4 stars Nice, but could have been much, MUCH better if the vocals were better

Here we have yet another gem of the brazilian progressive rock back from the 70's. This album is lucky to have so good dongs, because it suffer from a number of problems, being the two biggest problems the singer and the technology used when they where recording the album. I'll start talking about its problem and then later i'll talk about its good points.

Well, the vocalist of Som Nosso de Cada Dia, though being one of the main composers of the band, is a very bad vocalist. I mean, his voice is OK, but when he does the damn vibrato he screws up BIG time. The other problem, still in the vocal category, is that the backing vocals sometimes just can't get in tune with the main vocals and that cause a major discomfort, at least for me.

The other problem is one that they just could not deal with. There are technological limitations in the record. The drums are not as bright as they should be just like the rest of the instruments in general lack brightness.

Now lets talk about the many good points of the album! The songs, overall, are very, very good: they are very balanced and very well worked by both the composer and the musicians. The highlights go to Sinal da Paranóia, O Som Nosso de cada Dia, Massavilha (awesome solo by Manito) and A Autra Face, but the album deserve to be listened as a whole because it is very good.

Although there were technological limitations with the recording, mixing and mastering, the instrumental work is amazing, specially the drum and the organ / synthesizer / piano work. The bass mostly support the band and, though being nicely played, do not do anything exceptional. The acoustic guitars also do its job very well, like the flutes and the sax, but the main characters of this album are the organ / synthesizer / piano.

Grade and Final Thoughts

Snegs is a very important progressive rock release from the 70's and it is a very good album overall and although it has some problems, the qualities surpass the problems by far. The thing is that this album could have a better without those problems, but it is still a very good album. 4 stars then.
