3 stars This is what I call the last traditional Pineapple Thief that has traces of Radiohead. The melody and flow over complex shifts in composition and many laid back soft tracks. The first track confirms that. Then we have "Shoot first" that displays how the band will change the focus in the future to become more pompeous in the progressive-rock vein. This is a very strong track. Coldplay influence kicks in in the next song although the song is much more complex than any radio-friendly Coldplay tracks. The title track has heavy drums, a muted voice a layer of mellotron behind. Traditionally, there are some delicate lenghty tracks - even two on this album. Different World is softer, more introspective with great and tender Soord's voice. On the other hand, progheads will prefer the last "Too much to lose" due to instrumental sections. A good album but in the league with the previous two ones.
