CRITIC REVIEWS

75
A.V. Club

It’s a contemporary pop record with all the right elements in just the right places

70
The 405

It is a fascinating and largely infectious record featuring massive choruses and hooks

70
Drowned in Sound

As the sound of a band still in development mode and not quite sure of their identity, Future This offers a lucid insight into where their next sonic adventure may take them.

70
PopMatters

Future This is constructed to jam your head full of mountainous pop thrills, not to give you a lot of room to think about them.

52
Pitchfork

Future This, finds the Big Pink as boxed in as their predecessors, recycling the same ideas with less conviction.

50
Consequence of Sound

Much of the record flounders unspectacularly, overstuffed with tired tropes and the same manicured, ultra-manufactured grit that marked A Brief History of Love.

30
No Ripcord

The songs aren’t catchy or danceable enough to appeal to pop kids; there’s not enough grit and abrasion to appeal to the noise brigade; it’s not dark or moody enough to appease the 80s Goth element.
