One "Monster" track makes it all worthwhile.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Soundtracks (Audio CD)
Soundtracks might be put down as just for Can completists if it were not for track 6 "Mother Sky", all 14min and 30sec of it. Some of the late Michael Karolis' finest playing is to heard on this one track together with some inspired percussion and a typical Damo Suzuki breathy-dream vocal. Priceless stuff with a killer groove. I can't believe this was recorded just for a movie!
And the rest?
2 tracks from the Deadlock movie - not typical Can and you probably have to see the movie ( If any one has?!)
Tango Whiskyman and Don't turn the light on are more typical Damo period Can - Ok, but not outstanding by their standards.
1st Can vocalist Malcom Mooney gives it some on Soul Desert. If Monster Movie was your favourite Can album then you'll want to hear this too. Finally, there is She Brings the Rain. Mr Mooney again on what might be an average walking blues song but with Holger Czukay painfully attempting to play a structured and very rigid bassline it couldn't be average if it tried - and there's some very pretty/normal guitar from Herr Karoli too. I honestly can't tell if the fiddle/viola on this is Michael again or Irmin Shmidt distorting the hell out of his Farfisa organ!
Never mind - play Mother Sky again.
