Acumen - Think

By: home
Posted in: Review

This band has a great knack for vocal melodies, layering them with a wide variety of techniques, complete with (at times) somewhat overwrought pontifications and "lonely boy searching for an answer" themes. For some reason, musically, I'm reminded of the Moody Blues, albeit with a much heavier folk influence. The great Moog (or one of its many offspring) even turns in a nice solo on "All I Know." Standout cut is "Big Out West," which seems to realize it has a great vocal chorus hook and proceeds to repeat it over and over. --Bryan Baker, GAJOOB #9, 1994
