3 stars Less introspective and filled with more energy and upbeat songs - this is the characteristics of this album. Pineapple Thief leave slowly their Radiohead influences to embrace more of Porcupine Tree touch. The songs are heavier than usual anc contain more guitar riffs as opposed to strings or keyboard soundscapes known from previous works. Two exceptions are "The state we're in" and "Barely breathing" with emotional harmony vocals and semi-acoustic sound. "Preparation for the meltdown" is a combination of a traditionally melody led song and heavy post-rock riffing. The title track is weaker than usual. The last and longest song has a dramatic atmosphere marked by drums and strings but also a pleasant vocal harmonies in the end. This album is easy to get familiar with but does not leave much memorable for a prog-oriented listener.
