4 stars When it is an album that came out, the color might be able to feel the listener strong as the overall impression of the album keyboard player's Irmin Schmidt and Bass player's two person Holger Czukay. However, their situations at that time will be able to be caught as a work that contains the produced very exact element in the result of the activity and the idea to the part of a natural flow and music in the process that the band reaches this album.

The idea concerning the music character of the member who tried to introduce a variety of music characters etc. might always have been done attended with an experimental element before this album. It is a part of the harmony of the music character by the above- mentioned member if it thinks as a result though the success to some degree in "Ege Bamyasi" received one the top by the content of this album. And, an experimental element and aggressiveness in the content that shifts from "Tago Mago" to "Ege Bamyasi". They might have had original flows of men who caught the tension from another angle and developed it.

Men who have them dare the tour for about 60 days in the spring of 1973 begin the production of this album. Damo Suzuki that takes charge of Vocal as a result secedes the recording of this album and the band has seceded at the end. Neither the entire reason nor the guess whispered with the listener and the fan are denied though various opinions exist in the reason for secession. As for the fact to which this album was acknowledged for the band as a very complete album, they might already have conceived the necessity that moved to the following directionality.

Aggressiveness that was able to be listened for the current work and an experimental part are almost excluded in this album. However, the music made through time when the band spent the tour and the vacation might have aroused the major break and the idea in the band as a result.

It might be not widespread in shape with too good recording technology and method in the early the 70's as the point that should make a special mention. The work recorded in the multiple might have been work difficult including a money part. Work and zeal to this album that they had constructed in the situation will have been the flows to face the attainment point exactly while following the methodology of the music character that they had already done. Anacatesthesia and order that rules the whole. Or, an electronic element and an unreal sound are constructed. Construction of music character that almost excludes part of extra and is done. If it borrowed the remark of Damo Suzuki, these flows might have been very completed too much. However, I will be able to feel a fatal part including the situation as for the flow that they reached this album. A new singer who took the place of Damo was not appointed since this album. And, the music character of the band is gradually revolutionized. When the album is a band, it is album as one of the masterpieces of a mid- term work that can be counted.

The sound of the float from the introduction of SE in an inorganic rhythm and the space repeatedly rules "Future Days". The member doesn't originate an extra sound. A transient song by Damo Suzuki twines at the same time as the sound of a good percussion instrument contributing to the tune. The order that they do will have originality. A repeated rhythm and an always steady guitar are constant. And, twining of the song that gives the sense in which it participates from another world might be splendid.

As for "Spray", I can feel one space that the band completely produced. Taste with good percussion instrument that is characterized this band and can listen at this time. And, the flow with a good performance of the band that unites order without order might be produced. Percussion instrument that flows in space. And, the sound of the decoration of the keyboard with the tension. The tension is always continued. The flow changes gradually and accompanies the song.

"Moonshake" is a tune from which ideas of men who were able to listen in the current album are followed well. The song twines round the line of a steady rhythm and Bass well. Progress of Chord by cutting of guitar. And, the sound of the decoration in close relation to the tune. The element that the composition of the album is tightened further by such a tune's being collected to this album might be given.

"Bel Air" might be one result of the attainment of the band. The guitar and the keyboard processed by the effect always advance attended with a constant anacatesthesia. The song and the tension that excludes aggressiveness might be consolidated in this tune as one shape of the band. A flow and a sound advanced attended with the tension might always give a good pain for the listener. The tune gradually increases the speed attended with the dash feeling. The performance to which each member is doing the band though it is integral might catch the tune from all directions and contribute. One creation that the band thinks about while showing various respects might be here.

The music character that Can multiplied from the first stage to middle term might be all important. Especially, their works at this time are always popular.
