8/10 Brian Staff review, 22 November 2006
Quite like this new Islands CD too. Us & a handful of fellow indie strugglers have kindly been given a pre release advance on a ltd number of copies as it doesn't properly come out till may 8th. Featuring some survivors from The Unicorns, and featuring some Arcade Fire members on around 7 tracks. They share some of the epic, widescreen tendencies of the aforementioned with the sprawling  opener morphing into several different beasts as it takes it's long, tripped out journey to who knows where. It's good stuff but I do find my mind wandering a little as I prefer my music harnessed into little easily digested nuggets of pop or hypnotic repetitive head rushes. There's some psych-pop pastiche on here that reminds me very much of some of the Elephant 6 bands. Also should well appeal to the folk who dug that Matinee Orchestra album. All in all, a lush & accomplished sounding work. WE WILL NOT GET ANY MORE TILL MAY WHEN THESE HAVE GONE! BEWARE! On Gruff Trade of Lahndan Taaahn.
