3 stars This is CAN in the raw, playing live and largely unedited.

There are three phases to CAN's career, and along with Soundtracks and Monster Movie, this album documents the raw energy that the early CAN displayed with such ease.

The mid period (up to Soon Over Babaluma and Unlimited Edition) is characterised by extensive editing and overdubbing of live performances.

The last period begins with LANDED and marks the band's transition into a "normal" rock band, where they used standard multitrack technology, and were largely abandoned by the driving force that was Holger Czukay.

DELAY isn't for the faint hearted, but I can see why people love this album, but it isn't a patch on the classics that would emerge in the mid period.
