3.5 greatIai EMERITUS | March 4th 08

Consderiably more ambitious and meandering than their debut, A Future Lived In Past Tense represents both a step forward and a step back for Juno. On the plus side, the highlights on here are astonishing - "Up Through The Night" is simply one of the most beautiful things ever written by a rock band, and "Covered With Hair" might be their best straight-forward song. The band's deftness of touch and attention to detail is obvious throughout, and when this album is good it's very good. The negatives, though, stop this from being a better album than This Is the Way It Goes and Goes and Goes. This album has a tendency to meander, to take far too long to get a conclusion that's too underwhelming in the circumstances - see "Things Gone and Things Still Here" and "The French Letter". Still, a great album from an under-appreciated outfit.
