4 stars This was Think Tree's second album. This one was released by the large indy label Caroline Records, and it seems that they may have had a hand in the production. The album, while still great, lacks a lot of the experimentation that their first album had. But luckily, they made up for that lack with energy and humor.

The humor shows right from the start. Monday A.M. First Thing is a hilarious take on office life. It's a fairly straightforward song, but contains a few sweet synth twists. And later on in the album, Holy Cow! is one of the funniest (and maybe most offensive) songs anywhere.

The pop-ish songs are not bad, with heavy synths and strong rhythms. Everything Is Equal, Eye For Eye nad Rattlsnake all fall into this category.

There are some more experimental tunes as well. Break That Mirror and Mamther are just wonderful.

The whole album is interspersed with short tracks of sounds and samples, which serve to add to the weirdness.

You know, in some ways, I like this even more than the first album.

Evolver | 4/5 |
