Mooney shared the same offbeat concept of lead vocals as his successor, Damo Suzuki. The big difference is that Mooney was an expatriate American and spoke English as a first language, meaning you can actually make out what he's "singing" (reciting might be more apt!) Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Damo Suzuki's work with the band, but it's cool to hear the vocals so upfront and lyrically discernable on a Can CD. Mooney tosses off terrific little poetic non-sequiters like the one I used in my review title all over this album.
Elsewhere, guitarist Michael Karoli, keyboard player Irmin Schmidt and bassist Holger Czukay were playing a lot rougher and more psychedelic than later albums, while Jaki Liebezeit was his usual precision-controlled monster self on drums. This was a sound that the band would continue through tracks like "Mother Sky" and the Tago Mago extravaganza, before abandoning it for a more ambient direction.Read more ›
