Spin - p.87

Spin - 01/04, p.48
"...[Suzuki] mewls, whispers, moans and babbles over Jaki Liebezeit's awesome robo-funk drumming, while the other guys provide free-flying moral support..."
Uncut - p.129
4 stars out of 5 - "[T]he music explodes with all the intensity of Miles Davis' electric units of the same period."
The Wire - p.62

Can were one of the most influential bands to emerge from Europe in the 70s, and this 1972 masterpiece marked a crucial stage in the development from the edgy experimentalism of their earlier albums to the softer ambience of their later work. 'Soup' and 'Pinch' were reminders of their wilder excesses, but on tracks such as 'One More Night' and 'Sing Swan Song' they demonstrated that they could be equally inventive within tighter song structures. 'I'm So Green' and 'Spoon' were almost conventional pop songs, to the extent that the latter provided the band with an unexpected chart-topper in their native Germany.
