4 stars Great Brazilian symphonic progressive with some folk influences. This band plays prog with beautiful melodies. The standout instrument is the flute by Edgar Sleifer. He also delivers some tasty trumpet (?) which ads a nice touch. My only problem is that the keyboards can't be heard well in the mix with the other instruments. But they play more the role of a background instrument in the music. The lead instruments are the flute and the electric guitar. There is also some cello, violin, trumpet and sax. Keyboard solos are mostly occasional and short. It's the flute that rules here (played in the Brazilian tradition).

Any weak tracks can't be found but there are not any mind-blowing numbers either. It is just very good stuff all the way. If I had to pick one track it would be "Vida na Terra", a driving number and showing their symphonic capabilities at its best.

Conclusion: A very impressive debut album.
