Liner notes from Verlag Hermann Bauer 8528:

Über diese Musik sagt der Komponist Florian Fricke: ‘Ich hatte die Vision von einer Musik der kommenden Zeit. Dies ist die Musik, die gleichsam aus sich selbst geboren wurde, der du nicht zuhören musst und sie dennoch hörst, die den inneren Menschen berührt und das ewig Wertvolle in ihm in die Gegenwart bringt. Sie verändert deine Wahrnehmung - ein neuer Raum entsteht, ein inneres Lächeln, ein stiller See. Eine Musik, die aus einer inneren Heimat kommt, die niemanden gehört und allen gemein ist - Musik, die Herzen öffnet.’

Joseph D.Rowland (Pallbearer):

"Popol Vuh is one of my favorite bands of all time. I'm not really sure how I came across Popol Vuh years ago, but they have consistently stuck with me as one of the most atmosphere-filled music groups that's able to conjure up such an incredible feeling, a meditative feeling, with simple but with awesome melodies, hypnotic". (2013)
