3 stars While at this point it was clear that PENTANGLE solo projects were the priority of the group's constituents, "Think of Tomorrow" does mark an improvement over the drab "So Early in the Spring" that appeared a year before. The monotonous and "oh so cool" acoustic blues numbers are still around but tempered by a more earth centered spiritual vibe that some might call new age.

The new approach is introduced immediately on "Over the Lonely Mountain", a lovely languid tune about the destruction of our fellow flora and fauna. "Share a Dream" toes the line between a schmaltzy 1990s CLANNAD and a LINDA THOMPSON ballad and ends up more impressive than either, even if "Ever Yes Never No" and "Colour my Paintbook" are cloying. "Straight Ahead" is an uptempo acoustic instrumental that better incorporates the blues and jazz influences than most of the vocal numbers in that style. "A Toss of Golden Hair" and "The Bonny Boy" actually resuscitate these trad tunes better than analogous attempts on the prior couple of disks, thanks to a new found groove that imparts a certain late 20th century ambiance.

Nothing too exciting here, just a modern folk album with most of its progressive aspects emanating from the group members' jazz and blues backgrounds, and a more contemporary take on the future of music and our planet.
