The Pineapple Thief – Your Wilderness
When a band can exude an abundance of positive energy and a spiritual connection, such as found on “Your Wilderness” by The Pineapple Thief, you know you’re going to be blissfully guided into their world of such profound greatness.
“No Man’s Land” is sure to make you delve deeper and deeper within your soul with its emotionally, soothing vocal harmonies, with the rockish guitar rhythms building up to an awesome climax that’s sure to make you melt like butter. I love the potent spiritual energy and power found on this album, as every one of the eight songs found here compassionately makes the listener’s spirit with total happiness.
What makes “Your Wilderness” an interesting album of sorts is its use of classic photographs from 1960s America, and the way life was between families, friends and even strangers. It depicts so much camaraderie and respect between everyone, and the closeness you’d come to expect from living in small town USA. I’m pretty sure, this attitude is present within more developed countries, but this album definitely reminds of 60s USA with its thought provoking imagery.
The lyrical video for “No Man’s Land” definitely details the classic Americana imagery, which is so prevalent throughout “Your Wilderness”.
“In Exile”, a song about estrangement makes you feel cold and so estranged this vast world of ours. The music on this track is as chilling, suspenseful as it is so uplifting in many ways beyond description.
Singer and songwriter Bruce Soord’s tear-driven vocal harmonies and arrangements go so well with The Pineapple Thief’s art, progressive rock guitar rhythms and subtle but strange emotions.
Soord’s singing is definitely one of a kind, with so many unique mannerisms in his tonality and approach, that it makes all eight songs on “Your Wilderness” so inspirational in many ways.
Listening this album from The Pineapple Thief gave me eternal enlightenment I never to forget anytime soon… This is one art and progressive rock band you do not want to look past, as it will turn your life around. Kscope Sarjoo Devani
