The eagerly anticipated 5th album from The Pineapple Thief is at last with us and the quality of the album more than justifies the wait. This is a stunning set of songs that exemplifies the melodious quality of the arrangements and performance of the main songwriter Bruce Soord. Although the album is a little heavier in places than the last album, “10 Stories Down”, it is still instantly recognisable for its trademark sonic canvases of guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals, once again supplemented by some great violin.
"Variations on a Dream" is the third album by The Pineapple Thief, released in 2003. After the great success of the last album 137 her is a stunning set of new songs. The idea was to push the melody, arrangement and performance further so that this new album was a progression from the last. Lush orchestral arrangements sit alongside the traditional sonic canvases of guitars, bass, vocals, Mellotrons, Hammonds, Prophet-5s and Fender Rhodes. Bruce Soord’s tell tale guitar work has never been so cutting with some strident soloing amongst the memorable songs, and especially on the epic.
Someone Here Is Missing is the follow up to Tightly Unwound, the critically acclaimed album which launched the Kscope label In April 2008. Bruce Soord, the band’s frontman has described it as ‘a record of dark edges, full of love and regret, my life in the last eighteen months pretty much.’ The nine tracks mark another step forward in the band’s progression, as Bruce’s songwriting continues to evolve and the band grow ever tighter.
137 is the second album of the British band The Pineapple Thief. The music can be described best as a blend of alternative, neo-progressive and indie rock. The best songs on 137 are Kid Chameleon and the epic piece PVS.
CYCLOPS are proud to present the sixth studio album from The Pineapple Thief. The first five tracks are a stunning set of songs that prove the quality of the writing of the main songwriter Bruce Soord, who also gives us more displays of his great guitar work.
