Can is better but they don't have any songs as good as Makeshift Swahili

This Heat predates and prefigures much of what would become creative standards for my favorite music by a good decade-plus.

Can still wins.

CAN, if only because they are partially responsible for This Heat.

I've said this before, but my iPhone has the following playlists:

Germany
Jamaica
DJ Screw
Fripp/Eno
This Heat

That's it.

I'll take Can ten times out of ten.

I don't like second guessing people, but have fun dancing to those two joyous This Heat albums.

"Hello person that I love dearly. Shall we put on Deceit and shiver in tandem?"


Yes. All else being equal (and these two are close), I'll take the music that has strong (even dominant) ecstatic elements in it.

Yes. The Lost Tapes matters a lot.

Can for everything they did up to and including Future Days. Deceit is easily as good as any Can album though, and if This Heat had put out more material this'd be even harder.
