  1. Loud-quiet-loud has never been so dizzying.
  2. It's heavy and appealingly dopey in equal measure. [25 Jan 2008, p.69]
  3. This album eclipses their previous output and hits a consistent note of righteous force. [Jan 2008, p.69]
  4. 80
    More diabolical and daring than the band’s shaggy 2005 debut, Future peaks with the primordial 'Bright Lights.'
  5. In the Future is a great second act, a consolidation of strengths, better songwriting and more ideas.
  6. 70
    Black Mountain refine their position as the psychedelic hard-rock/goof-folk revivalists that you can actually stand for an entire album.
  7. Too quick and severe on the brakes, Black Mountain stunt their own grandiosity in the name of dynamics or patience.

    I admit, I'm a fan. But this is definitely their best effort! One of my favourite "modern" rock-albums. If you haven't got this album already, you really should do something about it. Seriously! Expand
