The Politics of Ecstasy is the second full-length studio album by Thrash/Power Metal band Nevermore. It was released in 1996. The album is named after Timothy Leary's book of the same name. The first chapter of that book is entitled "The Seven Tongues of God", which is the title of the first song on the album. There is a spoken word sample in the track "Next In Line" from the Adrian Lyne movie, Jacob's Ladder. All lyrics written by Warrel Dane; all music composed by Jeff Loomis.

Beyond repair, down in despair Our fathers left us nothing Choking on the influx of technology I realize the politics of ecstasy And we can't change what's in stone, we've been had. Injustice to the masses Destroy the land and crush the poor The pigs are fueled by greed, political ways obscene Our fathers left corruption in this dead world. Beyond repair, down in despair Our fathers left us nothing Choking on the puke of their industry Regurgitated propaganda ministry

The Politics of Ecstasy is the second full length release by Nevermore. This would be the last album to feature rhthym guitarist Pat O'Brien, as he was recruited by Cannibal Corpse to record Gallery of Suicide. O'Brien's death metal background contributes to making this one of the heaviest albums out there. Another aspect of this album that places it head and shoulders above the rest is balance. In the midst of the chaos that is The Politics of Ecstasy, Nevermore found the perfect niche for a power ballad, The Passenger, and a brief instrumental, Precognition. The latter displays more emotion and taste within its short two-minute length than most albums. A perfect example of Dane's awe-inspiring lyrics would most likely be The Tiananmen Man.
The Politics of Ecstasy is the second full length release by Nevermore. One question you might ask about this album is "What makes this so special" It can't be classic.
