Probably the most (justifiably) celebrated Krautrock album of all time, Tago Mago represents the apex of Can's powers. Accentuating the "mental" in "experimental, our heroes bend space and time with ample help from innovative tape loop manipulation, inverted bastardized grooves, astral guitar layers and Damo Suzuki at his peak - singing with a lazy haze of cohesive cool on parts of "Mushroom," and violently convulsing with lyrical outbursts of amazing incoherence on "Peking O." Calling this album "ahead of its time" is a well-meant injustice.
