SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Content Development & Krautrock Team
3 stars Welcome to Czukay's unique and fantasist musical universe. Czukay's first solo album after his departure from Can. Recorded with the collaboration of Can's family members (Irmin Schmidt, Michael Karoli) this album features 4 original, very distinct, intriguing songs which develops Czukay's aptitude to combine alternative sounds to synth / guitar experimentations (from world to a funk, jazzy felt). Taken from diverse sources (TV, radio...) many electronic collages & samplings enrich the compositions and give to them something special, rather unconventional. Discreet, floating pop vocals accompany the instrumental sections. The sound of the album is still fresh & modern. All tracks include a lot of changes and progressions in themes and materials. A few of them have a nice, satiric, hilarious flavour as in the funkadelic & rhythmical "Cool in the Pool" . "Oh Lord give us more money "is my favourite song on this one; a personal, fuzzy, detached and jazzy tune. "Persian Love" is directly influenced by Arabic music with traditional vocals and percussions augmented by different electronic samples. A complex album which needs several listenings before giving a proper judgement! Just be careful, this recording has its soft moments. For prog-heads I warmly advise the revolutionary "Canaxis".

3 stars On Hoger Czukay's solo albums you can hear the elements that he brought to Can. With his departure, most of the interesting embellishments seemed to vanish from their recordings. this was Czukay's first album after leaving the group, and the Can sound is still quite evident (it helps that Jaki Liebezeit plays drums throughout and Michael Karoli and Irmin Schmidt play on Oh Lord Give Us more Money.

Cool In The Pool would almost be pop, if it wasn't for all of the odd sounds Czukay throws in. The above mentioned Oh Lord Give Us more Money is a spacy little piece. Persian Love is a pleasant little song that manages to mix Middle Eastern themes with what sounds like a Carribean inspired guitar. And Hollywood Symphony is a laid back but typically weird groovy song.

So if you're a Canatic, I'd recommend this album

5 stars An extraordinary and virtually unclassifiable piece of work, the second solo effort from Can bassist-and-founder Holger Czukay positively brims with technical assurance and a luminous, multi-genre vibrancy rarely found in modern popular music. Essentially a mixture of samples and beats combined with a world fusion aesthetic, much studio fiddling and a genial dash of welcome humour, 'Movies' proves a spectacular fusion of stylesa nd arguably the key work of its creator. Already partly-responsible for creating some of the most original and brilliant music of modern times during his time with Can, 'Movies' was actually Czukay's second solo effort, coming a full decade after 'Canaxis', his bizarre and occasionally beautiful debut from 1969. Whilst that album - which was also pieced together from various scraps of samples and radio recordings - proved a somewhat difficult listen, 'Movies' is anything but. Humorous, catchy and utterly fascinating, this the kind of album that showcases the right kind of curious experimentation, with Czukay leading the listener through a merry dance of sounds, textures and styles without ever forgetting the key rock music ingredients. Featuring four tracks - including the seminal ethnic electro-swirl of 'Persian Love' - 'Movies' is that rare beast: an album that truly lives up to all the hype. Outstanding. STEFAN TURNER, STOKE NEWINGTON, 2013

5 stars Oh, my God, this is Heaven, which has nothing to do with 7-11. This is a 4.5 kind of deal, but five stars is just as fair, especially since I don't see my calculator having a 3 in the integer part. So, basically, we have this veteran bass guitarist/sound painter and a bunch of guys who altoge ... (read more)

3 stars A sprightly and bouncy little album by 'Can' front-man Holger Czukay. One thing you certainly can't call this is minimal. 'Movies' is jam packed with early sampling techniques, some Holger vocals, a very 'Can' like bass and multiple guitar sounds provided by Michael Karoli. This is the most ... (read more)

4 stars This is a very good krautrock-experimental album with a strong use of electronics. All familiar with Can's discography may notice some similarities (Schmidt and Karoli are involved here), but it's not dominant and here is a unique work.
