Obviously I hope people will stick around for the rest of this, especially the middle topic, but Pineapple Thief leads things off:

Nick, your "I lose interest after 2-3 songs" line (slight paraphrasing) sums up this band in a nutshell for me. Even if I listen to a few songs in a row that I really like, I quickly find that I need something else.  This band just fails to hold my interest for very long. They are a good band to throw the good songs into a shuffle with tons of other bands.

I definitely have to be in the mood to listen to TPF...and that very rarely happens. I bought Your Wilderness a few months or so after release, but after an initial period of listening, I haven't listened to it for probably 18 months, and I haven't had the desire to purchase other albums. I feel very similar with Anathema and Riverside. Whereas bands like DT, Haken, Frost* and Big Big Train are far more regularly in my listening rotation.
And you may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

This is what I always tell a couple friends about music: if I like something a lot, it will find its way into my CD player (or whatever my most convenient "music player" is :P).  And while most of the stuff I have heard by Pineapple Thief ranges from good to very good, it almost never finds its way into my CD player (outside of a few songs I like enough to turn on somewhat regularly).

The live album is great. I keep playing it constantly. I think TPT sounds better as a live outfit than in the studio.

TPT have confirmed Gavin Harrison is a full member of the band :metal
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

Wonderfully produced album. Anybody else digging this album?

Damn...this album is kicking my nuts. Gavin's playing is phenomenal and out of this world (check out White Mist..might be my song of the year). Production is superb. Might be my album of the year.

I went to get it and sold out so I ordered it.

I definitely enjoyed it and you're right about White Mist being really good. I dunno, I just think that, for me, this reminds me of a Steven Wilson solo album, but not as good. They are quite similar artists but I just prefer SW. I'll give it a few more listens though as it'll likely grow on me.
