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.

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.

Had the opportunity to support Think Tree with my band just after they had their EP (what? EP, children) Eight/Thirteen out. From the late 90s onwards old analog synths became all the rage, but to see a BAND with TWO synthesizer-players on stage in the early 90s was absolutely rare (one had a Roland Jupiter 8! Drool!) Wait, this should not turn into a gear-geek review; Think Tree was as fresh and inventive as, well...not many bands I can remember from the late 80s/early 90s. I think Eight/Thirteen is better than Like The Idea (I think all the radio-interludes are breaking the pace & I dislike Think Tree going too far into "Prince"-territory like on "Eye for eye".) But. "A Court Jester Named Sa-Sa" with it's ecstatic end-sequence (That synth! Those chords!) is a song everybody should here once in their lifetime. You'll want to hear it twice. A great band from, in my opinion, a quite tame period for experimental pop. Worth checking out!
