I was into it for the first half then it all went downhill with Aumgn. It picks up again with Bring Me Coffee or Tea, but by then the damage is done. On top of all that, it's just too long.

"Tago Mago" is eclectic, energetic, daring and incredibly far out. I absolutely adore this record and I love returning to the weird and wonderful world that it creates for just over an hour. This is definitely an all-timer, the very apex of the krautrock movement and of rock in general really because through Can's restless experimentation spanning many tones and rhythms, they create an absolute head-trip that may take a lot of time for one to comprehend it all.

I enjoy how dynamic and chaotic this is, but I need to re-listen to it a few more times. Still prefer Ege Basyami, but this is pretty good.

First time through the first half is insanely great. Gets a little tedious with the longer tracks. On second listen, didn't really hit me at all.

Words don't do this record justice. Drums and funky psych grooves do.

I listened to this album and the first one i didn't realize what exactly the bands wants from the person who should hear it.

So I found some rezessions about this album. And 1 of them told me to listen to the complete album. And the other one tolds me the second time you listen to this album it will not hurt your ears any more.

And that's it. It is a really impressive artwork of music. I like this album more and more after hearing it many times.

One of the most influence bands in germany. Great Work for eternity

To me, the other albums in my top 10 are wintery or autumnal sort of affairs, all leave-less trees and cold white light piercing through clouds. Tago Mago is my summer album, a zesty, glued together work of strange, bare funk played with both fruity precision and Velvets-esque freedom.
