Album Review

The Like's debut album, Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking?, has nothing to do with their teenage counterparts and a little something do with their famous fathers. It's only natural that one would consider the work of Mitchell Froom, Pete Thomas, and Tony Berg while sizing up the dream pop-influenced sound of the Like. However, this band delivers an impressive 13-song set that's reliably original and streamlined. Vocalist Z Berg sounds older and wiser than her youthful years, a near vocal ringer for Harriet Wheeler and Chrissie Hynde. Her (and the band's) girlish confidence is both endearing and smart. The punk strands in "What I Say and What I Mean" and the layered acoustic guitars and lush harmonies of "Once Things Look Up" capture the Like's maturer presentation. Their range of influences are fluidly spread throughout, particularly on the earthy indie rock highlights of "Too Late" and "We Are Lost." "The One" and "Mrs. Actually," two daydreamy, brokenhearted moments, add to the shimmering beautiful canvas of Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking? Producer Wendy Melvoin had the right touch with this album, empowering the Like to feel good about standing apart from everything else.

Customer Reviews

A very Pleasant Wait

The opening throbbing of the bassline in June Gloom the first track off The Like’s first album Are You Thinking What I’m Thinking, prepares you something heavier than Z Berg’s ethereal crooning. But deceptive appearances are what The Like are all about. The three Californian gamines (average age 19), who look like they can barely lift their instruments, play with an intense quietness, making this CD a fascinating, and mellow debut. Do not be scared away by the rather too cute fawn they use on the cover of the album. That is the one false step that the trio makes on the entire CD. Waiting seems to be a recurring theme (Waves that Never Break, Falling Away, and the aptly named Waiting all refer to it), and indeed the whole album has a breathless expectant quality to it. Even though what they are waiting for never seems to quite arrive, it is enjoyable just to sit and wait with them.

Can't Say Enough

The entire album, top to bottom, is tremendous. I can't stop listening to it, and don't want to. The most impressive debut I've seen in a long time. The band is young, but certainly don't sound it - the music and lyrics are impressively tight. Major kudos.

Love The Like

I absolutely love them! Z's voice is incredible, this is quality music. they might not be super famous (yet) but they have the potential. I absolutely love it, this CD is definately worth 9.99 if not more. So stop friggin wasting your money on lindsay lohan!
