What's most amazing though, is how years-ahead-of-its-time it can sound.

As I stated above, this is the best CD to buy to first experience the incredible music of Can.

That is why they are essential to anyone who considers themselves a music lover today.

As I stated above, this is the best CD to buy to first experience the incredible music of Can. Simply one of the most important rock ensembles ever, combining technology, rhythm, editing, and improvisation to create musical alchemy of the highest order. Not only does this CD contain all of the essential tracks of their first album, Monster Movie (including the incredibly hypnotic lunacy of Yoo Doo Right, the Sister Ray of art rock), but a tremendous sampling of songs from their essential early albums, many of them uniquely reedited by Holger Czukay to stand as works in their own right (e.g. the tribal climactic edit of Halleluwah). Hence, even after you fall in love with the band and buy all of their essential early CD's (up to and including Soon Over Babaluma, or maybe Landed) this CD will still stand up as a valuable part of your collection. It may in fact may be my single favorite Can CD, although Ege Bamyesi gives it a run for its money. Anyway, if you love weird, wonderful music that pulls no punches, you should check this out.

I bought this album on a friend's suggestion. I had considered myself pretty knowledgeable of bands that have been making music for 30+ years, since that's mostly what I listen to (my favorite bands include The Residents, Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Blue Oyster Cult). Yet I still had never heard of Can. I listened to a few song samples here on the site, and seemed to preferr the older songs to the newer ones I heard. So I eventually bought this particular CD. Wow, was I blown away.
The music on this compilation certainly has some elements that you'd expect from a late 60s / early 70s CD: psychadelic grooves and fusion/progressive-sounding playing. There's definitely some avant-garde stuff here too. But as for the overall sound that this band forged as their style, it sounds refreshingly unique to me. What's most amazing though, is how years-ahead-of-its-time it can sound. Songs like "Mushroom" and "Father Cannot Yell" sound like darkly fused rock/urban-beat songs you'd hear from some of America's "modern" bands. Others, like the hypnotic "Mother Sky" (my favorite) sound like they came out well after "techno" became a house-hold name. This CD is an excellent compilation of one incredible band. I can't believe so few music fanatics have heard of them.

This predominately German band was way ahead of the curve in the late 60's and early 70's. They are often credited with being the first to use tape loops and sampling. Their music simply made the most out of available technology while at the same time maintaining an organic sound. That is why they are essential to anyone who considers themselves a music lover today. Bands and musicians such as Kraftwerk, Sonic Youth, the Velvet Underground, Wire, David Byrne, John Lydon (PIL), Cabaret Voltaire, and scores of electronica artists were/are influenced by their ideas and sound. It's trance, experimental, tribal, world beat... and it's rock. Buy this album, and put on Yoo Doo Right (Track 12). Put out all the lights and find a comfortable seat. Make sure you are the only one in the room, and that your listening experience won't be interrupted. You WILL be transported. It is a profound emotional experience, time-warping and very centering. After the 20 minute track is over, start the CD from the beginning. Marvel at this music that really is unlike any you have ever heard, despite all it has influenced.

I read about Can for three years straight without ever hearing their work. I got Cannibalism 1 on the day of my high school graduation and I finally felt that my transition out of the routine drones of teenage living was finally completed. The fantastic possibilies of music exhibited by the diverse tracks are timeless.
