4 stars What an incredible album. Not that I didnt know that Kiko Loureiro was capable of doing such an ecletic sound: if you minimally follow Angra releases, will see that their first three albums (and especially Holy Land) is full of fusion with brazilian sounds.

But this album of Kiko Loureiros goes for another kind of stuff. Sure, brazilian motives are all spread around, but the most obvious mix is the heavy metal virtuosity of his guitar with the smooth jazz present in the first track, mainly, but in all album overall. Some of his playing remind me moments of Martin Barre, where the real thing is not solo and yes compose.

I wish all career of Kiko Loureiro were like this, because this album is great.

Not for fans of Heavy Metal, a true progressive fusion over here.

GKR | 4/5 |
