4 stars 01. Dança Com Devas The flute of the beginning near the mandolin and everything more warns knell that begins. The vocal ones of Reborn one are very good and the best of everything . in Portuguese. The refrain is captivating and quite 'obscure', it gets a beating thinking who is Have to . After a more calm part the letter contudente does effect again on the minds, the instrumental thing is completed. Distinction for the beautiful ground of guitar of Sânzio, and the beautiful parts intrumentais of the band, principally flutes. The cither in the end is completed to the tone of the song.

02. Além Do Vento The beginning is already promising with the band doing conventions and with Marcelo's bass when one of Geddy Lee is giving (laughters), the vocal melody of the verses is sensational, the vocalizations, the letter. What a good music! The 'straight' part of the verse contrasts perfectly with the conventions principally of flute, Rufino's keyboards, bass and André's battery. It trims with one undoubtedly with international easy transport, much better than great band of the 70 years cultuada.

03. No More Whispers The riff is well a Rock and roll (the guitar in this track is), the vocal in English, by the way the only ones of the disc, are not bad, far from that, the charm is just they they sing in Portuguese. Of the way for front they surprise us with a reggae with flute and completely (laughters)

04. Kian Quite serious noisy, low guitar, the flutes in an incessant one to sing. This song has a strange letter (I do not know well which the language) written by the Marcus Vianna (the own thing), this track has a sonority 80's, nothing that discredits the final product.

05. Canções De Beurin An instrumental acoustic perfect section, the climate is completed, the letter is marvellous. Section of pianos also completed. Summarizing to the best of the disc and to miss out the best music already written this way, without exaggerations.

06. O Sonho After a furious introduction of completely broken piano, a guitarrinha goes flat without stopping, and the base completely pop (in the good sense of the thing) is very good. One almost ground of bass well soul takes the band to ground of guitar, which to vary is very quite tipsy.

07. Novidades Piano and flute give the base for a well withdrawn bass, a percussion of light one and the duplicated vocal ones. Sensational letter, pianos more still. And captivating and clever refrain in his words. The band in general writes very well (I am not sure of the one who is the composer himself of the letters, but the credits are in the txt of the letters near the archive).

08. Pra Hoje Um Sol The percussion is an oriental influence certainly, I think what Moroccan. Meanwhile the flutes and pianos do a melodious bed for the vocal thing. In the general one a simple song.

09. Águas Man! This piano is sensational, soon a sound of waters running, and the guitar repeating the piano. When the vocal thing enters it gives me the impression of which he is aso feet of a river singing for the nature. The bass is sensational in the second part, next to those guitars typical 'Echoes' of David Gilmour. The second part is a total Wine glass! It is the sound itself of the band (that is difficult a band to get right away), a mixture of Jethro Tull with a very little of Genesis and Camel, but with guitars more rock, heavier. The letters are all sensationally very well writings and the very quite sung melodies. The band has that progressive sound that I adore what is that part of the music where all the instruments touch the same thing in unison. Very good!

10. Não Se Lembram Do Que São The guitar totally Rock and the flutes give a giant contrast, still more when the two make everything joined. Again the vocal melody perfectly well fitted in the melody of the music and with the chosen words. Another distinction of the band there are the vocal ones duplicated now by the singer himself Renato, it prays for his two 'bit players' of voice Marcelo and Rufino.

11. Lanças You launch, it has a keyboard that remembers Floyd in the tin, but in pursuances a few sounds of cither enter and we think that it the question is other one with oriental influence. That it swims! Joyful mistake. It is prog/Rock instrumental of the good ones, with the band entering with great easiness for many changes of time and without losing one's momentum.

12. O Fortuna (Carmina Burana) A Sensational and surprising version of one of the acts of the opera Carmin Burana (of Carl Orff). You certainly know this act, but certainly if surpreenserão with the musicality of the group.
