Product Description

avorite psych-and-prog-spiritual pioneers are back with their second full-length. It resonates with the same epic ring, beloved deep rock touchstones, and genuine folk fragility that made their self-titled debut an instant classic. "In The Future" possesses immense breadth, seamlessly showcasing short and classic folk-pop gems along with driving modern rock masterpieces, peaking with "Bright Lights", a 17-minute multi-dimensional opus that gives Pink Floyd's "Echoes" a run for its money. This double CD deluxe edition is limited to 10,000 copies.

With In the Future, the Vancouver, BC-based retro-rock act Black Mountain has really worked through its influences, delivering a classic slab of new stoner/headphone rock. The band's eponymous debut treaded through the catalog of many a classic rock and folk artist's greatest hits album, picking the best bits from Deep Purple and Black Sabbath here, Mountain and Thin Lizzy there, as if these kids' folks had good taste in Big Rock, but not much else. In the Future is far less afflicted with such big-mustache irony. It's tempting, for example, to call the sprawling, hypnotic "Bright Lights" an "epic jam," simply because it's almost 17 minutes long. But the song has great male and female vocals, bring to mind John Doe and Exene Cervenka knackered on laudanum, and is hugely massive in parts, quiet and moody in others. Besides which, it really is a great epic song, not quite up to par with the song suite from Rush's 2112, but surpassing anything similar by Uriah Heep. The rest of the record is eclectic without ever straying far from heavy, psyched-out prog-metal with touches of contrasting folk. Basically, this is the ideal soundtrack to a serious game of Dungeons & Dragons. --Mike McGonigal
