5 stars I still can't wrap my mind around the fact that such a masterpiece came from my country. Musically speaking, Brazil is ruled by a music producer called Som Arte, which makes things such as Progressive Rock quite difficult to happen around here. Being able to pull such an album with Som Arte, before the Internet came along, is worth a couple listens.

The concept of the album is somewhat vague, but from my interpretation of the lyrics it deals with an apocalyptic, after-war and after-alien invasion world. It tries to portray the invasion (UFO), some mystic creatures along the way (Smog Alado), hope riding along everything (Pássaro de Luz) and a couple more things. And it does it Astonishing-ly (pun intended) well.

The Symphonic instrumentation always present (something you really rarely get in Brazilian music), like the keyboards in UFO, the catchy acoustic guitar riffs, combining Brazilian folk with international Prog elements seen in big bands like Genesis and Yes, everything combines into something quite memorable and unique. Something worth the physical copy, for sure.

Bacamarte gives me hope for Brazilian music, and I hope it does to you as well.
