CD REVIEW! Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines
Robin Thicke had us all grinding on the dance floors with his catchy summer anthem, Blurred Lines, and his CD of the same name, is not much different. Blurred Lines is a near-perfect summer record, full of good feeling, style to burn and songs demanding repeated listens. Working with top-shelf producers like Pharrell Williams (who’s having a monster 2013), Dr. Luke and Timbaland, the album is a wonderland of insistent beats, infectious hooks and Robin’s sex appeal, suffusing every song like humidity. The CD is best described as a very pleasant ’70s-flavoured numbers with funk guitars, strings and falsetto vocals. Robin sticks to his strengths and keeps the CD light, likable and fun in a manner often reminiscent of Michael Jackson during the disco years.
