It's a shame that it's taken 35 years for this truly astonishing LP to get the sort of recognition that it has deserved. At a recent Mojo Awards ceremony Holger Czukay and Irmin Schmidt said that the album was now selling more than it ever did in the past, helped no doubt by this quite extraordinary remastered release.

Tago Mago is put simply, a freeform adventure into uncharted sonic territory, and put next to some of the more established LPs of the 70's it is essentially a behemoth of an album that leaves them in the shadows, both in textural diversity and the sheer range of emotional weight behind it. This is the point that the band, to all intense purposes, abandoned the anchor of rock and went onto become a truly unique band. If there's any vestiges of traditional forms left, they are extinguished by the time "Oh Yeah" and "Halleluhwah" come into view. The LP is a tricky affair, helped no doubt by the awkwardness of "Peking O" and "Aumgnm", but that shouldn't put potential listeners off.
