Thumbs up!

I can see why this album was finished so quickly. Real stripped down sound. Nice change.

The video didn't do much for me. Not annoying or anything just kind of bland. Videos have never been Islands thing though. Rough Gem was the only one that I really liked.

Jamie needs to join Islands one more time, if only to give Nick a hug.

Somebody should

I need to stop listening to this. It's really cool to get a taste of the record but I always over do it listening to the first tracks released. Having heard a song so many times it disrupts the flow of the rest of the album that is brand new to my ears. Cannot wait to digest this in it's entirety. Islands make it difficult but i will practice restraint!
ok, one more time.. :yummy:

Yeah, the same for me. I overlisten to the previewed tracks and the album seems unconsistent then...

By the way I was wondering if the ex-girlfriend at the origin of this album was Kate Perkins, that has toured with Islands for a while :

Seen on Musicdirect.com :

The LP version of A Sleep & A Forgetting comes with a cool and unique hidden track, toward the end of side 2 the album comes to false end with a locking groove of ambient loops. Listeners may then lift the stylus and find a hidden bonus track that closes the LP.
Well, I can't order the LP but that would be nice if someone could rip and share the hidden track.
