3 stars "Soon over Babaluma" is another product from CAN golden era (not at so high level than its predecessors ("Future days" or "Tago Mago", for example...). As a big fan of the famous krautrockers, the music from this album is rather complex, a mix between psychedelia, groove and even proto-trance music. Michael Karoli' s strange voice is a landmark on the first and the last two tracks ( I miss a little bit Damo Suzuki's voice, however- that's the situation, IMO, Suzuki had a big impact in the band!). Irmin Schmidt crying voice on "Come sta, la Luna" is another piece of art. "Splash" is a good instrumental song, very nice with a good violin and guitar work! For me, the favourite tracks are the last two "Chain reaction" and " Quantum physics". Interesting percussion work, combined with a hypnotic rhythm, everything ending in last four minutes of ambient sound and strange noise from the space! Great final of an album!

3 stars only!
