Mid-era Can was for dividing fans, breaking hearts and experimenting with lots of new ideas, and Saw Delight was no exception, bringing in two new contributors to the fold -- both ex-Traffic folks -- and taking on a general, ambiguous interest in world music a la Paul Simon in his Graceland era.

Saw Delight by Can

8/10 Jack 1st February 2015

I was a little nervous about buying post-Babaluma Can records, but my fears were unfounded because they all yield pleasure and beauty to the Can fan. Saw Delight is given a miserly 2 1/2 star review in the Allmusic review of the album and it seems like we listened to two different records. I hear very cool funk rock and world beat music similar to what the Talking Heads would be doing a few years later with random radio blips and upbeat Afro pop ("Sunshine Day and Night"). This is pretty groundbreaking when you consider Paul Simon mined similar music terrain and hit massive paydirt ten years later!
