5 stars I honestly don't remember this album having a strong reputation on PA; the only bit of excitement I had before purchasing a vinyl copy of the album is the fact that my dad owned this album on vinyl until the mid 90's (I was around 8 years old) when vinyls were thought to be a dead medium. Well, I picked this up on a $5 US price tag and somehow, some way ended up with well more than I paid for.

REMEMBER THE FUTURE is a one song epic album split into ten parts. The vinyl I own has the grooves marked at about where each section transitions into another. This makes it easy for me to find a part that I like relatively easily, but to be honest, it's almost a sin if I don't listen to the album in full. The overall flow of the album is simply fantastic as each theme is developed properly and any switch of themes is greatly appreciated rather than awkwardly forced.

The album combines various elements of funk, AOR, psychadelia, prog, rock and other things into a unique output. My pick for the best section is the ''Confusion'' section; a lot of prog things go down here in this psychadelic freak out, including Roye Albrighton's fantastic guitar work. Part One tends to be a bit more boring than Part Two only because the dynamic changes in the second half are more significant.

An underrated piece of psychadelic prog history.

Sinusoid | 5/5 |
