Pineapple Thief's Latest
Originally posted on September 5, 2008
Somerset, England’s alt-prog rock band The Pineapple Thief quietly sneaks up on you and then knocks you out with terrific music. They have perfected a sound that has sophisticated musical values and great ideas—even some cool songs with a 7/4 meter. They have packed the lyrics with new century angst and despair. So who needs happy all the time?
Their latest album Tightly Unwound (K-Scope) has all those qualities mentioned above. It deserves any accolades it may get, and I hope it gets them. The lead guitarist has a very nice sound. The whole thing comes off as musically exceptional and emotionally powerful. More of this, please!!
