4 stars This was the first of the two albums by the short lived Boston band Think Tree. Released on LP, cassette and CD, the digital version had a bonus track, a live recording of The Word.

Dominated by two synthesizer/sampler players and an electronic percussionist, Think Tree had a style reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails (with whom they toured at one time), but in my opinion with more creativity and soul. Singer Peter Moore, a brilliant lyricist at times, would create characters to perform his songs, giving many of them a tongue in cheek feeling. Will Ragano's guitar's would bring the sometimes spacey, sometimes heavy synths and samples down to earth, helping to give the band an organic sound amid the electricity.

But the star are the synths and samples, Krishna Venkatesh and Paul Lanctot were brilliant sound manipulators, that give the music an eerie feeling like nothing else you've heard.
