5 stars What a great, great album! Corima is a band that plays in the USA but actually started in Mexico. Quetzalcóatl means "feathered snake" in Nahuatl and is a god in many ancient mexican cultures, he is the main character in this album. Although there are a lot of songs, there are only 4, three of them being long suites and one 7 minute intrumental. The first suite is "Corima Iss De Hündin!", goes from song 1 to song 8 and is 25 minutes long. The other is the "Quetzalcoatl" suite, goes from song 11 to 17 and lasts 19 and-a-half minutes. All of this album is a real monster of modern Zeuhl, combined with some avant-jazz fusion parts that make it incredible. I particularily love the title track suite and Tezcatlipoca (another ancient god), which are the songs that best take Zeuhl, but man this whole record is amazing. I will give 5 stars because this band shows the potential in progressive music that my country has, the theme is really uncommon and the music is beyond great. Zeuhl at its very peak and my second favorite Zeuhl album, being beaten by Eskaton's "4 Visions" by an inch.
