One Happy Island
I'd forgotten how much I like listening to One Happy Island. A Purpose of the Surface is a fantastically rambunctious album from start to end, but at the same time comes peppered with heartfelt and moving moments which give real life to the songs. Even after repeated listening I'm still surprised by the unexpected nature of parts of the album when they come on. The styles and tone are so varied that listening to the album all the way through several times really pays dividends. I'll have to try not to leave such a long time between listens in the future!
