2 stars I am gonna put this very simply, this is not my favorite Can album, heck it's my least favorite. It may be inoffensive at worst, but even then, this is not the Can I know and love. Some of the songs are alright, Don't Say No, Call Me, Fly By Night, all pretty good songs all around, however the album lacks that early Can feeling, that Krautrock vibe of their old works. Monster Movie, Soundtracks, Tago Mago, Ege Bamyasi, Future Days, heck even Flow Motion had that sort of deserty, almost Arabic vibes. I guess you can only do so much with that sound before it sounds old, you know? But that doesn't really help this album's problems. I am totally fine with a band going a more pop like direction, I think it can work very well if put together well (IE Genesis and Yes (kinda)) but Can sorta missed the mark a bit and made something a bit off for a lot of their fans. So yeah, this is not a good album, but it is inoffensive really so, what can you really do about it?
