[NEW RELEASES] BLURRED LINES
It’s a triumph for Thicke, to be sure - but the tricky part of having success is sustaining it. It’s not something Thicke has managed that well through the years, particularly after scoring with 2007’s smoldering “Lost Without U.” Will “Blurred Lines” end up being a transcendent, but very singular moment for the 36-year-old singer?
With 11 tracks, “Blurred Lines’’ is tightly woven but still manages to bring in different flavors, from electronic dance music to R&B anthems to between-the-sheets grooves. Thicke wrote (or co-wrote) every track, and while it has names such as Dr. Luke and will.i.am as contributors, he remains the star of his own show.
