Ooh, the new Blur album, "Think Tank" is gorgeous - a real come-down album, all mellow mellotron and wracked vocals. Not a million miles away from their last album, "13", but more tuneful. It's very cohesive. Not sure if there are any big hit singles on it - the boys have clearly moved on from their chirpy-chappy Britpop days. On first listen, the stand-out track for me is the appropriately-titled "Sweet Song". And wait till you hear the magnificent drum programming on "Gene By Gene". The album is not released till the 5th of May, but - hurrah - someone's leaked it.
