke’s realization that nothing in this world is black or white. So should I applaud him for embracing that conceit completely in this record? Perhaps it’s me yearning for his groovy soulful days, but Blurred Lines really is confused. Well, initially. The title track always struck me as weird. A rhythm was eventually found but, save for a smooth “Top of the World”, a jumpy “Ain’t No Hat 4 That” and a throwback in “4 The Rest of My Life” – dude loves his numbers – it’s mostly the vapid dance-y type, utterly uncharacteristic of him. Also, Blurred Lines about Robin dick, yo. That line is not blurred, as opposed to the boundary between him and Justin Timberlake. Regrettably. [NB] | 3/5
