5 stars This review is based on the new 2006 Digipack CD release .

So, finally someone in the label Som Livre Haas awakened and included the there songs from the Single "Cavaleiros Negros" as bonus in the "Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol" Album !! Mutantes was one of the first bands to start making Progressive Rock in Brazil, by 1972, a very good prog song was released in the "Mutantes e Seus Cometas no País dos Baurets" with 12 minutes long . In that time the live shows was very progressive too, much more then their studio work . In 1973 Mutantes recorded an album called "O A e o Z", but the label chooses not release this work, because they considered that work "too Yes Like" ! So, in 1974, with new label, new line-up and after 2 years of silence, "Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol" ( Everything Haas Been Made By The Sun ) are in the stores !!! !!!UAU!!! A very beautiful open cover, and all the tracks !!! The impact at the time was tremendous .... No one ever head so good Progressive Rock made in Brazil before ! The album sold more than twice off the predecessors ... Now, after some historical notes, let's go song by song . 1 . "Deixe Entrar um Pouco Dágua No Quintal" , a good choice to open the album, powerful, complex, with all group members showing what they can do, particularly I like the heavy drums From Ruy Motta, very like Ian Pace . 2 . "Pitagoras" , an instrumental piece composed by the virtuoso keyboardist Túlio Mourão, for me the best song in this album, a very complex arrangement almost mathematical, with Guitar and Sinths dueling all the time ! Beautiful .... 3 . "Desanuviar" is a delicate peace, with moog inviting to trip between clouds, very atmospheric mood . 4 . "Eu Só Penso Em Te Ajudar" opens the side b of original Album, is a more rock oriented, with some prog colors here and there ... 5 . "Cidadão da Terra" , one of my favorites, begins with heavy and complex arrangements, then changes to a conventional prog song, good to be played at radios . 6 . "O Contrário de Nada é Nada" is a Pure rock and roll song . 7 . "Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol" the song that named the Album, a pure Symphonic Progressive piece, very good ! And now, the bonus, this tree songs are included in a Single, recorded in 1975, but release just before "Ao Vivo" Album, probably because some financial issues the band had with the label at the time . This Singles was really rare and hunted by every Brazilian Prog fan, the reason is the main song is probably the best Progressive song Mutantes ever made ! 8 . "Cavaleiros Negros" ( black Knights ) is amazing !!! Very rich keyboard work from Tulio Mourão ( later he will work with Milton Nascimento ) a very strong rhythm section and Sergio Dias showing all your virtuosos . The lyrics ( in Brazilian Portuguese ) is inspired by the nazgull from The Lord of the Rings, until I know is the first prog lyric in that vain witch is very popular today, but in 1975 it was not . 9 . "Tudo Bem" is a pure rock and roll song . 10. "Balada Do Amigo" more acoustic, almost a pastoral song . It is the last studio record from Mutantes, after that only the live album "Mutantes ao Vivo" was released which is a Live record. The band split out int 1978 .
