4.0 out of 5 stars Solid collection of experimental yet accessible tracks, 11 Dec 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Soon Over Babaluma (Audio CD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under-rated Can Gem, 12 April 2005

Chain Reaction is a very accessible track. Plenty of rock segways and drumming to hook the casual listener. Quantum Physics is difficult to get into, but it pays off after a few years. It is a bit like Augmn on Tago Mago. Dizzy Dizzy and the others are all great songs and easy to "acquire". I think this is better than "Future Days". Can's drummer Jaki Liebezeit is one of the best in the world, and ranks alongside Charles Hayward (This Heat) as a syncopation expert.
