5 stars This is one of the best POPOL VUH albums. Everything sounds perfect. The unique and celestial music is relaxed as usual for POPOL VUH. Texts are from the Christian Bible but the music sounds more oriental. Band leader Fricke often had the tendency to fusion Christianity with Oriental spirituality. But this is no new age music. It's folk prog at it's best! Sometimes it also rocks (slightly) thanks to drums and guitar, for example in "Selig sind, die da hungren" but the guitar sound is always clean. Pastoral acoustic passages are very frequent but there is enough diversity to keep the listener satisfied. The only drawback is the album's lenght - only a little less than 30 minutes! However, it's the quality that matters! Recommended for anyone interested in peaceful, pastoral and uplifting prog!
