Review by vonwegen November 20, 2004 (1 of 1 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
Have to agree with the previous reviewer--this is a keeper, KrautRock of the finest order. Hypnotic bass & drums, fine spidery guitar and a barrage of unique organ textures, topped by unusual but great vocals by Damo Suzuki and original vocalists Malcolm Moody from the U.S.A.

Standout tracks include the epic "Mother Sky" (great for unleashing your Porsche on the Autobahns at night) and the wonderfully jazzy album closer "She Brings The Rain". The complete lack of pop hooks in no way diminishes this release; the pieces reward repeated listenings and really burrow their way into your consciousness.

Sound is good vintage 1970, self-produced and recorded in a West German castle using skillful microphone placements. No distracting tape hiss or dropouts. Recommended.

Performance:   Sonics:
Well, I found this at a small record shop near me. It doesn't have hybrid stickers on it, or a propoganda card. So unless you read the text on the back of the SACD, you wouldnt easily notice it was a SACD.

Recorded in 1969/1970, it is an album of soundtracks they did for films. Sound quality is great, these guys must have used nice an simple mike setups, as the recordings sound very live and real.

If you havn't heard CAN before, theyre a kraut rock band (something like german progressive rock cross phsycadellic). If you like bands like Gong, Soft Machine, King Crimson, then CAN will be something you'll enjoy.

Im not a reviewer, I just know I listened to the albumb 5 times in a row and still wanted more of the driving bass and percussion lines.
