Das Hohelied Salomos - Popol Vuh (1975)

"Das Hohelied Salomos ('the high song of Solomon') is the 6th LP by German bliss merchants Popol Vuh. Released in 1975, it finds the band straddling the line between earlier more electronic work and later Herzog soundtracks and new age meanderings. What we have here is guitar and vocal heaven, easily the most Dead-like of all the Krautrock canon. PV by this point had found a direct route to satori bliss via endless harmonious overdubs, making for a deep and, dare I say, relaxing final product. ..."
