Review by Greger
4 stars THINKING PLAGUE is one of the most progressive bands I know about. They are always balancing on the edge between extremely technical musicianship and total madness, blending Art Rock, Avant Garde, Jazz, experimental Progressive Rock and RIO. There aren't many bands that can equal them when it comes to originality. Their music is a blend between 5UU'S, ART BEARS, GENTLE GIANT, HENRY COW, KING CRIMSON, SLAPP HAPPY, U TOTEM and FRANK ZAPPA. THINKING PLAGUE's first two LPs on their own Endemic label: "-A Thinking Plague" (1984) and "Moonsongs" (1986) have been out of print for quite a time, but now they're finally re-mastered and released on one CD. The sound quality and the musicianship are as good as on the following releases "In This Life" (1989) and "In Extremis" (1998). This is a great opportunity to finally get these albums and only pay for one CD. The music is highly recommended if you're into intricate progressive rock.
