    This is Jazz. Herbie did a brave take on what was happening inside clubs and neighborhoods of inner cities all over the USA at that time. Rap and Hip-Hop was fused with everything back in the day yung-inz(Soul,Jazz,Funk,Punk,Reggae-etc)! Abstract dance and music! I hope I-Tunes can find some Tyrone Brunson and other Edwin Birdsong albums in the future to help other true listeners catch thier catalogs up!
  • Misunderstood album-not Jazz..but who cares?

    This album is a very important album in terms of electronic music when it was released. I give Herbie big time credit for trying music of nature..and making it sound good. Jazz purists should not bother with this album for the most part-you won't like it. Jazz fans with open minds who understand that Herbie was always experimenting and pushing the limits will like this. Fans of electronica/hip hop/dance music might like album also..at least get "Rockit" as it is a classic.

    Great to here Herbie playing great music again. I saw him right before this album came out... and right before the flash-in-the-pan MTV. Herbie's music as with much of the music scene had been overtaken by Disco. ROcket was a huge song because of the video...you kids won't understand, but there was some mediocre music out there with awsome video...back in he good ol days
  • Just another chapter

    Herbie Hancock continues to evolve and grow as an artist. Pigeon holing him is impossible. This album opened the door for what we now know as Hip Hop. I can say that I'm not a huge fan of the genre but he did foster ideas and techniques that are now used widely. Just listen to Possibilites, his recent addition. Collaborating with artists of every type and genre he proves again that he is not standing in his past but forging onto a great future. Keep it up Herbie!
  • A good album; different, not exactly to my taste, but still good

    This album is pretty decent, and was a breakthrough at its time. I personally am one of the "snooty jazz cats" mentioned by another reviewer, but I still enjoy this album every once and a while. At worst, it's a rather important piece of music history. At best, it is the epitome of how catchy music can still be done excellently with deep musical taste.
  • Definitely a jazz record...

    taken into a much different direction. I would say this album along with Art of Noise's "Who's Afraid (of the Art of Noise)" which was released around the same time were both inspirations for many different styles of music to follow.
  • One of the most important albums ever. Never mind the snooty jazz critics.

    25 years later, "Future Shock" is still considered by those in the know as being one of the most important albums of all time. Is it jazz? Maybe not. It probably should be filed in the "Electronica" section, rather than being stacked next to "Maiden Voyage". Is it good music? Absolutely! It may not sound like a big deal to the kids of today, but in 1983, this album was groundbreaking (not to mention the "Rockit" video), and it still sounds as fresh and vital as it did then. Jazz purists deride Hancock for producing this album, but jazz purists don't understand innovation in musicality. Herbie Hancock does. What about jazz is "pure", after all? The cultural importance of this album cannot be overestimated.
