This Gila concept album is dedicated to the Indian American's extermination. Strongly Popol vuh influenced thanks to Florian Fricke's presence (playing mellotron and grand piano). Conny Veit plays guitar, flute, vibraphone and moog while Sabine Merbach is on vocals.

It's not space rock here, but rather psyche folk. The first piece ("this morning") is beautiful, ethereal but dynamic and positive, with beautiful spiritual lyrics, related to man's harmony with nature. The second one, ("In a sacred manner") is in the same vein, with lyrics still related to spiritual life ("In a sacred manner I live, to the heavens i gaze"). These two pieces features excellent guitar, nice breaks with aerial vibraphone flights and glittering cymbals. The album also features world/tribal influences and vocals, like in the dark and intriguing "Little smoke".

Overall, certainly not a masterpiece, but another genuine german psyche folk album.
