4 stars My first Can album,I got it many years ago. The music is a bit unusual ( I can't say - strange). Very relaxed music, soft ambient sound with some almost jazzy drumming plus androidal voice of Damo Suzuki. This unusual mix ( even more unusual for 1973) sounds very interesting and isn't boring at all.

In fact ,that music is far from all other mainstream from that time, but sounds enough modern even now. In comparence with Eno ambient, there are melodies, rhythm,song structure.Differently from load and screaming space rock of that time, everything there is very gentle, all effect is not in bright colors,but in nuances.

I don't think that someone could hate it. You don't need to be a kraut maniac just to accept this album. For some it could sound a bit repetative,or even boring,but I think it isn't. It's just a rule of the formula, part of album's magic.

Not masterpiece for sure,but very competent album. I can recommend it to all progressive music fans, especialy as first steps into Krautrock.
