1 stars It's the first and last time the band changed radically their sound to very accessible, soft mainstream music. The album "for you and me" and "raga city" also released in the 90's announced the coming of shocking influences but the result were not as dramatic as in this derivative and poor album. When I listened to "Shepherd's symphony" I wondered if it was the right CD or if it was a joke. This album is a total disaster. I t consists of boring ambient / ethnic soundscapes turned into a very modern electronic style. The sound is very unpleasant, sophisticated, incorporated electro beats, mentioning an avalanche of pulsating rhythms which really can't work with Popol Vuh's peaceful music. We clearly understand the band's effort to convince younger listeners but all real fans of the band can only disapprove this new orientation.
