5 stars A truly exceptional album in Popol Vuh's discography, not least because of the ethereal, haunting vocal contributions by Djong Yun, creating a sound that was at least a decade ahead of its time - I actually find the combination of ghostly female vocals and shimmering, delicate musical performances reminiscent of some of the work produced by Dead Can Dance or the Cocteau Twins in the 1980s. Whilst many other of the leading lights in the Krautrock genre were exploring synthesiser-dominated ambient drone works, Florian Fricke and his guest musicians apply a greater instrumental variety and let loose some exceptional performances, Conny Veit's guitar work being particularly noteworthy. A jewel in Popol Vuh's crown.
