1 stars I should state that I came to this album under unusual circumstances ... I could barely believe how unimpressed I had been by the Can compilation Cannibalism I and I thought I'd give the band another chance, thinking that perhaps hearing the songs out of context was a handicap. But all I got was more of the same.

I can't imagine that fans of symphonic progressive rock will enjoy the psychedelic drivel of Mushroom, Oh Yeah, Paperhouse and Halleluwah (although the latter two have moments of promise). While those songs are tough enough to stomach, they are nothing compared to the jarring 17 minute long electronic soundscape exercise Aumgn and its follow-up Peking O. In fact as someone who is also a fan of RIO, Canterbury, jazz-fusion, and quality psychedelic rock, I'm still baffled as to where the true appeal of Can lies. I really hated large parts of this album. If pushed, I'd say Bring Me Coffee Or Tea was the only song that I could tolerate all the way through. ... 19% on the MPV scale
