My attempt to blog all of the entries from the book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die
Brief Background: Future Days was recorded and released in 1973.
What I think: I remember that I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed Can’s Tago Mago and I was looking forward to listening to this album as well. While still experimental, this album is certainly a different style. Where Tago Mago built to insane climaxes, this is just a steady – what their Wikipedia article describes as “ambient” – sound. It really almost reminds me of The Beastie Boys In a Sound From Way Out, or even at points of something from The Go! Team. And while I love those sounds, coming from Can, I think I like the more immediate Tago Mago.
Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? Another cool listen from Can, I’m glad it is here.
