Editorial Reviews

2011 five CD collection from the German Krautrock band containing their soundtracks to five Werner Herzog films (Aguirre, Heart of Glass, Nosferatu, Fitzcarraldo and Cobra Verde) housed in a high-end limited edition box. In addition, this exclusive box set contains a 96 page-strong booklet designed by International DoubleStandards Berlin including unseen footage and images, conflating the world of both Popol Vuh and Werner Herzog through the soundtracks to some of Herzog's most acclaimed early feature films.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's been a long time February 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a long-time Popol Vuh fan ever since I first saw Nosferatu on its first release and Fitzcarraldo (together with the making of that movie entitled Burden of Dreams, describing among other things, Mick Jagger's departure from Fitzcarraldo due to extended delays in the production). The movies and the accompanying soundtracks were fantastic. As it is with Tangerine Dream soundtracks augmenting their movies, Popol Vuh is a perfect match to Werner Herzog films. I was excited when these soundtracks were finally released in a set, bringing together the best of the early efforts of Herzog and Popol Vuh. I was not disappointed. The CDs are each housed in covers that feature the original artwork of the original releases and the hardcover booklet has some amazing pictures of the movies and of the band - background histories and commentaries. I highly recommend this set and, from what I read, it is limited to 5,000 pressings?! Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING MUSICAL LANDSCAPES February 13, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Now then....
Anyone who loves Krautrock or the sounds of Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Eno, Philip Glass or Neu! should drop everything and buy this immediately!
I discovered Popol Vuh through Werner Herzog's films and any fan of his will simply love this set of soundtracks.
The box set itself is also beautiful: Deep prussian blue box which contains each album cd in their own separate illustrated cover. A real work of art within a work of art.
There is also a fantastic full-colour booklet included.
It is, in short, a beautiful item which needs buying by anyone who loves moving and terrifying music.
GET IT.
NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heaven on Earth June 10, 2012
By JFI
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was made with real love and care. The package design is beautiful, something designed to house a very special treasure. The sound is very pure, it lets Popol Vuh's soundtracks emerge with a magnificent spiritual nakedness. I pity so much anyone who's not among the 5,000 ones to own this box set...

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding July 14, 2014
By J. Reid
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Worth every penny. This is an outstanding collection and inspires me every time I listen to it. The booklet is great as well and I am so impressed with how Werner Herzog speaks about both Florian and Kinski. All players mentioned in the book are truly remarkable people. I was very moved with this purchase.
