The 1994 CD reissue adds three cuts ("Shouting Stars," "Yours & Mine," and "You're the Driver") with Michael Karoli
colleague Jaki Liebezeit
providing the thumps and bangs of outrageous percussion. The record has an interestingly stately air to it, considering Polly Eltes
' breathy, quirky vocals and Karoli
's apparent fascination with variations on reggae rhythms (not too surprising, considering the spiritual link between Can
and the output of Jamaican mixers.) The complete set would be more compelling and striking, though, if there were a little more focus -- Karoli
spend quite a bit of time simply drifting into thematic hooks, leaving the listener in limbo for too long on a regular basis. When it clicks, though, it is excellent.
