5 stars Excellent. Beautiful, majestic music. It is just absolutely amazing how two people could create and perform a 20-minute piece of music so elaborate and moving as the title track (plus occasional vocals). How could they create such a dynamic track with so much energy and emotion by doing successive, separate, overdubs of different instruments? The track takes a few listens for its structure to fully solidify, btw. Lots of subtlety. It only ever sounds unsure of where it's headed for about 15 seconds from 8:20 to 8:35, but then suddenly catches a strong direction.

Daniel Fichelscher was 20 or 21 when this album was recorded, and he plays rhythm guitar, lead and 2nd lead guitar, drums, and percussion. Wow.

All tracks are great. Side A sounds slightly disjointed and over time parts begin to sound a little tiresome-still great, but just a little lacking in dimensionality (with Danny doing almost all the playing and his multi-tracked guitar being especially prominent here). There was a time not long ago when I preferred side A.

4.75

This may be the most energetic Popol Vuh has sounded, and it is the closest the came IMO to British-styled progressive rock, though they really don't sound like any British bands at all.
