3 stars With the previous album Aguirre , Popol Vuh started a new phase in their musical adventures. From that album on , most of their input will be soundtracks of movies , most of them for Werner Herzog films. If the music was not easy to grasp in Aguirre without seing the film , one does not have the same feeling about this second soundtrack. Cour De Verre is the name of the movie and I have also never seen it, but the music seems to stand up on its own without the pictures better than its predecessor. With the ambiances developped on this album, I was frequently brought to think of Mike Oldfield circa Incantations era. But I must say the interest of popol Vuh's music was quickly fading by this time and the fan base was changing also.

In the next years , Popol Vuh will release an impressive amount of Movie's Original Soundtrack album - Cobra Verde , Fitzcaraldo etc... and neglecting their own proper studio output that allowed them to make classic albums like Seligpreisung and Salomos. A bit of a shame.
