Tago Mago, 40th 
Anniversary Edition
Critical Mass
Release Date: November 15, 2011
Label: Mute/Spoon

by Mike Powell

Germany's foremost art-rockers are too often talked about as some secret key to cool, when in reality they're just a more intense Pink Floyd or Yes, plus funk and minus the fantasy crap. Tago Mago is the messy one, where ten-minute stretches of nightmare sound effects are followed by 20 minutes of caveman groove with Damo Suzuki's caveman babble to match. And for all the pretenses, the groove is what shines -- brutal, dumb, and gloriously without end.
