Can Spoon (1972)

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - Test Your Speakers -

To test rhythm and tim­ing Drum­mer Jaki Liebezeit es­tab­lishes an ir­reg­u­lar, com­plex cage for his band­mates to work within, and the re­sult is a thor­ough test of your speak­ers’ abil­ity to in­te­grate a dis­parate col­lec­tion of in­stru­men­tal strands into a co­gent and uni­fied whole. Liebezeit un­leashes a vol­ley of typ­i­cally risky fills and pads that would be tricky enough for your speak­ers to man­age, rhyth­mi­cally, on their own with­out bur­bling bass phrases, gui­tar pick­ing and gimpy key­board out­bursts con­fus­ing things fur­ther. And that’s be­fore you fac­tor in Damo Suzuki’s ob­tuse vo­cal in­puts.
