Motorhome's final album, Man of the Future, finds the band finally coming into their own by shedding their influences and emerging from the murky noise that dominated their previous releases. The title track, "Man of the Future," finds Josiah masterly blending confectionery pop with abrasive guitar noise, while "Phantom Power" and "Underwater" are powerful ethereal dirges that benefit immensely from Kristen Thiele's improved vocal range. This album's only flaw is that it contains only six full songs (and two fragments), but for its low offering price (the band sells the disc at shows for five dollars), Man of the Future is well worth its asking price.
