A band on their 12th album shouldn't be that great!
Taken in that context and considering their vast sometimes excellent back catalogue it has to be a 9

8/10. SPLAM and Mayakovsky prevent it getting a 9.

Did you replace them with Empty motorcade and TLTISP?

Bump it up to a 9 son.

I opt not to rate Futurology as I intend never to listen to it again. The sequencing is off and having the title track as the opener with lyrics like "we'll come back one day" and "one day we'll return" does not work for me.

However, I concede that the sequence below is a worthy follow up to Lifeblood and would be their best album this side of the millennium IMHO.

01. EUROPA GEHT DURCH MICH
02. WALK ME TO THE BRIDGE
03. THE NEXT JET TO LEAVE MOSCOW
04. BLACK SQUARE
05. DREAMING A CITY (HUGHESKOVA)
06. THE VIEW FROM STOW HILL
07. BETWEEN THE CLOCK & THE BED
08. MISGUIDED MISSILE
09. MAYAKOVSKY
10. FUTUROLOGY
11. THE LAST TIME I SAW PARIS

...but not quite as good as I Killed The Zeitgeist.

I give the above 7.9/10

I'm even optimistically reserving a place for one of the Japanese tracks.

8/10 for me - SPLAM and Divine Youth (and to some extent Let's Go To War) bring the marks down considerably. If those three were replaced by the bonus tracks it would have been a definite 9/10 for me.

I can't rate it as yet, as I'm waiting patiently for Monday. It does worry me that it received so many great reviews, and yet, I can't get that excited about anything that I've heard from it. WMTTB and EGDM are both pretty good, but that is all. For me, it would be a stepping stone between KYE and Lifeblood...at the moment (KYE, I rate... Lifeblood, I don't).
However, give me a week and I may feel differently. RTF started as a 4/10 and is now a 7/10. Futurology could go either way at the moment.
