3 stars Popol Vuh - Brüder des Schattens - Söhne des Lichts (1978)

This is my first Popol Vuh record, and I really did not know what to expect. First of all this record has little to do with the Krautrock movement. I had to think for a while to find a proper description of this record, but this is the best I can do.

'A minimalistic version of Tubalar Bells, an amazing recorded instrumental album with warmth repetetive harmonic structures with an almost spiritual appeal, with some world-music influences'. The extremely harmonic (dis-harmonic moments are non-existent) approach of this album turns out to be a winner. The warmth of all instruments playing the same chords is the result of cummaliteve effect of the combination of friendly wavelengths. There are few different melodies within the songs, but they all sound gentle and relaxing.

Ok, so this album does not fit perfectly in the progressive rock genre. It's atmospheric music, perhaps even sound-scape like. Some people might be bored to death by it, but to others it might have a magical appeal. It's piecefull atmospheres are welcome for sure in my living room. One thing is for sure. All instruments are played with extreme precision and the recording is amazing. It's a great album, but I won't give it the four star rating. It simply isn't very progressive. If the discription given by me and the other reviewers got you interested this album is recommended. It's has a magical appeal. Three stars.
