Prog Reviewer
4 stars This very nice EP is actually the last record made by Os Mutantes in studio

First of all, i must say that i don't actually own the 7'' EP version, but actually the Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol re-release that contains this very good and rare EP made by Os Mutantes, but since their musical style here is very similar to their musical style in the album Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol, it actually makes sense putting them together in the re-release.

In the second place, all songs here are very nice. The album starts with the obviously Yes/Purple-influenced Cavaleiros Negros, that have a very good instrumental part (highlights to the great organ and synthetizer work), but a not so good vocal part by SÚrgio Dias. The next one is the straightforward rock and roll / hard rock song Tudo Bem. The last song is the very nice ballad called Balada do Amigo. The last song is a really good ballad with a really nice guitar and piano work, though halfway though it SÚrgio Dias screws up the vocals, singing considerably out of tune. Despite the vocal problem, Cavaleiros Negros is still the best song of the EP, being followed by the also very good (and also with some vocal problem) Balada do Amigo.

Grade and Final Thoughts

A very good EP by the legendary band Os Mutantes (or at least what was left of it), i think it deserves to be fairly rated, though having some problems (some cracks and background hiss). Because of it, 4 stars.

CCVP | 4/5 |
