2 stars Rarely have I been this disappointed with a group of the Cuneiform label stable. Thinking Plague is made from great musicians who apparently are very knowledgeable and gifted as is the standard at Cuneiform.

The trouble is that the Thinking Plague seems to be making complex music for the sake of making complex music (much like a certain artistic movement did Art for Art's sake), taking away all sense in the Musical Oeuvre (in terms of sense) but this does not mean that there is no creativity. One thing is certain, though: Bjork must've heard this band before starting her solo career because there are many elements present in this album and the earlier ones that one can detect throughout Bjork's career.

The people used to reading my reviews know that I enjoy listening to elaborated and dark/obscure stuffbut here,I think that Thinking Plague should only please progheads with an acute taste for non-sensical and difficult music. And I seem to rate myself out of that category....... This should warn you about this band.
