Blur, Think Tank (2003)
My favourite Blur album. That might be the wrong answer – but I don’t think so. I even like that it has the worst Blur song (maybe even the worst song by anyone) on it. I like albums that are great but have one giant shocking shirtbird fuckout of a song on them. It reinforces the good. In this case I’m talking, of course, about Crazy Beat. Ew! But maybe I like Think Tank a lot because it links so well to all the other Damon Albarn material – it is, in that sense, more an Albarn solo album than a Blur album maybe. At any rate it’s still my favourite album to carry the Blur name. And due to the reissues it’s nice to have it – shiny and new – on vinyl at last.
