CD Reviews

Monday P.M. Third Thing...
Christine F. Stewart | Redmond, WA USA | 06/10/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Think Tree's music is really unusual, but it's also spectacularly surreal and listenable. Like The Idea is my second favorite album (behind 8:13, which very, very sadly isn't in print) and the last released by the band before their collapse. The music and odd, jarring rhythms will draw you in, and the odd but intriguing turns of phrase will stick in your mind like porcupine quills."
One of the most amazingly eclectic Cds ever.

"This, the second CD from the Boston freaks, is a compelling piece of brilliance. It spans every bridge concievable, from Zappa-esque country in "Rattlesnake", to techno-funk in "Eye For Eye". The musical mastery displayed on Like The Idea is greatly improved from their first release, Eight/ Thirteen, whose song "Hire a Bird" recieved moderate airplay on Boston alternative radio. Think Tree disbanded and reformed in two different bands, Count Zero, whose innovative album, "Affluenza" boasts a German techno version of Joni Mitchell's "Free Man in Paris", and the other band being El Dopa, fronted by Think Tree keyboardist Krishna. El Dopa is predictable and repetitive. Think Tree remains one of the great undiscovered bands of the 90's."
