4 stars 3.5 Stars, with the rounding going to 4!

Pleasantly surprised, much better than expected!! To be honest, I didn't really know what to expect from a late 80's Can album, but I can say for sure the artwork doesn't give the slightest hint to how much fun this album is, it's one you can feel they were surly having a good time laying down! There's no late 80's junk on here, this is a well constructed and played album.

The recording quality is good, clean with lots of space between the instruments, open and balanced, Holger Czukay's bass tone is lovely, Jaki Liebezeit's playing is fairly sparse and only occasionally are some sprinkles of prime Can rhythms drifting through, though he's an excellent player he plays these basic grooves with great feel! I'm a big fan of restrained guitar and there's loads of nice funk twinkled parts on here.

There's an immense control and discipline in the playing on the whole, minimalistic with everything in the mix sounding deliberate in it's usage, the players parts compliment each other greatly and no one steps on the others toes.

Definitely not an album to dismiss without giving a fair chance first!
