  1. Impressively, then, Nathan Fake has shown he is very much more than a one trick pony, with a bold second album statement that gets more impressive with every listen. We should watch his every move closely.
  2. The result is writ large on this brilliant second album, which welds his drifting soundscapes to fractious, rapturous techno.
  3. Hard Islands is the nasty business that grabs a hold of your short and curlies and never lets go until your rocks are off.
  4. With only six songs on offer--one of which is a 75-second interlude called 'The Curlew'--it's hard to feel like this is the assertive, confident statement Fake has it in him to make. As a strategic move out from the ghetto of nostalgic IDM Nowheresville, though, it'll suit just fine.
