Robert Downey Jr.'s debut album features a star-studded cast of musicians, not the least of whom is Yes's lead singer Jon Anderson (who performs backing vocals on his own "Your Move"). This is a confident step for an actor whose drug problems were making lurid headlines just a few years before this record's 2004 release. Allusions to these tribulations form the bulk of the material on THE FUTURIST, from the opening "Man Like Me" with its "This is a habit I'm breaking now forever" lyric, to the 12-step program reference in "Broken." Downey's voice sounds suitably lived-in, displaying more than a passing acquaintance with the oeuvre of Elton John, and the arrangements are played as impeccably as you'd expect by the outstanding roster of Los Angeles session musicians. Lyrically, Downey can be quite dark, as his macabre role as the corpse in the album's artwork (a tribute to Rembrandt's "The Anatomy Lesson") implies. However, the inclusion of Charlie Chaplin's "Smile" (Downey played Chaplin in the eponymous 1992 biopic) is perhaps an indication of a brighter future for the troubled star.
