4 stars Well, without denying the value of the other reviews I must say that, as a first contact to Apocalypse's music, this album sounded very good to me. The tracks are very keyboard-oriented but there is space to all members show their skills without masturbatory flights. Apocalypse's music is very regressive in a sense that it didn't chart any new territories but just try to emulate the vibrant sound of the symphonic prog giants. I don't feel any Brazilian flavour in their music as we can hear in another contemporary Brazilian band as Octohpera. So I think that this album could be rated 3 or 4 stars, taking consideration that there's nothing remotely new to this music. As a presentation of Apocalypse I think that Live in Rio fulfill its mission with success, giving to the listener the desire to listen more to this band. Without any uphanism I believe that Apocalypse's music as shown in this live album is far better than any Flower Kings I have listened. Both are derivative and regressive, but Apocalypse's Live in Rio has Eloy Fritsch's work on keyboards, what is a big plus to their live performance.

3.5 stars really, what I'll up to 4.
