Arrigo Barnabé - Cidade Oculta (original soundtrack)

This time, our great composer Arrigo Barnabé shows his talent writing the music for a brazilian b-movie starring himself as a main character. The album wasn't succesful as his previous two masterpieces, but it's still clear that if someone loved the unique sound of his past works, Cidade Oculta would be a nice try. Arrigo's work always had a storytelling thing. Clara Crocodilo was a concept album and a musical play. Tubarões Voadores came with comic strips about the album theme, similar to the giant monster on Clara Crocodilo, but the release topic are "flying sharks". Writing for a movie wouldn't be so different. Actually, it is better than loads of Goblin soundtracks. It features songs from his spin-off avant-post-punk project, Patife Band (their LP has some good tracks too). The music is closest to the previous album, mixing 80s music with his early RIO tendencies, dodecaphinism and epileptic lyrical plots. Have fun!
