4 stars With this fourth album Popol Vuh hits their stride. Conny veit still participates to this album but as a guest but in comes the second most important Popol Vuh member after Fricke"; ex Amon duul II drummer Daniel Fichelscher. Not only will he perform most percussions but he will play guitars also.

As opposed to the previous Hosianna , this is a much more refined and accomplished album that will grow on you at each spinning in your deck. The mystical/spiritual overtones developped in Hosianna are just as strong here but less severe allowing this album to be the perfect make-out-with-your-girlfriend music (for those always stuck with listening to Mariah while getting intimate with the mate , this could be a welcome change;-). Again the highly meditative and contemplative music is very calm and soft on athmospheres but never shallow. The mix between the ethnic (mainly Indian) percussion with fairly solemn but relaxed piano and guitar lines provide a great moment of relaxation. A very even album with no weak spots but no real exceptional track either.

This fourth album although excellent and much recommended is not their best. Go on to the following album and read my review.
