3 stars Prepare to be underwhelmed.

I agree with ZowieZiggy--I just don't get what is memorable about this album. Remember the Future to me is the definition of average, with songwriting, vocals, guitar, keys. There's little changing of time signatures, no virtuosic playing, and very little creativity and uniqueness anywhere on this album. There are some psychadelic spots, some quasi-disco bits, and some hippy filler, and all are average, tame, uninspired, and any number of synonyms.

Part One. The intro is nice enough, especially if it was building to something memorable. Unfortunately, the main chorus (about eight minutes in, mind you) is repetitive and seems to lag in tempo. If there is a highlight, it's the conclusion, where they shift times a bit and do some cautious freaking out.

Part Two. Definitely higher quality throughout, especially in that this song is actually going somewhere worth waiting for. A happy, pleasant intro is reintroduced with an edge at the conclusion, which sets up the foot-tapping finale. Possibly a little to disco-y, but a few minutes I can admit to enjoying.

You won't love it, and you won't hate it. It's just decent, and that may be enough for you to warrant purchasing. If you really want your rock to progress, I recommend avoiding Remember the Future.
