Pressestimmen zu "Your Wilderness":

Guitar 4.5/5: "…myteriös, verträumt und irgendwie gespenstisch."
Mint: "Das grandiose produzierte Album klingt mit dem dynamischen Sound des 180-Gramm-Vinyls perfekt…"
Audio 4/5: "Ein gelungenes Prog-Rock-Album mit sehr ausgewogenem Klang."
Freie Presse: "Moderner Progrock mit betörenden Melodien und atmosphärischen Soundgewittern. …. Ein bis zum Artwork gelungenes Album…"
Aachener Zeitung 4/5: "Verlassene Gegenden und staubige Straßen begegnen uns bei diesem unkonventionellen Progressive-Rock-Ausflug von The Pineapple Thief."
Donaukurier: "Das Album füllt ein intensiver, im Grundton leicht herbstlicher Progressive Rock mit vielen erst auf den zweiten Blick zu entdeckenden Feinheiten."
Slam sweet 16: "Scheinbar mühelos und ohne Aufwand zaubern THE PINEAPPLE THIEF ein umwerfend mitreißendes Album, das die Emotionen hochgehen lässt und vor allem durch bittersüße Klänge überzeugt, denen immer wieder gekonnt etwas aggressivere Parts entgegengesetzt werden. Einfach schön."
msn.com: "Die Schönheit einer staubigen Straße: "Your Wilderness" ist ein ebenso edler wie unkonventioneller Ausflug in die Täler des zeitgemäßen Progressive Rock. Am Steuer: The Pineapple Thief. …"The Final Thing On My Mind": Einer der wichtigsten Progressive-Rock-Longtracks des Jahres."
amm Plattenladentipps: "‚Your Wildernes‘ umspült den Hörer mit warmen Melodien und einfühlsamen Gesängen, dazu unterfüttert Mega-Trommler Gavin Harrison (u. a. Porcupine Tree) die acht Titel mit einem sagenhaft orchestralen Schlagwerk."
Westzeit 6/6: "…uneingeschränkte Höchstwertung."
Metal Hammer 6/7: "…wunderbare Prog Rock-Scheibe mit namhaften Gästen und Gänsehautgarantie."
Drumheads!!: 5/5
Classic Rock 8/10 TIPP: "…ein Paradebeispiel für Anspruchskost mit cinematischem Effekt … wohlig-warme Prog-Wildnis. …wird die Musik von einer melancholischen Leichtigkeit beseelt… Schöne Entwicklung."
Sonic Seducer: "Das Ergebnis hebt die zwei Seiten von The Pineapple Thief, das Sanfte und Dunkle, noch starker hervor."
Sticks – Album des Monats
NDR-Info – Album der Woche
metal.de 9/10: "Fesselt mit Melodie, begeistert mit Atmosphäre… liefern mit ihrem elften Studioalbum “Your Wilderness” einen atmosphärischen Knüller für die gepflegt-dysthyme Freizeitbeschallung."
Good Times: "Einprägsame, melancholische Melodien und Hooks[..]runden ein gelunges Album ab. Fans von Pink Floyd, Anathema oder Porcupine Tree werden ihre Freude haben."
Hooked-on-music.de: “Your Wilderness“ ist ein absolutes Meisterwerk des modernen Progressive Rock: stimmungsvoll, phantasievoll, wundervoll. Bruce Soord hat hier sein bisheriges Magnum Opus vorgelegt."
Mbeat 8/10: "….hochmusikalische und kompositorisch ausgereifte Juwelen, die nicht nur handwerklich nahe an der Perfektion sind, sondern auch emotional mitreißen."
Tracks: "Eskapismus in musikalischer Form, ein ganz und gar feingeistiges Rock-Album."
eclipsed: "Eine wunderbar schwelgerische Gesangsmelodie jagt die nächste; die Instrumentierungen sind luftig, intelligent und variabel; das Songwriting bietet ungewöhnliche Harmonien; und die Kompositionen stecken voller feiner Details."

Bringing to close an unforgettable 14-date European Winter tour of their 2016 summer hit album Your WildernessThe Pineapple Thief, led by post-progressive mastermind Bruce Soord and reinforced by Gavin Harrison (King Crimson) on drums with Darran Charles (Godsticks) on guitar, gave the sold-out Islington Assembly Hall in London a truly awe-inspiring gig on 11th February 2017. Where We Stood showcases a powerful performance from both band regulars and guests on new tracks from Your Wilderness, including "In Exile", "No Man’s Land" and "The Final Thing On My Mind", and of the classics from previous albums, "Nothing At Best", "Show A Little Love" and "Simple As That".

Bruce Soord says about the show and releaseIt was our last show of the tour and our biggest headline show ever. We had 15 cameras, a massive jib, but more importantly – a sell-out crowd!  The pressure was indeed on, but it’s safe to say that the stars aligned for us that night and it turned out to be one of the most memorable performances of our career so far.

 

We’ve thrown everything but the kitchen sink at this special edition blu-ray.  It has the full show; documentary footage and interviews; and 2 different 5.1 surround mixes (one natural, one discrete) – all in high resolution 24/96 stereo.  It also has our last album ‚Your Wilderness‘ in stereo and surround, plus the special ‚8 Years Later‘ album in stereo with a brand-new surround mix too.  All of that plus 5 acoustic tracks (also stereo and surround) and loads of bonus videos. This is without doubt the definitive ‚Your Wilderness‘ release.”
