Think - We'll Give You A Buzz (1976)

The one and only album from this New Zealand band.

Think was a quintet with a lineup of keyboards, bass, drums, guitars and vocals.

New Zealand is not a prominent country when it comes to rock and pop bands. This incredible beautiful country has always been on the wrong side of the world and have had their own life and culture. The 1960s and the 1970s largely passed them by.

But there are exceptions to this rule. Think is one of them.

This album has a colourful cover (which I was totally sold on) and some colourful music too. Take The Beatles, add some Led Zeppelin and some Yes. Add other English symphonic prog bands like Cressida, Fantasy and some Procol Harum too. That is when you get this album.

The music is mostly progressive rock with some heavy guitars and vocals now and then. This forty minutes long album has both some heavy rockers and some more melancholic songs.

And this album gives the listener a buzz indeed. No need to complain to the Trading Standards here. This is also a good album which delivers on a lot of different levels. It does give the listener a buzz, indeed. Check out this album and get a buzz.
