'IFCO follows up our highly ignored Stranded LP with an equally, if not more so, strong statement. Core members Karla Borecky and Scott Foust are joined by an all-star cast: Meara O'Reilly and Jessi Leigh Swenson from Stranded, as well as Frans de Waard, Graham Lambkin, and Dr. Timothy Shortell. The island of taste depicts a manoeuvre in which The beauty becomes more beautiful as The desperation becomes more desperate. A stark and romantic mission to The rocks. Lavish package featuring an excellent Karla cover painting as well as a booklet presented as a set of 5 x 7 art cards with anoTher Karla painting, band photos, and an essay of mine. Perhaps The island of taste is The first LP to make explicit a certain nostalgia for itself. Along with The Shadow Ring's Swill Radio trilogy (Lighthouse, Lindus, I'm Some Songs), I'd put IFCO's trilogy (Anti-Natural, Stranded, The island of taste) up against anyone's three LP run.'
