3 stars Fans of dreamy atmosphere and melancholy, emotive textures will find a lot to like in this release from Pineapple Thief, which features a set of songs heavy on syrupy-sweet vocal deliveries and delicate guitar work. At least that's the impression a new listener will likely get at first, until the savage guitar riffing picks up. Dynamics are a big part of this music, and Soord's arrangements do pack quite the punch once they get moving; waiting through a few minutes of droning, sustained vocals usually pays off before long-- some may not like to wait that long though (and waiting there is).

I don't recommend this one as much as the more even "137", but fans from the genre will be delighted by "Variations" melancholy melodies and soaring guitar builds.

Songwriting: 3 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: 3 Style/Emotion/Replay: 3
