    Half of the tracks are really good, while others are dragging the beat too much. My favorites would be "Hit The Ground (Superman)" and "Rubbernecking". It's fair to say that it has really awesome tracks filled with classy beats and hipster coolness to surround your parties with uplifting aura. I listened to the whole album twice and only six stood out.

    A real hit and miss album. When it hits, your ears are filled with snazzy, elctropop goodness that tickles your eardrums. And other points of the album you are met with not fully realized material that often leaves you wanting for more. An interesting listen for those looking for something different and interesting, but ultimately it is just a mixed bag of music that you are left toA real hit and miss album.

    Perhaps keen to avoid their one-hit wonder status, follow-up Future This eschews their original experimental ambitions by shamelessly attempting to repeat its success.

    The album's middle section treads water--'The Palace' passes by without making any impression whatsoever, '1313′ sounds like a more conventional Panda Bear--and then it all goes tits up.

    It's the inconsistency of Future This--particularly the band's newfound tenderness vs. Their miscalculated explosions of noise--that make it a largely baffling listen.
