After 40 years, Popol Vuh’s 1972 soundtrack to Werner Herzog’s Aguirre, released originally in 1975, is available to the public again. This release of the hypnotic and engrossing soundtrack to that dystopian and intense film shows how good the music was: uplifting with an underlying sense of dread, but, thankfully, not as terrifying as Klaus Kinski. Also features a bonustrack.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 8th September 2016
This was my first introduction to Popol Vuh and the work of Florian Fricke. I was particularly interested in it because I had seen the Aguirre movie and was familiar with Werner Herzog's other films. I was also interested in hearing the 'choir organ' which is essentially a Birotron-type instrument - a 1970's keyboard that plays tape loops for every key. The music is an essential partner to the great cinematography of this movie, and the combination of these two elements along with Herzog's directorial pacing make this album worth having.
