There are no reviews for The Islander yet. You can write one.

The video for "The Islander" was shot in the autumn of 2007 in Rovaniemi, Finland and was directed by Stobe Harju.

"Escapist" is widely mistitled as "The Escapist".

The 'normal version' or 'album version' of "The Islander" is, in fact, slightly different from the actual album version. The 'stormy samples' in the intro and outro of the song are slightly different. The 'stormy' outro is about 5 seconds longer on the album aswell.
