5 stars I'm definitely biased here as I view Can (an acronym for Communism Anarchism Nihilism allegedly) as the most important band of all time in the entire universe and this to be the ultimate pinnacle and high point of all of their legendary recorded output. So why doesn't every reviewer give this five stars - in fact why doesn't every reviewer give it at least six stars? The only plausible explanation in my view is that these are people who are sleepwalking through life. Sure, the awesome pounding of 'Yoo Do Right' and other tracks on 'Monster Movie' is more primal and trance-inducing, the experimentalism-meets-pop in a krautprog setting of 'Ege Bam Yasi' is more dynamic and varied, and the whole of 'Tago Mago' is an extended blissed-out trip which not only sums up the experience of the acid- crazed West German hippie scene of the early '70s while still managing to prefigure punk rock, but 'Future Days' is something different altogether. On those other albums I mentioned, Can were stood staring at the stars, awestruck and spellbound. On 'Future Days' they managed to actually pay a visit to those stars - and record for all of posterity the sounds that they heard while there.
