    Because they've chosen to REALLY rock one style, the thrill from their first record is missing. More predicatable. Damn rocking but on some level, I was expecting more. Don't get me wrong, In The Future is fantastic, but I can hear that these guys are one of the greatest bands currently playing, and this record is only so indicative of that.

    A good fusion of old and new, mostly old though. Think of it as a collaborative act of Atom Heart Mother era Pink Floyd with David Bowie and Deep Purple, with Led Zeppelin coming in for consults here and there.

    One of the best rock albums, maybe of ever. Nice combination of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

    An amazing CD! Finally, true Rock N' Roll has returned! This is a breath of fresh air coming down a Black Mountain.

    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!

  1. It's this mix of the loud and the trippy that Black Mountain specializes in, and In the Future sees the band striving for epic proportions.
  2. This is a wonderfully zealous experience, bristling with realised potential and fulfilled ambition.
  3. Black Mountain won’t win any prizes for innovation, but their slightly bruised brand of retro is far more fertile than that of their contemporaries.
