Your Wilderness is the kind of prog record that really makes you think. It's not lost in its own pretentious delusions nor is it trying too hard to be something that it isn't. Rather - Your Wilderness is a tasty and cinematic piece of music that captures the imagination and repeatedly reminds us of the power of music. It shows us that The Pineapple Thief are among the great rock bands of our time and their unique brand of soft rock is going to keep you fascinated - coming back time and time again for more ethereal beauty.
I can't help but to be in love with the gentle soundscapes that the band has created here. These songs are powerful, full of virility but also wonderfully subdued. While they certainly are chock full of potent ideas it's the general vibe of Your Wilderness that gets to me. It's the bands ability to touch on concepts that many of their peers would scurry away from and their willingness to take exotic left turns in their songwriting. The Pineapple Thief are more than just a rock band - they are artisans of volume cultivating the sort of music that nerds like me can't help but to sit back, relax and fall in love with.
The musicianship behind Your Wilderness is thrilling and The Pineapple Thief leave you smiling, in love with the strangely driven sounds that they have cultivated for so long. Your Wilderness is a personal journey and one that lets you find out more about yourself than anything else. It gives you a path and a key and from there asks you to find your own way. I can't help but to love this record, I'm just curious to hear the band grow and use their bombast to its absolute finest and maybe even change the world.
