5 stars Yes. More amazing Popol Vuh. Great melodic, ethereal, meditative, pulsing, cosmic, spiritual music. Interesting mix of Hosianna style meditative ambiance (with Conny Veit's guitar and the clarinet) and more rhythmic melodies characteristic of the direction they were headed (with Daniel Fichelscher's guitar and drumming). Only Fricke's voice here. His voice is nice but perhaps some female vocals would have been nice. Agnus Dei is not quite as good here as on the following Einsjaegar, as it could use more emphasis and fleshing out. The album is beautiful but too short, however, at only 29 minutes!!

Not quite as good as Hosianna Mantra, just slightly less than Letzte Tage Letzte Nacht, about equal to Einsjaeger & Sibenjaeger, and better than Das Hohelied Salomos and Coeur de verre - Herz aus Glas (all of which are amazing).

Let this one grow on you! It had to a bit for me.
