4 stars After two first Popol Vuh very electronic albums, band's keyboardist sold his first ever Moog in whole Germany to Klaus Schulze and returned to acoustic piano sound. Atmospheric, almost chamber, neo-classical piano sound in combination with Korean soprano Djong Yun's haunting voice built a basic for their third album.

That doesn't mean that band abandoned their psychedelic/krautrock field. Just sound was changed radically. Besides of piano and operatic voice, there are electric guitars, violin and brass. Down tempo, almost meditation music, still strongly based on European roots. With addition of ethnic fusion though. Ambient soundscapes are combined with almost classic piano, electric guitar plays it's jazz fusion influenced line. No traces of electronic world of two previous works.

Very elegant, dreamy and fragile music, I really like it!
