Jornal do Commercio(PE) – “In the age of faceless bands, virtually reproduced singers, and conservative pop songs with redundant lyrics, comes an album that unites music and literature, Frevo rhythm and Wagner, that unveils the link present in Mahler between the Italian Venice and Recife, the Brazilian Venice, in which are cited Blake, St. Theresa of Ávila and Count Belamorte, a bizarre poet from the state of Minas Gerais… Is there such an album? Yes. It is called Modern Tecniques of Ecstasy, by Armando Lôbo”
