5 stars In den Gärten Pharaos...this is an album for the ages. The crowning achievment for Popol Vuh, and one of the greatest examples of the sounds of transcendence inherent in Krautrock. The first piece, also named In den Gärten Pharaos, is a magnificent exploration of electronic ambiance and ethnic percussion, it has such texture and power that everytime i listen to it i get lost in my own thoughts. It really gets you there, on the shores of the mighty Nile gazing upon the glory that was Giza. The second movement, the cryptical Vuh, is a mysterious ambient track, i cannot help to get an ominous feeling of awe as my mind drifts through the astro-planes that this piece holds within. Images and scenes of the ultimate ascendancy of the old egyptian ways, beyond death and through the stars to be one with the mighty Ra. Dammit, i got all poetic again...nevertheless HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
