Think - Variety (1973)
The one and only album from this German band.
Think was a sextet with a lineup of flutes, bass, drums, guitars, percussions, viola, keyboards and English vocals.
This German band has nothing to do with the New Zealand band of the same name I reviewed a couple of weeks ago.
There is two versions of this album. The original version from 1973 and the far superior Garden Of Delight version (CD) from 2002 which also includes two good bonus tracks. As a one-off total break of what I normally do, I am reviewing the fifty-two minutes long 2002 version.
Think plays krautrock with a lot of folk rock influences. The flutes are pretty much everywhere and it creates a warm sound. The viola also creates a warm sound.
The emphasis is still on rock here. Rock with some clear psychedelic influences and music. The music is indeed psychedelic, a bit spaced out and very krautrock.
The songs are all good and bordering to very good. I would actually label this as one of the more hidden gems from the krautrock scene. Hence my rating.
