SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars One of the modern bands whose sound has grown a lot on me in the last years in Pineapple Thief, a UK act that offers progressive rock with a light sound, which is easy to dig and enjoy, closer to alternative rock but with the essence of prog. They have been earning people's love with their music, so nowadays I can say they are not an obscure and unknown band anymore, which is good for them because their sound has been spreading more and more.

I am so happy I will see them live at the Ramblin Man Fair, they are one of my most expected acts at that festival, and I love to see more people is getting involved with their music. And due to that involvement, I think they released this compilation album for people who is getting to know them, or for people who want to rediscover them. With the name of 'Introducing Pineapple Thief', this 2-CD album gives us a nice (but not the best) selection of 20 representative tracks of the band.

Honestly, at first I did not enjoy it a lot, actually I thought and still think the selection could have been better, and though I know this is not a 'best of' compilation, it is strange not to see songs such as 'Nothing at Best', 'All You Need to Know' or 'Resident Alien', which to my ears greatly represent the band's sound. However, we can enjoy a walk through their discography with older and newer songs such as 'We Subside', 'Doppler', 'Barely Breathing', 'Warm Seas', 'We Love You' or 'Vapour Trails', among others. Sadly, this was released before Magnolia, so of course we will not find tracks from their most recent studio album.

If you are new to the band, this might be a nice way to start. If you already like the band or even love them, I think you might avoid this, or buy it in order to complete your collection, but you will not find anything extraordinary here. To my fellow Mexican fans, this album is distributed and can be found via Odisea Producciones.

Enjoy it!
