Prog Reviewer
3 stars Popol Vuh's soundtrack album for Heart of Glass, like his previous Werner Herzog collaboration (Aguirre), collects a small number of tracks used in the film in question and pads out the running time with other tracks recorded from around the same time. Once again, the shimmering, ethereal guitar of Daniel Fichelscher produces gorgeous walls of sound that the listener can lose themselves in, and Florian Fricke's genius for producing delicate, flowing, spacey tracks is proved. The lack of vocals is a bit of a shame, but the instrumental material here is more than good enough to make up for the lack of Djong Yun on the better tracks. At the same time, the album as a whole is a bit hit and miss, with less cohesion than previous Popol Vuh releases and at points it feels like Fricke and company are simply going through the motions.
Warthur | 3/5 |
