The five part piece is held together by the glue of the central song sequence, "Midway". Depicting fleeting happiness, missed chances and the effects of isolation, the introspective meditation on the human spirit in "Midway" making sense of a changing world, provides the cogent emotional fuel for the rest of "islands".
 
Written, produced and mostly played by multi-instrumentalist Alistair, "islands" also features powerful contributions from several guest musicians: notably, the ethereal and haunting vocal accompaniment of Diana Hare and the blisteringly evocative sax of Laurie A'Court.
 
An album as individual as the isolated Norfolk landscape that inspired it, "islands" introduces a distinctive new voice to the contemporary Progressive scene.
