4 stars Although I was never really into Can's music, I must admit this is an excellent record and it will always be my favourite one.

The music in here differs slightly from their previous work since the new mellow atmospheric sound is quite different comparing to their old "Ege Bamyasi" or "Tago Mago" tribalistic percussion-led album. This was clearly a consequence of a "cosmic" influence and fortunately they done an incredible creative music instead of simply reproducing usual songs schemes.

This was the last can effort featuring their charismatic japanese singer "Damo Suzuki", in fact the vocal contribution is quite minimal and less present than their previous work. The sound is sometimes focused on Jazz inspired sequences mixed with oceanic elements (we can hear water sounds at the beggining of the album) and exotic percussions.

The last song "Bel air" is definitely the Can sound signature. A 20 minute song featuring the can sound recipe: hesitating, almost whispering singing. Complex, yet repetitive drum performance. "Electronic" Keyboard and guitar work mixed together resulting in an amazing avantgarde musical landscape.

Recommended for Krautrock fans, this a major product featuring really enjoyable music, It has it's historical importance too since this heavily influenced the later Post-Rock Scene.
