4 stars If I did not award the previous album another halfstar, I do with this one: 4.5 stars!!!

With this album (and the previous) Popol Vuh reached their apex , their peak. Very similar to Seiligpreisung and Einsjager, this is still a slight progression on the refinement of this type of near-acoustic prog (well there is plenty of electric guitars but not power chords or seering feedback-ladden solos). The is the most accomplished album yet in their typical contemplative and meditative laid-back (and very instrumental -Yun's vocals are often used as an instrument) "rock" the whole thing underlined by Indian percussions. Actually , one track is very much Indian music augmented by two guests.

This album is warmly recommended as an introduction to anyone looking to investigate Popol Vuh.
