4 stars This CD was released in 2008 by the label Do tempo do vinil in Portugal and a friend (Nuno) sent me as a gift from there. This edition brings photos, lyrics and an interview with the members of Quarteto 1111. The subject of Onde, Quando, Como, Porquê, Cantamos Pessoas Vivas (Where, When, How, Why, We Sing Living People) is the end of the dictatorship and the beginning of democracy in Portugal. Cantamos Pessoas Vivas is inspired in a poem by José Jorge Letria. According to Cid in his interview, this poem is dedicated to people that came to light and resuscitated in that beginning of democracy. This album is dedicated to mellotron lovers, like me, but it has also many acoustic passages. Cid thinks this album is more original than 10.000 anos entre Venus e Marte, that is, as he says, in the "trail" of English symphonic. In fact, I think the subject of this album more interesting than 10.000 anos..., but I still prefer the instrumental of that Cid album. Anyway, if you love symphonic prog with melloton and intelligent lyrics, you need get this one. It's the best album of Quarteto 1111 with José Cid.
