The Can record most likely to be introduced on evening TV by Fern Cotton is Flow Motion, their eighth and most pop record, insofar as it made its way onto Top Of The Pops. Krautrock as a single-producing machine, the record still offers some cuts for the out crowd who want to hear Can do Can.

Flow Motion by Can

8/10 Jack 1st February 2015

'Flow Motion' has faced harsh criticisms and I can understand why. This album sounds like Can trying to be commercially accessible. But Holger's repeatedly mentioned in his interview that it was due to the band's interest in reggae music at that time. This album still retains some of Can's whimsical/weird attributes but at the same time the music has a wider appeal. I am a huge fan of reggae as well, so I personally enjoyed this record (even the almost dance groove of 'I want more'). Just don't expect this to resemble Tago Mago or any of their old Albums. And by the way, one of the reviewers Dean Taylor, claimed that David Gilmour co-wrote 'I Want More'; it was 'Peter Gilmour'.
