5 stars A futuristic, visionary, bizarre, hyper-sensibility music...WHAT A MYSTICAL SHOW! Almuadem have a lot of experimentation with sound, structure of songs, instrumentation, and message is evidenced in the album. I love all the tracks but Nymphomania is significant track because epitomizes what Almuadem is about. It runs the gamut of earthly view through all the absurd distortions that reality can manifest, pulverizes it entirely when all the Nymphs of the ages get together to party (yes you CAN dance to that beat) before flinging the doors open to a blinding white warm Heaven, the promise of illuminating our true way home. Gustavo Marques with a chaotic, thunderous complex playing and Andre Pousadas with virtuosic drumming and just listen how he handles the tricky rhythms. It's something to behold.

To finish i think this is the kind of album one listens to when they want something not as background music, not as lifesyle reinforcement, but as literature-music. ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE.
