The Arm, Kids Don't Know Shit, and I Feel Evil Creeping In are each excellent examples of this. Interestingly, this is the album that earned Islands their place here in Progarchives. To me, it is their debut album that is their proggiest, although I understand why this one got them included here. There is a bit of maturity here, and the addition of violins, that gives the music here a more distinctly symphonic texture here as opposed to their very indie-sounding debut. The songs here are tighter and more consistent than they were on the debut, which is both a blessing and a curse  .

Arm’s Way, Islands’ second full-length effort and followup to 2006’s Return to the Sea, is an excellent mix of catchy tunes and strong musical skill from Nick Thorburn and crew, resulting in one of the most diverse and enjoyable new albums in recent memory. A veritable melting pot of musical genres and influences, unlike Thorburn’s previous works with past band The Unicorns and the Islands debut, this album focuses more on musical structure and tightness. These early tracks make the album an excellent purchase for anyone wanting to expand their musical intelligence, without becoming lost in long drawn out abstract tracks. What’s more, added to the stunning violins, deep bass saxophone and ferocious drums, is an amazing vocal performance by the aforementioned frontman. In other words, Arm’s Way is a complete effort from all parts of this six piece Montreal band.

Arm's Way" takes some new risks with the Islands' sound. And while a couple songs have too much ordinary guitar rock, the album overall ends up quirky, danceable and enjoyable. Lots of energy, and lots of weird. Opener "The Arm" starts off softly with a tinge of crashing cymbals here, a gentle guitar melody there, topped off with a slowly building hum, before exploding into one of the most epic guitar riffs I've heard in indie rock this year, complete with arching violins and enough musical shifts to last half an album (the marching interlude is particularly effective).

Arm's Way is a masterful and intricate offering progressing from their debut to create a new vision mixing a banquet of sounds and tempos to create an accomplished peace of musical craftsmanship. 70. As is typical of Thornburn's music, Arm's Way must be approached with an open mind

Album Arm's Way. Vertigo (If It's a Crime) Lyrics. Vertigo (If It's a Crime)" Track Info.

Arm’s way is the title of the album. The Arm is the title of this song and as the first song on the album, I find it to be highly appropriate for some reason. The name of the Canadian band is Islands and Arm’s Way is their second studio album. The first thing you should notice about this song is the amazing intro. Soft humming flows into a pretty violin trill.
