FUTURE NOW, THE: Hazy Orange Sunday: LP

Jul 29, 2010

This LP was a big shocker for me because it’s a genre I thought was pretty much done. Some songs sound like Soundgarden covers while others sound like early Foo Fighters covers. Let me clarify that it’s not nearly as good as any of those bands, but is merely going for that specific sound. The last song actually is a cover, and the best one on the album. These guys pull off a pretty rocking “Hollywood Babylon,” but, then again, it’s pretty hard for that song to not sound badass. I just feel like I’m listening to “alternative” radio during the ‘90s but can’t recognize any of the songs, which wouldn’t happen, as I listened to the radio obsessively during junior high.
