Review by Lewian
2 stars This is from a Can fan writing my first Can review, and the summary of this review is: I've got this single, you don't need it. Silent Night is a Can cover of the christmas song Silent Night. It is instrumental, faster than the christmas original is normally sung, and the rhythm section does a fairly fancy job as always. I guess this is about what you need to know about this single. It's a joke really. Probably they took maximum a day to do this and thought "let's see whether people in christmas mood buy it". The B-side is Cascade Waltz which is on "Flow Motion" and which I found pretty annoying there already. I'm really feeling generous giving this two stars but then this single is not to be taken seriously so I won't offend any band member.

Haha, why on earth am I starting here reviewing Can? Because I like to write things that are not already in lots of other peoples' reviews. Nobody has reviewed this single yet so I do it. I like the band anyway, despite this being forgettable.
