Lonely Love is the stand out track to me. Should definitely be the next single.

Only had a chance to scan through this, but sounding REALLY good. Sounding mature. A nice change of pace.

My favourites are Can't Feel My Face, Hallways, Same Thing and Lonely Love. I think I'm also getting into Never Go Solo.
Great album that will surely be a grower.
Live shows with tracks from all albums will kick ass.

Yeah idk. Ticketmaster is only selling tickets for 1, and the venue has no information at all. I asked Nick and he said he'd find out, because he was under the impression they were playing 2.

I wonder if the bonus track on the LP is one of the iTunes deluxe edition.

This got an incredibly favorable review on pitchfork, and I agree with a lot of their points. This album is very cohesive and human.

I came to say the same thing. 7.9, the highest rating since RTTS. I'm amazed Islands have avoided any real backlash from pfork.

My favorite part is this paragraph that praises the stripped down songs, which has been a common point of criticism so far.
Confessional intimacy needs an intimate setting to match, so the behind-the-boards inclusion of Rob Schnapf, who co-produced a large amount of Elliott Smith's discography, was an inspired choice. Schnapf keeps things as unfussy as possible, which is fitting since A Sleep & a Forgetting is a particularly unfussy album of capital-S "songs." As with Human Highway and Mister Heavenly, Thorburn's still drawing from garage-pop and singer/songwriter sounds of yester-yesteryear, but save for a few minor flourishes here and there-- the chilled-veins AOR pop of "This Is Not a Song", a "96 Tears"-worthy lick of dirty organ that writhes through "Can't Feel My Face"-- there's nothing that distracts from the songwriting, which is unarguably as strong as it's been since the Nick Diamonds' days as a Unicorn.

I have a record on order, isn't here yet. Do you get the bonus tracks at all? If not is there any place I can download them. I don't want to buy the album again on itunes to get them.

You can buy the bonus tracks individually on iTunes for $1.29.
