Child of the Future is the 13th studio album from Norwegian three man outfit Motorpsycho and was released to celebrate their 20th anniversary. It's raw and unrefined, full of pounding basslines and frenetic drumming. When considered as a standalone rock n' roll album + extras it just about makes the grade with some good songs.

That's not to say it's particularly bad, but if I decide to listen a Motorpyscho album, Child of the Future is always way down my list.

Key moments include Whole Lotta Diana, Cornucopia (...Or Satan, Uh... Something) and the anthemic title track.

The Verdict: Three stars, but only just.
