Boomkat Product Review:
Having originally surfaced in 1994, Can's Anthology still serves as a pretty comprehensive, wide-ranging sampler of the band's key works, and the material's never sounded better - benefiting from a beautiful remastering treatment. Spanning Can's work from 1969's Monster Movie right up to 1991's soundtrack for the Wim Wenders film Until The End Of The World this two-disc compilation takes in a variety of line-ups, with the first disc drawing from the band's work up until 1974, with particular emphasis on the Tago Mago/Ege Bamyasi era. The second disc is fairly in keeping with chronological order too, drawing heavily upon Unlimited Edition and later works from Saw Delight and the period of Can's Damo Suzuki-less reformation for Rite Time. There are a few leaps backwards however, with a couple of tracks from Future Days making a welcome appearance (namely 'Moonshake' and the sublime 'Future Days'), but broadly speaking the first disc covers most of the band's most celebrated, pioneering work, which still sounds more experimental and current than most modern rock music. Flawless material.
