5 stars The reason why Nemrud so much deserves better status as an epitome of the best Turkish prog of all times is the fact that its three efforts are highly remarkable masterpieces in which complexity and beauty are taken to their maximum levels.One of the greatest albums of 2010. Yes, this does stand up to giants like Pink Floyd, Camel, and Eloy. So "Journey of The Shaman" is mostly dominated by guitars and the moog. Nemrud uses many intricate guitars that really take this album from one level of prog to the next. Mert Gocay will fill you with emotion and not just on the guitar. He does a beautiful job on all three songs, great composition. It may be simplistic but very satisfying. Mert Topel really works the Moog well on Part II and Part III. This isn't the easiest album to get into. The emphasis is on the guitars,moog and synth and of course those discrete vocals which is not abrasive.

"Journey of The Shaman'' has absolutely no weak tracks. Every song was well written and played very well. You probably won't like it at first. But, listen to me: give it a pair of spins more and it'll never leave your top ten! A concept album for the journey of your prog taste. Easily 5 stars!
