4 stars Great album of a fairly unknown Brazilian band. A bit different of the rest of the groups, that appear and dissapear from 1974-1978 (before more like psychdelic, after more like new wave and pop). The difference may come from the fact that they are a lot more isolated of the great musical scene that was Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo (they're from Brasília), or may be for the fact that the recording of the album was already in 1980 (quite uncommon for such a "classic" sound a late date).

Whatever the cases, they shared virtuosity of guitar and keyboards in some parts as good as any Yes album, but differ in a little heavy weight sound in the arreanging especially when they thrown a difficult changes in tempo and mood of the songs and in the most instrumental passages. The melodic vocals reminds most the late Camel and a male version of Bacamarte and are not the strong point, but the guitar (as said, truly virtue displayed) remind me again of Bacamarte, as well as a little bit of Rush's Farewell to Kings.

Recomended for Brazilian seeking good references of music in their own country.

Its a solid 3.5, and as I have a too much soft heart, I always round the rate up: 4 stars.
