Great and influential album. But it just goes on too long. Some of ideas are really cool and innovative but are then squeezed of all impact until there is nothing really left for the next five minutes or so. The first half is much, much better than the second half; but this is also one of those records where different people will like different aspects of the music and the entirety of the album isn't expected to be universally loved. I personally just think it starts off with some classic material but totally loses steam in the end.

I love so many things about this album. Whether it's the moments of unbridled creativity or sheer madness, this album is an album that deserves every bit of acclaim it gets.

The first time I heard this album, it was while driving through the mountains, surrounded by fog. Aumgn and Peking O were absolutely terrifying.

One of the most pioneering albums ever to grace this planet; you can see how it's influenced our current music landscape - from Radiohead to hip-hop.
The album starts off strange and gets progressively stranger, which can only be a good thing.

Noise is used in a very unique way. The record also forgoes any conventional sense of song structure and is completely its own thing. Nothing short of revolutionary.

From daveydudely 09/22/2016 13:47
Both timeless and a product of its time, capturing the psychedelic era with primal beat and experimental sounds. Halleluwah is one of the greatest dance songs ever recorded, moves you at your core like nothing else. When I first found this on vinyl 30 years ago I was transformed, and it had been worth the wait to finally hear it.

Tago mago is the best Can album as far as i'm concerned. It's stunning from start to finish, and the fact that it's a double album gives the band a chance to really stretch themselves. Every track is superb, and, Aumgn, still frightens the life out of me today. It's just one of those records that seems to get better and better as the years go by. Kraut rock, if that's what you wish to call it, at it's best.

From souplipton 05/26/2016 03:51
Tago Mago is Can at their free-est and most experimental. With Damo Suzuki now on vocals, Can set out to record their first studio album with the new lineup. Free from Mooney's dominance, Can was free to experiment with new ideas, including non-traditional song structures, which they used on much of Tago Mago. Constructing songs from editting toegther segments of long jam segments, creating side-long songs of the band's best moments. The first disc is closer to what you'll find on Can's next couple albums, but maybe a little bit further out there. THe second disc, on the other hand is so far out there, I'm not quite sure that it's from this galaxy. I prefer the first disc overall, but the second disc is what sets this album apart. You don't need to love every moment of the seconds disc's wildness (I surely don't), but for the moments that it does come together in a way that makes sense to you (or the closest that we get to sense from that disc), it's completely worth it. Weird and totally unique, Tago Mago is an album unlike any other, and I wouldn't have this record any other way.
