    As a whole, Blurred Lines is an album full of summer jams that deserve to linger long after the temperature drops.

    Mixed with poppy tracks like "Top of the World," "Pressure" and Michael Jackson meets Hall and Oates ditty "Ain't No Hat 4 That," it's evident that Thicke has created his most fun and mainstream-friendly project yet.

    The album finds the 36-year old singer trying to take advantage of his newfound spotlight by striving to become the full-fledged pop star he's never quite been.

    Complete with “hey hey heys” and a cowbell that ensures that even the most resistant listeners will notice the beat, Blurred Lines is music you dance to. The lyrics are the source of most of the trouble.

    What’s striking is how unambitious most of the rest of the album is, especially the half that’s produced by Mr. Thicke with his longtime production partner Pro-Jay.

    It’s an album that discourages sitting still. Too bad the icky lyrics ruin the mood.

Despite having its up and downs, forget "Give it 2 U" is on the tracklist and you will find out it is a great record. Give some credit to Robin for trying out something different. Blurred Lines will take you to the "R&B" vibe's path, if you're expecting this to sound like his previous work, you shouldn't even bother to listen to Blurred Lines. Expand

My ears pricked up the first time I heard this song and I have been dancing to it ever since. It's fun, addicting and naughty. What's not to love? Expand

Robin Thicke's vocals are good, but he certainly pours it on a little thick at times, which isn't really a good thing. Overall, it's not a bad album, but it's not one I would ever listen to again.

    A lot of these songs sound dated, but not in a fresh way. "Feel Good" sounds like Calvin Harris/Sam Sparro circa 2008. "Give It 2 U" soundsA lot of these songs sound dated, but not in a fresh way. "Feel Good" sounds like Calvin Harris/Sam Sparro circa 2008. "Give It 2 U" sounds straight out of 2003. Other tracks sound like they could be fillers on his previous albums. As massive as Blurred Lines the single was, this album is not a game changer for him. Expand
