4.0 out of 5 stars Experimental Heaven, 4 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Soundtracks (Audio CD)
The reason I entitled this review as "Experimental Heaven" is because Can in this album have taken some simple mainstream musical techniques and twisted them with their own unique blend of creativity to make something unlike most other bands will ever perform.

As said by others, his album is worth buying purely for the beautifully hypnotic "Mother Sky" which throughout my 25+ years interest in music, has stood out as the most mesmerising and exquisite example of an ability to take the listener to a musical realm that many bands cannot. The album does have a psychedelic undertone, but do not let that put you off if that is not your area - the basic creativity of this album makes it a many layered delight.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Alternative Psychedelic, 4 Jan. 2008
This to me is the highlight of Can's musical creations. Can offers an other-wordly style of excellent music that I have not encountered anywhere else. Landed is a beautiful mix of percussion, rhythm and subtle lyrics which provides a fresh alternative to so much music that we are all so familiar with. A lot of their other albums can be difficult for the average person to grasp, but Landed provides a more grounded blend of melody and creativity that is so rare to find these days. I remember being with friends in the middle of Wales on a frosty night listening to this from the car stereo whilst watching the stunning night sky - it was the perfect accompaniment.

If you like slightly retro, psychedelic, and very creative/intuitive music, with great ryhthms this is the one for you.
