I disagree, but that’s the beauty of music, some you love some you hate some you are indifferent to.

I was at a friend's house and happened to find a Future Islands LP in the stack. (That's a commitment as in NZ it would have set her back $37). Had heard some on RP and with time to kill I strapped in. Sadly found I enjoyed the LP less than the odd single on RP. Ah Well. Sometimes it just doesn't add up to anything.

Also found the Emmylou Harris -> John Hiatt -> Future Islands segue a bit off, which is saying a lot for RP. Maybe it's an off morning. It'll change

These guys were clearly influenced by (or "borrow from") a lot of the "synth-pop/new wave" bands from the 1980s but I doubt if they've ever heard of that band or that song (Secret Service - "Oh, Susie").  Secret Service was barely known outside of Europe and the members of Future Islands weren't even born when that song came out.  I don't disagree with your assessment of "old wine in new bottles", it's just probably not that particular old wine.

Yeah, kind of reminded me of Fine Young Cannibals from the early 90s.  But that's a good thing, IMO.

I've been listening to these guys quite a bit.  The whole album is good, really enjoying it.

BillG - here's about the 1,000,000th THANK YOU to you and RebeccaG for providing your station to us.  This has quickly become one of my favorite tunes (a 9 for now) and up there with Elbow and Spoon as groups you've opened my eyes to - and that's where the thanks comes in.  So there.  THANKS again!

Long Live RP!!

My priors are favourable meaning I am favourably biased towards Future Islands.  That said, I do agree with other posters who note the sameness of sound.

So far, I enjoy the new material but not enough to reach for the wallet.

Wondering what a concert of FI would be like. They seem to recycle the same song, albeit a good one. But it seems like it would get old by intermission or so…
