Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines is a feel good record that will have everyone around you dancing. It evokes musical styles of the 1970s disco era and is hella charming. I’m not just talking about the song Blurred Lines but the actual album released this past Tuesday. I always compared Robin Thicke to Michael Bublé, a more soulful version at that. A great crooner whose image you can’t quite pinpoint. With this album, he comes off as the bad boy version of Bublé and it works as a whole.
What I didn’t know going in was that Thicke had so many albums under his belt. I was aware of The Evolution of Robin Thicke because of Lost Without U, which was a pretty big hit. Then he sort of just fell of the map for me. I was aware that he was still making music but not releasing three albums since 2006. Blurred Lines is Thicke’s fifth official studio album and his shortest with eleven tracks. While he writes most of the songs on the album, he receives some help from fellow writers Pharrell, Timbaland, and even from his father, actor Alan Thicke.
