Yes it can!

I think I'll be voting for Can because I can, but can I do the can-can?. 

That said, I don't know Vinegar and so I won't vote before I have had the opportunity to check out music from that.

Can has a shot indeed, but I voted for Guru Gugu.

I'll toss a pity vote to Guru Guru, and that Popol Vuh album is one of my favorites from them.

I just listened to Vinegar a little while ago and loved it.   It sounds raw and quite sloppy, but in a way I really dig. I love this kind of slightly dirty and groovy psych blues rock. Very cool one to have slipped me by.   I subsequently looked at the reviews and see it didn’t get much respect in general, a vinegar reaction one might say, but I respect your review, John. Glad I checked it out, and will again.. it stayed underground for me too long. Still, my vote is going to the amazing Tago Mago. I was tempted to go with the Popol Vuh.

Now going to play one of my favourites from Germany, Message’s From Books and Dreams.

CAN > Popol Vuh > Guru Guru

All very good albums but Tago Mago is a masterpiece

I love Popol Vuh too, but Can is in a league of its own here.

GAM - Eiszeit is a great lost album. Probably obscured a little extra by having the worst early 2000's CD-ROM styled cover imaginable. I think Günter Schickert is one of krautrock's unsung heroes. His soundscapes are always intriguing. I relistened to Überfällig the other day, after it appeared in one of your polls. The whole album is a terrific listen but I had forgotten just how fantastic Puls is.

Vinegar's only album is a charming mess. A bit amateurish and the vocals annoy me somewhat. But the album ends with a genuine kraut-masterwork in Fleisch... which almost makes up for everything

I notice how nuts some of you are over Guru Guru, but I've always found them quite underwhelming. Guess I'm simply not too crazy about heavy guitar jams with extended soloing. The kraut - or any other music I do enjoy are rarely about that at all.

I'm surprised at the votes for UFO I thought it would be Popol Vuh as the runner up.
That Guru Guru album was my first from them and I thought they were so bad ass. An instrumental album that's powerful, heavy and dark. Ax Gerich is all over this with his Hendrix inspired guitar. And that album cover is like visual static. Of course once I checked out subsequent albums I discovered Mani is a clown and they use a lot of humour in their music.
That's my favourite Popol Vuh album and about my third different favourite from them over the years. It just sounds different sound-wise at least after listening to Seligprseisung recently a prior favourite.

I hoped someone might mention Vinegar but wasn't expecting this. I have the Garden of Delights re-issue with lots of pictures and info. They mention that when they formed they named themselves Vinegar because they wanted to play music that was hard to digest in opposition to the sweet stuff others were playing. The violin is a nice touch.
Book Of Dreams is a good one I'm sure you enjoyed.

I have Gunter on this list three times including this band GAM. Apparently this was restored and edited by Alan Freeman from Cosmic Egg and he came up with the cover art.LOL Julian Cope praised GAM's 1976 sessions saying they blew his mind.

Can were like a "mighty pulsing organism". And this is them at their most adventerous including that album cover of the guy coughing out his brains. Oops.

Ah, so he's to blame for it himself:). What was he thinking? I do occasionally judge a book by its cover (there's just too much available out there, I have to filter out some things somehow), so I wouldn't have given it the time of day - if I wasn't already aware of Günter Schickert. I mean who wouldn't be more intrigued by a Cosmic Jokers, Ash Ra Tempel or an early Amon Düül II-album?
