5 stars In 2017, KScope released a great live performance, The Pineapple Thief, to coincide with the album "Your Wilderness". It included both tracks from the last album at that time, and compositions written at the beginning of the group's career.

It may seem surprising, but the concert is not inferior to Pink Floyd in its brilliance and sonority - only without unnecessary pompous overload. New and old things played with extraordinary colors, not to mention the recording of a very high level. Mainly thanks to the talents of Bruce Soord, who is amazingly powerful in his live shows. His voice became deeper, more angry, which adds some poignancy to a live performance. The songs began to sound more uncompromising and bright than on some studio recordings. And the drummer Gavin Harrison shows himself in all its glory, who modernized and slightly complicated the old songs of the group, recorded long before he came to this brilliant band. It sounds like it's played in it since the founding of PT, which speaks not only of incredible skill, but also of the ability to get along with people.

They were also joined during the tour by the extraordinary guitarist Darran Charles of Godsticks, which further enhanced The Pineapple Thief's unprecedented power and mastery. Strong, original, high quality or very subtle, or with humor - everything is in the best traditions of the ensemble. Also in the Deluxe edition there is a DVD movie with all the concert pieces. This set deserves attention not only for fans of the genre, but also for a wider audience of rock music lovers.
