3 stars While far from a perfect prog disk, there's lots to recommend in this sixth release by Pineapple Thief. Nice Mellotron samples, a contemporary edge to the writing and melodic guitar solos. If you dig Porcupine Tree or Radiohead appeals to you - Then this disk will certainly fulfill your musical tastes. I still find the Thief's overall sound to be a bit too 'doom and gloom' to register high on my repeated play list but the creativity evident in 'What We Have Sown' is enough for me to recommend it. My only criticisms lie in the overly upfront and sterile drum sound throughout and some of the songs could also do with a tiny bit of trimming in length. The title track for example, would fair better and be a little less plodding if the tail end built a tad shorter or had some significant solos to bring it back into focus. However, the nifty 'Tron string samples throughout are worth the price of admission though... Like the star rating says: Good, but non-essential.
