From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Arguably one of the strongest progressive rock albums from South America. We can even say that it can beat most European progressive rock albums of the 80's. Two trademarks are original Portuguese female vocal and virtuoso guitar. However, also keyboard layers and folk influences underlined by flute, are hearable. Influences could be traced to Italian prog and Genesis/Camel/Yes."Smog alado" is a symphonic composition with solemn organ in the second part and great vocal. The first track is a pleasant instrumental piece."Miragem" features guitar with Brazilian folk motives; by now you must have noticed that the guitar has a slightly different recorded sound than usually. "Ultimo Entardecer" is the longest track and most varied track. Howe-like guitar runs, Wakeman's synths, acoustic section after symphonic one,...

"Controversia" is not a controversial instrumental workout in a typical Bacamarte manner. The title track has a very solemn synth start and returns down to earth with the female vocals.

The bonus track has synth drums and is not on par with the original tracks.
