About this album

Tago Mago is the second studio album by the German experimental rock band Can, and was originally released as a double LP in 1971 by United Artists. It was the band’s first studio album to feature Kenji “Damo” Suzuki after their previous vocalist, Malcolm Mooney, quit the band in 1970 due to a nervous breakdown. The album was remastered and released as a SACD in September 2004, and included commentary from former Melody Maker journalist David Stubbs and Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream.

Tago Mago has been described as Can’s most extreme record in terms of sound and structure. The album has received much critical acclaim since its release and has been cited as an influence by various artists. There have been attempts by several artists to play cover versions of songs from Tago Mago. Remix versions of several tracks by various artists are included on the album Sacrilege.

    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?

    Daniel_Sullivan it's a bootleg, i have the same one. There's noticeable artifacts on the printing of the sleeve. Shame, Tago Mago will always be one of my favorites.
