I discovered P Thief through a sampler CD and this double CD really captures the full breadth and quality of their work. Some of the tracks grab you first time round, others grow on you with each listen. If you haven't heard them before this is a great place to start !!

I was at first reluctant to buy this compilation. Since happening on the band a couple of years ago I have been totally awe-inspired by them, I have everything Bruce Soord has done with The Pineapple Thief and am a great fan of their work - studio and live.
However, I thought, I have all these songs on their original albums. Why should I spend good money on a compilation? Being a completist when it comes to all things pineapple, I eventually pre-ordered it though.
Boy am I glad I did. The packaging is superb. The notes are a brilliant insight into how Bruce feels about his songs. The selection is wonderful. However, the best bit is the remixing the songs have received from Bruce and keyboardist Steve Kitch. The album may be a compilation, but unlike so many others, it works as an album in its own right purely because of the time and thought put into remixing, reengineering and getting the track order right. I originally thought it odd that several songs from one album were close together on one disc, with none on the other disc - but it works. It works so well.
My only problem is finding 2.5 uninterrupted hours to play this masterpiece through in a single sitting and give it the attention it so richly deserves. It is such good value for money at that length and price.
Bruce has always been a perfectionist - he withdrew 12 Stories Down because it was not right in his mind and took time to come up with 10 Stories Down instead. This is as close to perfection as he has yet managed to get.
If you like Porcupine Tree, Radiohead, Coldplay, progressive music (as opposed to prog), indie or alternative rock or are just open to good music, then you could do a lot worse than giving this a go.
Bring on their new album in 2010!
