  • Summary: Brother-sister duo Jim and Alison Shaw return for this, the distinctive English band's seventh album. While Alison's unique vocals are still clearer in the mix (as they were for 'Population Four'), the music here is more varied and ventures a bit more into electronica.

    Their best album to date. [Apr 2002, p.70]
  2. Mojo

    Although [Future Songs] reveals no radical reinvention, it does see them stretching their creative legs. [Jul 2001, p.96]
  3. Lyrics aside, there's nothing distinctly unappealing or half-assed about this album.... It just feels awfully familiar.
  4. Future Songs is minimalist and alien, haunted and pained: like a bloodless Cocteau Twins.
