6/10 Brian Staff review, 30 April 2009
'Thought Forms' is a CD by erm...Thought Forms who've not actually got it together to think of, or form a title for their (debut?) CD on Invada. It starts of with some drifting feedback, tones, textures and tentative plucking and manipulation of rock style instrumentation that goes on for quite a while in a progressive improv space jam ambient stylee for quite a while and is thoroughly enjoyable and quite meditative. The problem beyond that quite lovely opening piece is that the rest is churning generic post-rock with some over familiar structures and styles. It's not that it's BAD. Or even played poorly. It's just that it's too familiar and a little boring, especially when the vocals come in. I have the same problem with bands like Vessels. To make me happy, post rock has to be feral as fuck and unpredictable or just totally overblown and pompous to the point where it makes me angry. Then bored again. I like Dreamend and the first Explosions album where there's distortion, grit and the drummer sounds like he needs to hit his drums so hard to drown out the ricocheting fuzz smacking him in the face from the guitar amp. And I don't like vocals. Let's dispense with those particular chords shall we. So, not a complete failure but an album that has Brett sneering hatefully is not too good as he already sneers a lot innit. Digipak only

8/10 Richard Customer review,

Although not a masterpiece there is a lot that is very good about the debut cd from Thought Forms. It's difficult to be inventive in the post rock genre, and although some may find this cd a little too 'post rock by numbers' in places, there is enough depth and variety to keep most fans of the genre interested. The opening and closing tracks are excellent examples of the kind of drift drone that Windy & Carl are masters of, and the full on heaviness of 'Mr Steve Has Eaten Your Dog' is easily as good as anything Mogwai have thrown our way since 'Come On Die Young'. Matt Williams (aka Team Brick) lends vocals on 'David, 18' and it's on the final 3 tracks where this cd really takes off. Live the band are superb, filling the room with an intense noise that some may find is lacking from the cd. Volume seems to be key if you want to really enjoy this record, and maybe it's a little too 'clean' in it's overall sound, but there is a ton of promise here, so keep an eye on em... and check out Charlie's solo stuff as Silver Stairs Of Ketchikan which is just as good. The Bristol scene is buzzing again!
