5 stars I love this record. It so versatile innovative and melodic.The perfect mix of prog with jazzy playng of Keith Tippett. The Fripp's solo on Sailor's Song is unforgettable. Beatlesque Ladies of the Road, tragic and poignant The Letters, Renaissance Song Of The Gulls adopted from earlier Suite No. 1 and moody title song. Although the word is that the group was struggling to fill up the album, so they included Suite and made Islands longer, but I thing that even so, it just made the record perfect.
