4 stars Second Popol Vuh album is same electronic one, as their debut. Moogs plus African/Middle East drumming. Just two long compositions, one on every vinyl LP side ( on CD re-release there are two bonuses).

Quite static (when no drumming) electronic sounds, from deep organ to cosmic psychedelic soundscapes. Moments with drumming are different, more meditative. Possibly, main album's effect is in it's atmosphere. Because of characteristic early synths sounds, some electronic pulsation and slight Middle Eastern scent in moments, this album is great example of early electronic psychedelic music, besides of Tangerine Dream or Klaus Schulze.

Must have for early electronic music fans, great album for everyone, interested in early German psychedelic. From next, their third in line, album Popol Vuh will change their direction radically, so it is a rare possibility to hear their electronic roots.
