Castle Rising... such an EPIC track at its best! Maybe this is a mini-album, but in my opinion way more better than the recent-released Steam Days, more powerful and longer tracks are included. Goosebumps!!

Does 6 tracks make an album? Maybe not, considering one of them ("The Curlew") is little more than an interlude. But luckily, Nathan Fake's tracks on HARD ISLANDS morph enough to make them seem like multiple tracks smooshed into one. For instance, "Castle Rising" starts off (comparatively) sparse before launching into the dense thicket of sound that the other tracks share before veering off into ambient territory, dropping the kick drum altogether, only to have it come pounding back in. The melody on "Basic Mountain" stays constant, until Fake decides to twist it, momentarily, into something unrecognizable, while "Turtle," has tiny pauses, like miniature hiccups in the music. "Narrier" has a more crystalline quality to it, while "Fentiger" ends with a melodic sea, even though it starts off with much more straightforward techno. Well, as straightforward as Nathan Fake gets, which is to say: forward-thinking.
