  • Think about Aumgn as a conceptual piece. Czukay once said tago mago sounds like a trip from light to darkness and then light again. It's an eletro-acustic experience on early dark ambient. First come the dogs barking and then the drumming. As mind blowing as krautrock can be!
  • Brilliant from start to finish. I prefer Future Days, but Tago Mago has earned its lofty critical status. This is probably Jaki's finest hour (there are some parts of "Halleluwah" that literally had my mouth hanging open in amazement the first time I heard the song) and Damo's as well.
  • I can't get into Aumgn. The rest is flawless though. [3]
  • Абсолютный мастерпис.
  • A real treat for the imagination and the ears.

  • I always come back to Tago Mago--it will always be the best album IMO.
  • "Halleluwah" is in my view probably the ultimate Can song. Just an incredible, epic groove from start to finish, with some absolutely amazing drumming from Jaki. Very rarely do I say I wish a song that runs 18 minutes was actually longer, but in this case I mean it.
  • Before listening: Damn, why is this so long? After listening: Damn, why isn't this longer?
