Popol Vuh - Seligpreisung (1973)

The fourth album from this German band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, harpsichord, bass, tambura, oboe, drums, congas and piano.
Two extra musicians added soprano vocals and violin.

I have reviewed their first three albums and have never really found them that interesting despite of very high ratings in ProgArchives and other places. Their kind of music does not really interest me.

This album takes the band to a folk-music and classical music, in short, baroque music part of ambient krautrock.

There is a lot of piano and half-acoustic guitars here with some drums and congas too. There is also some voices too.

The music is very ambient and baroque. Very pedestrian. It builds a rather melancholic mood with a couple of more dynamic parts in the middle of this album.

This album is half an hour long and has only sporadic good music. It is a decent to good album and nothing more than that.

2.5 points
