4 stars Clearly, if you like Brazillian music...this is a CD to check out. I do, however, recommend listeners try to pick up the 2002 "inside out" version with the extra tracks. It definitely improves on the album that I would otherwise give 3 stars. "Taking The Easy Way Out" is certainly not what Mr. Hackett had done when he wrote this gem. This is one of Steve's most ethereal tunes ever written, and dare I say best vocal performance. Approach this album with an open mind as it is certainly unlike anything he'd previously recorded with either Genesis or solo. "Let Me Count The Ways" is also an excellent/fluid blues band piece that is sure to impress during any romantic moment. I'm not sure if this entire album is "prog.", but it is a great "world rock" album that sustains interest in its entirety. I would refer to Mike Oldfield's "Crises" and "Discovery" LPs for familiarity purposes. If you like the aforementioned, Steve Hackett's "Till We Have Faces" is a winner!
