Prog Reviewer
2 stars I have to agree with Finnforest here - what might have been a top-notch Popol Vuh album is horribly botched here thanks to Daniel Fichelscher's cymbal-laden percussion. Not only are the drums (and the cymbals in particular) entirely too loud in the mix, too often overwhelming the rest of the music, but the style of the drumming (and some of the guitar work) is completely wrong for the material at hand - it's like Popol Vuh ended up colliding head-on with a third-rate blues-country bar band and this is the result. A crying shame, because usually Florian Fricke plus Djong Yun is a guaranteed recipe for greatness, but in this case the bizarre AOR influence brought to the table does more harm than good.
Warthur | 2/5 |
