Popol Vuh - Aguirre (Soundtrack)

Artist: Popol Vuh
P: 1976 / 1999
The title track is the ubiquitous soundtrack for Werner Herzog's classic film Aguirre, the Wrath of God, an excellent movie about a doomed party of conquistadors gradually swallowed up by an uncaring jungle. Fricke created here a transcendent masterpiece of ambience; seriously some of the finest mellotron work ever recorded.

Popol Vuh - City Raga

Artist: Popol Vuh
P: 1995

There were different phases of Popol Vuh concept development.
Ambient with elements of ethnic music (long before these genres were invented)["Affenstunde"; "In Den Gärten Pharaos"; "Aguirre"]; romantic meditative ballad rock with classical and Oriental influences ["Hosianna Mantra", "Das Hohelied Salomos"], raga rock with pepetitive choral chants ["Letzte Tage - Letzte Nächte", "Sei Still, Wisse I'H BIN"]... By the early 90s Florian Fricke, leader of the band, understood that his old records couldn't impress young listeners (and the main listener was his own daughter), so he decided to adjust his music to the tastes of new generation of listeners, who listened to Future Sound of London, Enigma, Deep Forest etc. With the help of young musician Guido Hieronymus he recorded this album - "City Raga". Voice of Mexican singer Maya Rose, samples of ethnic songs, electronic beats and rhythms... It was like return to the roots of Popol Vuh (electronic music, ethnic elements) but in other epoch. The album is quite easy listening and the positive energy of Florian Fricke is here. Slow track "Last Village" could remind you of "Aguirre" theme. It was the last album with guitar playig by Daniel Fichelscher ("Morning Raga").
If you are fan of Popol Vuh sound of the 70s-early 80s - simply pass by this album.
If Popol Vuh is interesting for you as a concept - try to listen to "City Raga" and you would find much interesting moments here.
If you like music in style of Deep Forest, Enigma, Baco de Gaia - this album was recorded especially for you.

Popol Vuh - Fitzcarraldo (Soundtrack)

Artist: Popol Vuh
P: 1982 / 1992
This is the High Tide label version with different track lenghts.
Originally released in 1982, the soundtrack to yet another of Werner Herzog’s films, Fitzcarraldo is perhaps the most bizarre and provocative of all Florian Fricke’s film scores. Fitzcarraldo is the story of an opera house being built in the South American jungle for an appearance by Enrico Caruso. Yet Fitzarraldo’s music is not what one might expect given the film’s circumstance; it is music of and about deep contrast, with Caruso’s rich voice interplaying with the Popol Vuh sound. Fitzcarraldo is a true reward to all Popol Vuh and Krautrock fans alike.

Popol Vuh - For You and Me

Artist: Popol Vuh
P: 1991

1991’s For You And Me is one of the most beautiful albums in the last working phase of Popol Vuh. Written and recorded in the time of the first war in Iraq, the album stands as a Popol Vuh devotion to freedom in the world, more international understanding and tolerance beyond cultural differences. For You And Me is a positive celebration of world music, one which finds it’s influence constantly shifting from African, Irish, South American etc. flavours and is among the richest and most diverse in the Popol Vuh catalogue. As with past releases, Florian Fricke is again joined the unique vocal stylings of Renate Knaup-Aschauer. The bonus track is an unreleased piano version of the song OM Mani Padme Hum 3 played solo by Florian Fricke.

Popol Vuh - Nosferatu (Soundtrack)

Artist: Popol Vuh
P: 1978 / 2004
The new issue of Nosferatu contains more than 20 additional minutes of material left off the original release and for the first time appears as the complete soundtrack in the correct running sequence. Nosferatu contains four pieces which rank among the best in the Popol Vuh catalogue, thanks to a serene, mystic, deeply personal stance that basically transposes Hosianna Mantra into gothic music.

Popol Vuh - Sing, for Song drives away the Wolves

Artist: Popol Vuh
P: 1993
Nowhere in all of Popol Vuh's releases is East Indian fusion more apparent, and more wonderful, than on this album and its earlier incarnation. On this release, however, some of the purity of that earlier vision has been lost and the tracks overlaid with keyboard harmonics on the beauty of the compositions themselves.
These are dancing pieces (not pieces to dance to necessarily) full of worshipful wonder for the mysteries of Nature.
Remixed & recorded at New African Studio, Munich, Dec. 1992.
Track 8 was originally titled "Einsjäger - Siebenjäger" and produced 1974 (therefore no composing credits are given).

Popol Vuh - Tantric Songs / Hosianna Mantra

Artist: Popol Vuh
P: 1981 / 1991
This is the version, where the 2 albums are released together on one CD.
An album that we must listen with closer eyes because it'a a meditation progressive music. Some piano and a calm female voice give a strong music effect ina psichedelic space rock vein but with a strong classic influencies. Everithing is calm, the guityar, the voices , percussion, but this is not a album with orient and Indian influencies. We find a west context in this album. Quite good and quite calm, this masterpiece from Germany it's very good to listen after the stress or in the end of the day. Higly recomended for people that like psichedelic space rock and want start a discover of the sounds of this work, in a calm, balanced and not boring album 5 stars of cours.
