3 stars When I first came across the TAGO MAGO album, I was thoroughly pleased with it even if the avant-garde moments were a bit too much. The initial surprise was what kept drawing me to TAGO MAGO; the same cannot be said for EGE BAMYASI even if ''the green album'' is good in its own regard.

If the avant, musique conrete stuff is what drove you nuts on TAGO MAGO, you can relax as only ''Soup'' has any elements of that here. However, don't come into this album thinking you'll find classic prog; we deal more so with funky jams and unique rhythms than your typical prog perks. Many facets that would later evolve into hip hop (''Pinch'') and alternative music (''I'm So Green'') seem to have roots in this album.

It's a mixed affair to say the least. ''Pinch'' and ''One More Night'' are quite addicting to say the least, and ''Vitamin C'' and ''Spoon'' take the good jam elements and compact them into bite- sized format. ''Soup'' is weak as it tries too hard to outdo every long song TAGO MAGO offered and failing to do so. The other two are just okay but nonmemorable songs to put it bluntly.

Anyone that had trouble with TAGO MAGO ought to try this out as it is a safer version of CAN. All of those impressed with CAN before might find this to be a bit wimpy.
