5 stars This is a Brazilian that made two albums entitled "Depois Do Fim" ('83) and "As Sete Cidades" (1999). In '95 Rarity Records released their first LP on CD with the addition of the bonus track "Mirante Das Estrellas" from their second LP. The album "Depois Do Fim" is one of the highlights of the South-American prog rock: a compelling blend of varied keyboards (vintage synthesizers, strings, piano, organ), skilful acoustic - and electric guitar and strong female Portuguese vocals. The nine compositions (four instrumental) sound warm and elaborate with many changing atmospheres. I'm mostly impressed by Mario Neto's alternating guita rplay: from powerful and howling electric guitar (with echoes from Neil Young to Steve Howe) to a slight Andalusian touch and classical like John Williams (SKY- era) or using the tremolo-technique on the Spanish guitar (like "Recuerdos de la Alhambra" from TARREGA). An unique, very varied prog rock CD, not to be missed by any serious prog rock aficionado!
