Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 16 August 2010
I wouldn't have bought this had I known it was a compilation of sorts, but since then I've been buying more Popol Vuh albums and I'm starting to wonder whether Fricke and Co ever made an album that wasn't great. I didn't really get into it on the first play, apart from 'Aguirre' which is simple but unforgettable. The highlight for me is 'Vuh'; its deep, melancholic vibe seeps into you. The weakest item is 'Spirit Of Peace' which takes just too long to build up to part 3, though the climax is wonderful. Popol Vuh's music has a spiritual quality throughout, something which is evident on their other albums. Although they are lumped into the 'Krautrock' pigeonhole, their music is, like most of that of the other artists saddled with it, quite distinct. Popol Vuh's music is hardly rock either. Although rock instrumentation is sometimes used, Florian Fricke's classical background tends to be more evident. An acquired taste, but ultimately very rewarding.
