With Future City Records it's happening to me what happened with the Thinner netlabel back then: I realize that I am listening to extremely good things, that maybe this confluence of inspired producers will never happen again, and that I must enjoy that while they last. I am particulary fond of this record because of its sense of humour: in their bandcamp they describe it as "based on the soul-shattering, cocaine fueled, world-record breaking Top-Gun workout that should once occur in everyone's life", and it's, quite shocking how the tunes are perfect in capturing that timelessness quality of manierist 80s deja vu and new production tricks, with electric guitar overloads mixed with hi rng (check also the other fantastic Muscle song not featured in here, "Hot in the city"). Maybe, with so many John Carpenter/Alan Howarth nods and other extremely nostalgic pretty offerings this is what we actually needed: just fun. And it gets better with time.
