5 stars Album titled "All The Wars" (2012) by The Pineapple Thief, came out not so unambiguous. This is probably because the band was busy touring and the musicians didn't have enough time to write more stuff. The disadvantage of the album, in my opinion, is the excessive "diversity" of the compositions. And the ballad component, alas, is not the strongest side of the Thief. But when it comes to powerful tracks, the band has refined its sound again and added depth to the once raw and deliberately primitivistic sound. The keyboards also became brighter (they were always there, they just seemed to have grown from this album). And of course the vocals of Bruce Soord from this album blossomed with bright colors and still does not fade. He can rightfully be called the new Robert Plant from the neo-progressive scene, with a guitar skill that rivals David Gilmour, only unlike Dave, who has a more raw, grungy approach. In any case, these qualities in one person are a real gift for connoisseurs. There are two tracks to focus on. One such subtle masterpiece is "Someone Pull Me Out", with its airy, flying harmonies and paranoid intro. And of course "Reaching Out" is a 10 minute masterpiece, which is perhaps the best composition of the group. A magnificent thin and soulful voice, coupled with symphonic arrangements, turning into a harsh meditative psychedelic and ending with a powerful hysterical guitar explosion. All of the above is superbly combined and perfectly executed, because in any approach the group is much more competent than its "older brothers". And, as always, a beautiful album cover.
