Not sure where the complaints come from. I got my copy a week or so before release from Wah Wah's store in Barcelona and it sounds great.

The commenters below me should swap out their copies, I just opened (and cleaned) my copy and it sounds great. Some small pops and clicks should come out with further play.

I do agree with genezyp. I’ve just gotten a new copy of this album and gave it a spin. Alas, it has many unacceptable flaws. The record label should change the name to Wah Wah Subsonic Sound.

Great music. Absolutely terrible pressing, lots of fucking innergroove distortions. I guess it's time to look for original copy. Shame.

Originally released on Klaus Schulze's Innovative Communication label in 1981, 'Sei still, wisse ICH BIN' is Popol Vuh's 13th LP. Fricke and Fichelscher worked under the production of Klaus Schulze himself and were helped for the occasion by Chris Karrer on soprano sax, Renate Knaup on vocals and the Chorensemble der Bayerischen Staatsoper.
 
Two of its songs, Laß los and ...als lebtendie Engel auf Erden where used on the soundtrack of Werner Herzog's film Fitzcarraldo, from 1982.
 
There is also a film directed by Florian Fricke, inspired by The Bible and filmed in the Sinai Desert, which staged the music contained within this album. You can view it on youtube :

For me this album has a curio status about it. Tantric, dark, favouring ritual sonics (chanting, beating, drones) over lighter acoustic possibilities. There are some light moments (right at the end) but for the most part be prepared for something that to my ears, sounds more ominous than joyous. Maybe it was Klaus Schulze's production that left the project like being hit by a Wagnerian lead pipe? KS would have made a triple album of this material, sans acoustic guitar!
