Biography

The Pineapple Thief was formed by Bruce Soord, in 1999. Initially a solo studio project, the band has grown into a globally gigging outfit, with 7 albums under their belt and an ever increasing army of fans throughout the world. The band name is derived from an obscure American film called Eve’s Bayou, in which there is a scene where a young girl steals a pineapple (Scene 29 on the DVD ...

I have had mixed emotions about Pineapple Thiefs last few albums (i.e. Little Man, What we have sown and Tightly wound). In my honest opinion, they weren't played on my Sound system as much as I would have liked because they didnt strike me like their earlier output. I found the band were trying to be too clever for their own good by including too many Special effects that did not particularly stand out. Another reason was because of the strong output over the same period from other bands such as Riverside, Demians, Frost* etc etc that are in the same music bracket. However, Someone here is missing is a step in the right direction. Superb songwriting and melodic harmonious vocals are what make Pineapple Thief stand out. Pineapple Thief have often been compared to Porcupine Tree. The opening two tracks: Nothin at best AND Wake up the dead, especially, wouldn't sound out of place on "The Incident" (Porcupine Tree's last release). I had, like many Tree fans, big expectations of that album, but was let down and in the end, the song "Flicker" was the only highlight for me. This album puts the Incident to shame. Great to see there are no filler songs here. Each song captivates you in a different way. It still possesses that melancholic feel throughout but rather being on the gloomy sad, it sounds more angry, hence the heavier vibe apart from the touching Barely breathing which is based around the Acoustic guitar and piano with a strings arrangement background. Listening to this album as I write, I sometimes wonder if Pineapple Thiefs music should be tagged solely in the Progressive Rock genre as it can be misleading. Yes I know they have released 3 or 4 songs over 15 minutes long in the past and also the comparisons to Porcupine Tree and Radiohead. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Visceral June 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I am so glad Pandora exists. Not the world of James Cameron's "Avatar," but the online radio station. Thanks to it, I discovered Porcupine Tree, and subsequently found The Pineapple Thief. Over the past year, The Pineapple Thief have become one of my favorite bands. Up to now, however, everything I've heard has been from their back catalog. This is the first new album I had to wait for. I pre-ordered it back in March and had to wait for two months -- and, of course, I had to wonder if it would live up to expectations.

I needn't have worried. Bottom line: I love this album. It has fulfilled every expectation I had for it. Bruce Soord, the vocalist/guitarist/songwriter, has managed to create a set of songs that build on the band's previous work while also continuing to evolve. In other words, it manages to be both different and familiar, pleasing to longtime fans and accessible to new ones. If you're already a fan, that's probably all you need to know. If you've never heard of them, how do I describe them? If you like Radiohead or Smashing Pumpkins, you'll probably like The Pineapple Thief. They're not clones of either of those bands, but there are similarities, particularly in the vocals. Earlier albums found Soord doing his best Billy Corrigan imitation (while also managing to sound better than Corrigan) but he now sounds more like Thom Yorke. His voice may not be as pure, but his fragile-seeming tenor often surprises me with its strength. Thematically, Soord's songs are full of melancholy, but his voice manages to simultaneously convey both sadness and an almost-childlike hope that maybe, just maybe, things might get better than they are now.

Musically, this is one of the most visceral albums I have in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review from a newbie PT2 fan January 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Amazon kept recommending this band to me, so I read some reviews (from hard core fans) and gambled on this album. With no previous experiences with the band, I was disappointed my first listen. Yet after cycling through in my car a few more times, I started to experieince earwigs like crazy - parts of half a dozen songs were constantly in my brain. Quickly, this became my favorite album of the year (yes, clearly better than last year's The Incident by PT1). And like another reviewer, I listened to nothing else in my car for three weeks. The disc has three characteristics that enthralled me: the album is FULL of irresistible hooks (many of the songs start very differently than the song body, which can be a little jarring); most songs sport a guitar and bass-driven beat that grabbed me like Zep in the '70's (think Immigrant Song, without Plant's screams, of course); and Bruce Soord's vocals are amazing, whether harmonizing with himself or 'singing solo'. Yes, Thom Yorkeish, but not nearly as much so as the previous two discs. My only technical criticism is that on a few occasions (Show a Little Love and the title track)there is only one verse before launching into the bridge, chorus, or next suite-like passage, which can seem a little unbalanced. I subsequently bought Tightly Unwound and Variations on a Dream, and they do not come close to measuring up to Someone Here is Missing. Guess I'll have to go further back in the catalog, but the bar is set pretty high with this release. I can't really categorize this band, but nor can I categorize Porcupine Tree. I will say that this is an album with an identity and sound all its own, and really defies comparisons. This is simply a great album. If you like the genre and the bands kicked around in these reviews, you are likely to like this album - a lot.
