Pick up Tago and Ege before this one
on 30 October 2007
Borrowing from the title of the Can remix album it seems "sacrilege" to criticise this album. I am a huge Can fan and have heard most of their output and although this album is often offered up as their best, and has received glowing reviews here, I think it is the weakest of the celebrated Damo Suzuki Trilogy - both "Tago Mago" and "Ege Bamyasi" are superb 5* albums and the songs on "Future Days" neither offer the efficient groove of Ege (excepting the exceptional "Moonshake") or the avant garde scope of Tago. I haven't heard the remastered cd but the previous releases also suffered from a bit of a fuzzy production lacking the pounding rhythms so important to the Can sound (or maybe the material was just not so good).
