A classic from the band's mid period -the most inspired-, released in 1974 after "Seligpreisung", the band keeps this simple instrumentation's formula without the use of "exotic" instruments.

Overall more melodic than most others Popol vuh albums, the music builds on drum and piano, shiny and expressive guitar solos. Some pieces are in a contemplative's vein thanks to quiet piano parts and Djung Yun's help on vocals, contributing to this trademark Popol vuh's meditative atmosphere.

The long eponym piece "Einsjäger & Siebenjäger" features energetic moments, repetitive and melodic developments with many breaks, changes and accelerations, lead by bright guitar with this slightly acid flavour, lyrical and virtuoso playing.

One of the best Popol vuh albums, from the golden era.
