Side one contains 3 of these songs, including the beautiful title track, the haunting 'Spray', and the short, upbeat 'Moonshake' (the funkiest Can ever got). Side two contains one of the great mood peices in rock history, 'Bel Air'. This 20 minute song, which is divided into 3 distinct sections, touches on many genres, including ambient, which at the time didn't even exist.
These four tracks helped create the moodiest and most well rounded album in the Can catalog. Unfortuantely, Damo Suzuki decided to leave the band follwing this album to become a Jehovah's Witness (WTF?). 'Future Days' might not be as legendary as 'Ege Bamyasi', or as daring as 'Tago Mago', but it is certainly is in no way inferior to those albums. 'Future Days' is the final statement from a constantly evolving and consistently original band that continues to add to its legacy through re-issued records like this....for the sake of future days.
