4 stars The first The Pineapple Thief album after the incorporation of the outstanding Gavin Harrison on drums!

And after the just ok "Magnolia", I have to say that this album was a big leap in the right direction. The complex Harrison's rhythms are perfectly harmonized with the great Soord's guitars and the songs are catchier, more diverse and harder than before, introducing great riffs which reminds a bit of Porcupine Tree, but moodier and more alternative rock oriented too.

The Soord's production of the album is also excellent, bringing this band to a whole new level and making them definitely win a well-deserved place among the best prog-rock acts today.

Good job, guys!

Best Tracks: In Exile (incredible guitars towards the end), Tear You Up (a showcase of Harrison's abilities), Take Your Shot (typical Pineapple style with another excellent guitar solo) and Fend for Yourself (great clarinet played by Supertramp's John Helliwell)

My Rating: ****

The Crow | 4/5 |
