5 stars In den Garten Pharaos is the second album recorded by Popol Vuh and one of their best. It is a must for those who love the German electronic scene of the seventies. From the same period,It can easily be compared to T.D "Zeit" recordings but incorporates new elements of inspiration as acoustic and tribal percussions. It's in the direct line of their first effort, very spiritual but less weird and chaotic.The title track is something of a hybrid between cosmic music and heritage of world music. It remains very spacey thanks to bizarre sounds obtained with the Moog-synthesizer. Many themes of this title will be record for the Nosferatu album. Played on a church organ, Vuh is unforgettable. From beginning to the end the melodic line is built on the same pattern, very repetitive and spiritual, ending to a state of trance.
