5 stars My favourite album by this band, it's definately different from their previous stuff. Here they don't sound as "schizophrenic", but instead they changed their sound into a more atmospheric, relaxing, "cosmic" one. You could say this anticipates, in some way, ambient, but closer to being a "prog" record. "Moonshake" is the only song which is not as atmospheric as the rest, and it's closer to their previous "hypnotic" sound, but although it's clearly out of context, it's pretty good and they've put it in the perfect place of the album. It's the shortest song too. The rest is a very interesting trip, with Damo singing some interesting (and ocassionally catchy) melodies, without sounding as weird as on their previous LPs, and appearing less, since now he's not that important for the music. "Bel Air" is the best song here, since each part of it is perfectly done and mixed , and the refreshing title track is almost as good, and with nice percussion and guitar arrangements. "Spray" sounds a bit menacing, with complex drums and the rest of the band doing interesting stuff around them.

Overall, a great record. Innovative, atmospheric and relaxing. Future Days sounds like having a drink on a hot summer day.
