Be Bop Deluxe second album Futurama isnīt really a prog rock album itīs rather a continuation of the guitar based rock music that was introduced on their debut Axe Victim. I liked Axe Victim and especially Bill Nelsonīs guitar playing. Itīs exactly the same with Futurama. The music isnīt that exciting and the vocals are below average but that guitar playing is worth a lot of attention. The songs are generally not very proggy being mostly guitar driven rock but there are a few songs where prog tendencies are hinted at. Sound Track and Swan Song are the most prominent examples of that.
