Blur’s “Think Tank”: Music review

Unpopular with some due to the absence on most of the album of guitarist Graham Coxon, Blur’s “Think Tank” is actually not a bad album. At times sparse and meandering, there are still some truly outstanding tracks such as the opening “Ambulance” with it’s steady but insistent beat, pulsing two-chord trick, and quirky interludes; and the softer “Out of time” and “Crazy Beat.”
“On The Way To The Club” has some of that mysterious floating ethereal quality that made 1997’s “Blur” so memorable.
Some of the more frenetic jangly tracks like “Good song” and “We’ve Got A File On You” are less memorable, while the detour into blues-based territory on “Brothers And Sisters” is less than successful.
