3 stars So?"Future Days" is the highest "Can" album rated on PA. Personally, I don't see any move (nor forwards nor backwards) to justify this.

As usual, there are a lot of good percussion work, vocals are quite insipid, and music rather repetitive, inexpressive and frankly dull for most of the time, like during the title track. Two minutes of this treat would have been OK instead of almost ten minutes of such "musical instants".

I am still deeply listening to "Spray" and I still don't like it. A perpetual wave of the same that is dying on the beach. The only great part is again the percussion and some sort of a melody during the last quarter of the track. Big deal!

Some diversion with the psyche rocking "Moonshake", which is one of the best you "can" grab out here. But it only lasts for three mlinutes?

To say that I am blown away with "Bel Air" might probably be exaggerated but it is still the highlight of this album. Some disjointed psychedelia like available on some early Floyd numbers (which were released some five years prior to this, like the great ASOS). The lamentations of the singer are still useless IMHHO.

This is an average album. Five out of ten is my rate. Since it is (and probably never will be) not possible to rate as such, I will upgrade it to three stars. But don't ask me why.
