    I was not expecting an accordion. It has a very sensual sound.

    When the Ancient Theme is so good, you know the rest will slap as well.

    I... teared up a little. So beautiful, so majestic, such... a masterpiece. Bring back Geoff Knorr for Civ 7, please, Firaxis!

    Portugal's Industrial Theme is now my favorite theme of the game, no joke. Sorry Ottomans, but this is the end.

    Another great set of music to finish off the expansion pass. The guitarra Portuguesa really does sound great. It’s played by Cordeone, and you can see him playing the instrument on his YouTube channel: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkrKBTBoaEtXG4gwz3owWAAAAPtaxyNlB

    The industrial era is a really nice arrangement too. My only complaint is that the ancient theme is too short!

    If you’re talking about the Renaissance theme, I’m not sure it’s an accordion, but rather the bass viol.

    Why is the Ancient theme so short? It is not even 2 minutes :(

    I think he means the Medieval Theme. :p

    Yeah, it's miles above other Ancient Themes. Shame it's so short.

    Here's a classic fado played on the Portuguese guitar (no vocals) for those who are unfamiliar with the genre and the instrument. As you can hear, Knorr really did a great job capturing the spirit and sounds of the genre!

    Very well, now that I'm finished listening...

    The Portuguese guitar is quite a fine instrument, and the ancient theme is pleasant to listen to.

    Then comes medieval. I am usually critical of medievals because overexposure to the medieval strings can be an unpleasant experience to my ears :p. However, in general, the NFP themes to be surprisingly good when making medievals, with there being cases of medieval being even my favourite of the four theme, like by Ethiopia. Well, Portugal is no exception to this rule of good medievals. The medieval strings and Portuguese guitar form a nice pair and create a magical, warming theme.

    And then started what I was curious about the most - Portuguese industrial theme. And I must say, I am very pleasantly surprised here. Measured industrial themes are a rare breed, and Portugal excels as such. I caught myself waving my finger left and right in the rhythm of it, and it certainly is a theme that had a feel of rhythmycal dance attached to it. It flows nicely, the buildup works... The flute opening, as well as the subsequent mixture of strings (which include my beloved cello) and the flute is lovely... It has a triumphant orchestral part, like all industrial themes, which does emit the feel of a mighty global empire that Portugal was, but unlike many other themes, it isn't over the top. And it has nicely implemented touches of trumpet - that's a bonus too :p. The ending is pretty, too - I like how the triumphant part is closed off by the flute playing the very same melody as at the start. I greatly enjoy this theme, from the start to the end, and I dare say that this theme just replaced Gran Colombian industrial as my favourite theme from the NFP.

    As for the atomic... Well, not the best atomic in the game, but certainly not the worst one in the game either. The piano touches in the introduction are quite to my liking, I have to say.

    What a beauty... seriously, I'm impressed with this last Civ. Everything is far better than expected (for me). I don’t know if it is their last civ for Civ vi, but if it so, what a way to finish!

    I don't think many of us were expecting it, myself included.
