The Minders are a group that our parents would be able to find acceptable. With all the racket we’ve subjected them to, if you threw in “The Future’s Always Perfect” you might get a comment like, “That’s not so bad sweety,” or even worse, “Honey, who is this?” As you may have guessed from my earlier commentary, this record is a little subdued. There is clever use of a synth and the female vocalist adds plenty of style to robotic rhythms. There are some acoustic jams worthy of play during a relaxing dinner or a disscussion about the weather. Overall, “The Future’s Always Perfect” is not a bad album. Next time you’re over at Mom and Pops’ place, cruise it over, they’ll think that their little baby is finally growing up.
