3 stars Holger Czukay, legend and co-founder of Can, is known for years by his experiments with electronic music, rhythms,atmospheres and world music. This album is quite accessible example of intelligent electronics with vocals.

All album's atmosphere is very airy,spacey and ambient. Holger plays all instruments himself, and it's obviously different electronic devices. Usually I hate drum machines, but there is a rare example when electronic drumming is so complex and interesting, that it doesn't destroy music, even opposite - in big part this music is based on spacey,complex electronic rhythms. Possibly, the reason is Holger uses rhythms as jazz musician, playing with sounds.

The only other artist presented on this album is singer U-She. Her vocals are influenced by Mother Gong, Bjork and Nico between others. Dreamy,psychedelic,spacey,freaky - all in one.

All album sounds similar to Bjork most electronic works, but with more experimental using of electronic rhythms and minimalistic sound. Really interesting work for fans of accessible experimental electronics,IDM, intellectual trip-hop,etc.
