5.0 out of 5 stars Space rock March 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Being a fan of Failure, I was instantly interested in listening to this album. It grows on you very fast and doesn't get old. If you like your music to have that spacey feel with interesting singers (yes, plural) and a lot of distortion, this is perfect. Future perfect, perhaps. hahaha, I'm lame. I know.

Yes, there are remnants of Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine here, but as you listening to them more, you are hardly reminded of either.

The album flows beautifully. There's no denying that. Compared to the eight song demo, the sound is more refined. If you listen carefully to Greg on guitar, the quantity of sounds he produces is astounding. It's just him up there.

I highly recommend this album. It's one of my favorites of 2004.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Future of Alternative Music October 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Let's face it, alternative music, or what we thought of as alt-music is pretty dead, baseless, and derivative at this point. However, this album will make you howl with pleasure at first listen. Listen to it LOUD. This is an amazing band from Los Angeles/Silverlake area who formed in late 2000 and to their fans, this album has been expected for a few years after their signing with DMZ. It's hard not to listen to this record and not hear how soaked it is with swirling effects, noises, ground-shaking low end, and crashing cymbals. From the opening drums of "Turnstile Blues" to the Star Wars esque ending of "Capital Kind of Strain" this record will delight and make you put away your instruments saying "I give up." It's hard not to like a record with the guitar of former Failure bassist/guitarist Greg Edwards, who of course has been credited with a lot of the writing and creativity after his heroin induced spark of creativity on the classic Failure album "Fantastic Planet." The band is rounded out by Eugene Goreshter on bass and vocals, previously in Maids of Gravity and also played on the Beastie Boys track off of "Ill Communication" called "Eugene's Lament", and Carla Azar on drums and vocals who previously played drums in Ednaswap, and has worked on drums for Elvis Costello as well as writing songs with the late Jeff Buckley ("What Would you Say"). I guess the record has it's roots in 90's alt rock, especially 90's L.A art-alt-rock like Failure and Medicine, even some My Bloody Valentine could be picked up on first listen. It's hard to nail down standout tracks because they all seem to be amazing, but I guess I would say tracks like "Great Days for the Passeneger Element", "Blanket" with it's amazing guitar effect in the chorus, as well as "Here Comes Everbody." don't sleep on this album, it's the best one you'll hear this year, and for a few years to come. And catch them live, it's very loud, and if you're epileptic, maybe take your medicine before hand. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's time for the 1990s to happen December 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is a shock. It is a surprise at every moment. It's like the last five years never happened. The first three songs are wonderful. It takes a reinvents all sorts of music from the past twenty years. It is not a rehash. There is some futuristic element to this band. It is very arty music. It is elegant music. Every element and every sound seems really worked on. It's like fine chiseled sculpture. "Sugarless" and "Blanket" are some of my favorite songs. These songs are unforgetable. I am surprised that I have not heard of this band before this year. I saw them play in November and it was amazing. This album is ultimately very satisfying. It's exciting that T. Bone Burnett was involved. Some bands are brash and rock out. It is really exciting to see something done with such style. Autolux is unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obtain this album! August 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Autolux - Future Perfect.

I was first introduced to this group when they were opening for The Secret Machines during their 2004 tour. Both groups were amazing.

Future Perfect opens with catchy melodic sound that just demands to be played at the loudest. There are a couple things about this album that you can consider in obtaining it.

First, It is shoegazing and rock at it's finest. The music is loud and beautiful, yet it feels a bit restrained. See "Robots in The Garden" Raunchy guitar noise, see "Asleep At The Trigger" for beautiful guitar noise. The entire album is beautiful, catchy and different.

Second, the music is unlike anything in music at this time. The comparisons made by critics and Amazon's "Recommended" and "Similar Artists" sections are disorienting. They have faint similarities to Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine simply becasuse Future Perfect sounds so old school and noisy. Eugene and Carla's voices are beautiful together, ("Sugarless"). The drumming is right on, Carla seems to be musically trained, since she holds the sticks like the kids in a marching band. Greg's guitar effects add a great depth to the music, creating what can be simply discribed as "edgy space noise".

They'll be touring later in 2005 with NIN and they routinely play in whatever little clubs in L.A. They've been touring like mad in the last year!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album--great in concert, too March 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic album for a burgeoning band. I had a chance to see these guys open up for Secret Machines in DC and they were outstanding. I know a lot of people will have the tendency to compare them to Sonic Youth and MBV, but at least they did their homework (those are two of the best bands ever!)

Honestly, if you enjoy rock that lingers in and out of distortion with solid melodies, basslines, and drums--as well as dreamy vocals--you will love this album. Give it a listen a couple times and I can't see any rock fan being disappointed. This is pure dream pop!
