4 stars This is the last album of the classic Popol Vuh era before starting a working partnership with filmmaker Werner Herzog. Most of the following albums will be soundtracks and few of them will be really interesting for the average proghead.

As fellow reviewer Chris Gleeson says, this is as close as Popol Vuh gets to energetic rock and there is still lots of space to fill up to get there and I am not sure I would speak of Bonham, Fripp or moon to describe this album. As with the previous albums recorded, this stays very reflective music even though Renate Knaup (ex Amon Duul II) joined the delicious soprano voiced Yun. This openly meditative music sometimes resembles religious incantations, which was a goal of Fricke (he had converted to both Buddhism and Christianism). Fricke and Fichelscher (the mainstays in the band) are at the top of their game and the percussions are astounding. However, one cannot help but think that Popol Vuh, although bettering themselves with everyone of their last four or five albums, are slightly repeating themselves.

While still a fantastic album, along with Seligpreising , Salomos and Einsjager, this is to be IMHO the last album worth investigating from Popol Vuh. Oh what the hell!! Give it another half star!!!!
