Islands take the best bits of New Order, Future Islands and other synthpop greats and simplifies the formula. You won't find a dull moment across Islomania, as every track is catchy in its own way. There's nothing here that hasn't been done before, but there's also no reason you can't find something enjoyable to the record as a whole.

Standouts: Islomania, (We Like To) Do It With The Lights On, Carpenter, Closed Captioning, Set the Fairlight, A Passionate Age, Never Let You Down
