Product Description

Product Description

FOLLOWING THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED 2012 ALBUM ALL THE WARS, THE PINEAPPLE THIEF RETURN WITH THEIR NEW ALBUM MAGNOLIA ON 15TH SEPTEMBER VIA KSCOPE. Magnolia will be released as a 2-Disc Deluxe media book with 24 page booklet. The second disc features 2 exclusive bonus tracks and 4 acoustic versions of album tracks. Anthemic, catchy and straight from the heart, Magnolia represents the ultimate culmination of songwriter and guitarist Bruce Soord's ongoing quest to expand their musical horizons beyond the progressive sphere. With a sound more akin to Biffy Clyro and Muse, Magnolia has all the potential to bring The Pineapple Thief to the masses, having created a devastating collection of 12 beautifully crafted songs, cramming a vast array of emotional shades and inspirational ideas into its 47 mesmerising minutes. Veering from the strident opening assault of 'Simple As That', due to be released as the first single, through to the cinematic sweep of the closing track 'Bond'. Magnolia was recorded at Snap Studios and mixed at Strongroom Studios in London, by Adam Noble, whose previous work includes albums from Placebo, Guillemots, Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams and Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly. Formed in 1999 by founder and chief songwriter Bruce Soord The Pineapple Thief have continued to evolve and refine their sound ever since and they're seen by many as one of the most interesting and innovative rock bands the UK have produced in recent years. Recent albums like Someone Here Is Missing (2010) and All The Wars (2012) have made their reputation and fan base stronger, starting to gather interest from a wider spectrum of alternative rock followers. Bruce Soord also collaborates with other Kscope artists, joining forces with Katatonia's Jonas Renske on the 2013 Wisdom Of Crowds project and joining Katatonia on their recent Dethroned & Uncrowned Unplugged acoustic European tour. The Pineapple Thief are due to tour the UK & Europe later in 2014. The Pineapple Thief / All The Wars media comments: "...elegant, sophisticated work..." / "...moody and meaningful, introspective and universal... PROG "Ambitious British indie-rock with tunes to spare" TOTAL GUITAR "prog stalwarts deliver the goods" - KKKK Kerrang! "...the sound of a band reaching the height of their powers" CLASSIC ROCK "an album of Muse-like, slow burning guitar anthems" - ROCKSOUND

This is yet another album packed full of power and emotion. It has been written by a guy who is much like you and I really, But, what sets him apart, is the fact that he is bursting with an artistic desire that needs to be addressed and unleashed. What is without doubt is that Bruce Soord puts his heart and soul into every release.
The songs themselves, for me, seem to reflect that whole situation. They are passionate, they are thankful for the support of those around him. But at the same time they can be almost apologetic for the being the way that he is.
Musically the album seems to kick on from where ‘All the Wars’ left off. Two glorious and rocky opening songs set forth the proceedings.
But from the moment you get to the third track ‘Don’t Tell Me’ and move through to ‘A Loneliness’ the album really comes into its own. You are then transported through some of the most powerful and dramatic music I have heard from TPT to date.
The album closes with its quite stunning finale, the incredibly powerful ‘Bond’ which just simply pulls you in all directions.
In terms of execution and clarity ‘Magnolia’ is exceptional. The musicians involved, the production, the string arrangements are all to the highest standard. And for the first time on a TPT album I hear some really clear harmonies. This whole package is simply stunning both visually and aurally. I have no hesitation in giving Magnolia five stars.
For those who feel the need to pigeon hole albums, The Pineapple Thief’s early records seemed to fit nicely with fans of progressive rock. Their later albums however have not lost that ‘progressive’ feel entirely; rather, they have added an extra edge and uniqueness to them.
One constant throughout all their albums though is the lyrics.

A superb album from The Pineapple Thief, for me, their best effort to date. The Pineapple Thief have constructed their own distinctive sound that builds on all their previous albums perfectly, taking the very best sounds from their previous albums and creating an amalgamation of musical styles.

The album sounds beautiful on 180gram vinyl too, it really makes the most of the depth of musical variation on the album, from strings to trance sounds.

This is possibly the best thing The Pineapple Thief have done, although I don't think it quite scales the heights of the Wisdom of Crowds project with Jonas Renkse which is truly exceptional.

This album shows that the long, prog album tracks of old are not missed and the 3 to 4 minute single does the job perfectly well.

Highlights? Alone at Sea and The One You Left To Die are, in my opinion, as good as anything the band has produced to date.

In short, an excellent album and I hope it lifts the bands profile so that they get the success they deserve.

The new album from the magnificent pineapple thief and it continues from where the previous album All The Wars left off. They are offered described as s prog band , there are elements to their songs which could be described as prog, but I wouldn't let that label put you off. Some of the songs are shorter in length . If you can get hold of the limited edition which has a extra disc which adds an acoustic cd of versions of the songs on the album . If I was being ultra picky think I prefer their album someone here is missing . Still worth 5 stars though

I've had this album now for a couple of weeks but hung back from reviewing it till i had given it enough time to sink in , thats the thing you see , you need to give each "Thief" album the time to grow , to get used to the subtle nuances & complexity , i had lost interest slightly in Pineapple Thief prior to this album , i dont know why but their last couple of albums left me a bit cold & indifferent , & then they unleash this masterpiece , 12 tracks & 12 superb , beautiful pieces of music that fit together like a jigsaw , this cd begs to be played as a whole though , only 46 minutes but its 46 excellent minutes & in my opinion their most cohesive album since 12 Storys Down , buy without hesitation

A beautiful album, haunting lyrics with perfect musicianship - perfect bite sized chunks of prog in pop length tracks.
Better than All the Wars (still a 4* album), and equally as good as Someone Here is Missing - possibly my favourite album from this band.

This album blew me away. He is without doubt a fantastic singer songwriter. From the intro of Simple As That to the quite dark'n'heavy The One You Left To Die to the heart aching, goosebumps inducing A Loneliness & ending with a brilliant Bond. It's a journey of his soul.. If you are a Pineapple Thief fan, you will not be disappointed!
