"The same qualities that made Robin Thicke'sBlurred Lines the single the sexy hit of summer — retro-soul grooves and a playful sleaziness — are in full display on Blurred Lines the album (*** out of four). " - Brian Mansfield, USA Today

"Not for nothing has “Blurred Lines” become the most requested and danced to song of this summer. Luckily, its irresistibility and utter lack of pretense set the tone for the whole CD. " - Jim Farber, New York Daily News

"With 11 tracks, "Blurred Lines" is tightly woven but still manages to bring different flavors, from electronic dance music to R&B anthems to between-the-sheets grooves. Thicke wrote or co-wrote every track, and while he enlists Pharrell for "Blurred Lines" and has names like Dr. Luke and as contributors, he remains the star of his own show." - Nekesha Mumbi Moody, The Associated Press

"Robin Thicke sings, writes, produces, plays keyboards and even raps a little on his excellent sixth album, but his greatest talent is projecting bonhomie." - Rob Tannenbaum, Rolling Stone

"Blurred Lines" is also a singer's showcase, driven by the contrast between Thicke's spiraling falsetto and his assured, full-voiced mid-register, employing virtuosity for playful effect." - Keith Harris, Spin

"Robin Thicke’s ready for a little fun outside of the sheets. For Blurred Lines, his sixth solo album, the singer, songwriter and seducer takes listeners to a new musical space, one that differs tremendously from the baby-making playlist he curated last." - Stacy-Ann Ellis, Vibe

"Thicke establishes himself as a neo-soul hit-making force. He's a new-millennium Kool & the Gang on "Get in My Way," a quiet-storm Prince on "4 the Rest of My Life" and a sexed-up Stevie Wonder on "Ain't No Hat 4 That." In other words, Thicke will be rolling out R&B radio hits for months to come." - Glenn Gamboa, Newsday
