Very impressive debut from Can. Even greater things were to come from this band, but nonetheless this still remains an utterly distinctive ruckus ahead of its time. Repetition has never felt so good.

Mary, Mary So Contrary is solid.

Somehow I thought of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 the whole time I listened to the first track. It was almost like they watched a band movie, and then reacted to it with their instruments.

First time listening to Can. Glad there are better albums for me to check out.

"You Doo Right" is one of the grooviest sounds I've heard. The influence of this album can still be felt.

This is one of the weakest Can albums. Goes to show how awesome Can is.
