CD Reviews

If your life is mostly weird---this is the soundtrack to you

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Holger Czukay invented sampling...there may be others who make this claim, but he's the dude. This album is a classic piece of beautiful music. Relaxing and unnerving at the same time. Scary and comforting. This album is great to drive to, talk to, play at parties...it is all around great music. Although this album is less known than Movies, the release with Persian Love...it is the superior piece. Listen to it...change your way of thinking. Learn to love Holger...the nicest genius in Rock & Roll."
Playful (and experimental) fun!

"Czukay's second post-Can release is notable for the amazing 'Ode to Perfume', a 14+ minute ride that starts off with a chop-suey of 'Suspicion' and leads into this...familiar?...melody. On this, Holger's refined the methods he first explored in Can and improved on on "Movies". The shorter cuts are also rewarding and weird, with the eerie title cut, the mock-scary 'Witches Multiplication Table', and a couple of interesting workouts on 'Two Bass Shuffle' and 'Hiss 'n' Listen'. This, or the equally-skillful "Rome Remains Rome" are good start-points for looking into Holger Czukay's solo work."
First two tracks are great, last 4 are poor

"I have a correction to make in my previous comment, the great tracks are: Ode to Perfume & Fragrance (they make up the first side of the record and sound like one track). The title track and Witches' Multiplication Table are terrible. Two Bass Shuffle is dull and Hiss N Listen is OK."
