This is the first album Can made after the departure of their second vocalist Damo Suzuki. It's quite similar in style to Future Days but wheras in that album ambient synths and experimental rock were fused, on Soon Over Babaluma they seem to exist separately - which is no bad thing, judging by the harsh Chain Reaction followed by the quiet, ambient Quantum Physics. Michael Karoli adds violin playing to the mix on the opening track Dizzy Dizzy. On the whole, a bit less lo-fi than earlier albums. Not the Can album to buy first - go for Future Days - but one that should be taken as another accessible,interesting section of the Can discography that remains relevant. The only track which dates the album for these ears is Splash, which begins like a skewed jazz rock take on mid-sixties Miles Davis but which does contain some lovely keyboard work by Irmin Schmidt.
