10 Songs, 2 Hours 1 Minute

EDITORS’ NOTES

Krautrock’s most rhythmically obsessive band never sounded as out of their heads as on this 1971 album—and almost nobody since has either. “Paperhouse” opens things up, alternately riding the tide and blasting into the atmosphere, while “Bring Me Coffee or Tea” sounds downright agitated. The result remains mind-boggling as the band trances toward eternity under psychedelic mantras, and splices mistakes and rehearsals into montages, syncopated excursions, and pure noise on experiments like “Peking O” and the extended jams “Halleluhwah” and “Aumgn.”

El Chulo de la Muerte ,

A journey to rock/pop/jazz timelessness

This music flows, tansforms, samples, sings, travels, folds, grows. It has great beats, great riffs, beautiful sounds, crazy sounds, sexy bass flows, lyrical guitar lines, play ful, freaky, wild, passionate vocals. Its heavy, its trippy, its a landscape, its a movie, its a journey. Complex but fun music, surprising,challenging, weird, artsy, soulful, ambitious, handmade, musical, total, past present and future.

Stands up so well 40 years later

Can’s music sounds like it could have been made in 2015. Spoon (the song) is a sprawling psych-fest that’s like Neil Young overdriving Daft Punk. So good.
