Think Tank, the other Blur album that splits fans apart. If you get past a couple of stinkers here and there, it's a brilliant album, in my opinion.

01. Out of Time
02. Ambulance
03. Caravan
04. Good Song
05. Sweet Song

I've been looking forward to this one. I've always loved Think Tank, and choosing the tracks was as hard as I expected. (I.e., very)

1. Ambulance
2. Out of Time
3. Caravan
4. On The Way To The Club
5. And.......... Jets.

I feel I need to justify Jets in particular as it seems to be hated. That rhythmn section is incredible. So sharp, tight, and funky. And Mike's Sax solo is superb. This should really be treated as an instrumental, admittedly the lyrics probably took 2 minutes to write, but it's not about that; it's all about the musicianship. Alex in particular owns this song.

This is easy, cos it's a monumental task trying to find 5 good songs on here. 4 pick themselves........the 5th is a stab in the dark as the rest of it - IMO of course :D - is utter garbage.

1. Out of Time
2. Caravan
3. Sweet Song
4. Good Song
5. On My Way To The Club

Out of Time
Sweet Song (I'd love to see this live with Graham)
Ambulance (out of all the TT songs, I'd love to see Graham work on this the most - feedback, the lot)
Caravan
Brothers & Sisters

only along with TGE does TT have "bad tracks", Gene by Gene could of been really good, but with the creaking gate...what made them pick Fatboy Slim I don't know. Overall it really is a a great album, it just lacks something to make it greater

Moroccan Peoples Revolutionary Bowls Club? Interesting. You're on your own there at the moment.

Moroccan Peoples Revolutionary Bowls Club is bside fodder, it's not offensive to the ear or anything,just filler. i've never got the fuss about OTWTTC either
