3 stars I just wonder, how often will these guys release albums ;)

Only 9 months since 'What We Have Sown' - and here they go again, with an hour of new stuff, sounding so much like the older one. When it comes to bands like PINEAPPLE THIEF, a matter of taste comes fully in power: I like 'Little Man' (2006) most, though I can clearly hear it's barely different from any other album musically, putting aside record/producing issues. The new one is the same old formula 'RADIOHEAD + PORCUPINE TREE = PINEAPPLE THIEF', with more RADIOHEAD this time (while 'What We Have Sown' was definitely more PTish, more epic and proggy). Songs are good, though hardly as catchy and masterful as Wilson/Yorke use to write, but enjoyable anyway. Fans of both mentioned should add an extra half-star to my rating, others shouldn't bother much. Good, but this time definitely non-essential
