Prog Reviewer
4 stars I agree with most reviews about this album saying it's kind of "In the Court..." pt.II. Yet there is something from "In the Wake..." that does it more for me than "In The Court...". Better songs, better arrangments, a band getting better together, a direction more firmly established. I cannot think of a song I like less than others on this album, whereas some moments from In the Court, I find, are weaker. Sure enough, the album is built on the same "frame" it's predecessor was built upon, namely the order of songs, succession of moods, etc. But I think it's more an accomplished opus. Makes you wonder how Islands would have sounded if the same lineup played on it. 4 and a half stars.
