3 stars Future Days is an album filled with pleasant, moody jams that bring to mind images of water, the beach and driving along a southern California road on a Sunday afternoon. In fact, it has a somewhat similar vibe to Kraftwerk's Autobahn, only less German. The tracks float around, fading up and down and into one another in a lazy, relaxed way, largely without calling attention to themselves.

Moonshake appears to be Can's attempt to produce a radio friendly single. It sort of works, being more melodic and shorter than most of their work, but I still can't really imagine it on the radio. Apart from that, there's not much to say about the music, as it is all fairly similar and feels like one extended suite more than individual songs. It is great music for relaxing or driving, but its interest is limited beyond those applications, as thre is anot a lot going on beneath the surface. Good for atmosphere, but by no means revolutionary. 3 stars.
