This release comes in a 2×digipak format in a slipcase with new sleeve notes by Robert Fripp and King Crimson biographer Sid Smith along with rare photos and archive material. Islands is the sixth in a series of audiophile King Crimson vinyl reissues. The album's return to the 12" vinyl format is newly cut from masters approved by Robert Fripp. Manufactured on 200g super-heavyweight vinyl, housed in a reprint of the original sleeve with lyrics insert. The album is a hodge podge of ideas and there is no flow or continuity. Each track could exist separately. This is one of the Crims least beloved lineups even tho they were capable of more free-jazz improv than any previous or subsequent incarnation of the band. A frequently beautiful and sometimes unfairly overlooked part of King Crimson's always intriguing back catalogue.
