which do you guys consider to the best?

I recently got Ege Bamyasi from a friend and can happily say ive heard all of the original 4. Out of them I like Bamyasi the best. Tago Mago is really good but i dont like those long sound effects tracks at all. Bamyasi is tight and doesnt waste a second. It even has this great freakout kind of thing on "soup".

Also I feel like Monster Movie shoudl get some more of a mention, thats a really good record. It has the original singer Malcolm Mooney and has a bunch of velvet white light/heat era distorted jams on it mixed with a sense of krautrock.Its a classic album.

"Tago Mago is really good but i dont like those long sound effects tracks at all."

Which is why it takes all kinds I suppose. I LOVE those tracks, and to me, that's what Can at their best is all about. Tago Mago is THE Can album for this fan.

I love all of the above-mentioned, but I would have to say that Future Days is my favorite. I can listen to that album for hours on end and not get bored of it. A perfect, transcendant piece of music.

Soon Over Babaluma is great too. Shame it doesn't get enough mention.

I don't know them so well, hence won't vote.

Tago Mago really pleased me. I heard it a couple of years after Happy Mondays were on top - how they took their inspiration from Halleluwah.

I had a tape of a late album, with Beyond This Limit There Is None.
I understand it's not one of their best, still, even though the tape has disappeared, it's easy to remember, and I liked the way it sounded.

I've taken close looks at the Soundtracks album, for I'm a fan of one of the films they played for, Deep End, and it has that grrrreat song, Mother Sky.

I'll be checking this thread.

I'd say Ege Bamyasi but I like them all from that period almost equally. Ege wins though, if only because it's such a total groove-out motherfucker of a record that can be played to soundtrack almost any ocassion.

Although it was released later, Delay 68 is a great collection of early stuff that also rarely gets a mention.

Agreed that Soon Over Babaluma is underrated; a great album.

Ege Bamyasi

there's 4 that could be my favourite, but that's the one I think I listen to most.

Ege, cuz it's so groovy, and my clear green vinyl copy is cool. I might like Tago if I had it.

Tago Mago. I haven't heard Eggy Biryani, and Future Days and Soundtracks earn a joint second. I'm yet to adore Monster Movie.

Tago Mago for me with Ege a close second. Those two are far and away the best two Can records. They did quite a lot of guff to be fair. I could never really get into Future Days or Monster Movie either for some reason.

Tago Mago. Following closely behind that would be Ege.

I'd say Tago Mago if it wasn't for "I'm So Green" off Ege Bamyasi. That pushes Ege Bamyasi slightly ahead of Tago Mago.
