5 stars Amazing stuff here! I'm Portuguese so obviously I know (although I try to avoid it at all costs) the kind of horrible and unispired pop music Mr. Cid has been doing for the last three decades. Therefore it's really surprising (in a very very positive way) to hear what he was doing before giving up and trying to earn some money the easy way!

This album is absolutely stunning. Excellent classic prog (despite being released a few years after the golden age of progressive music), not difficult to get into at all. It's mainly a symphonic album with some space rock (floydian space rock in fact). The concept is also very much in the style of space rock bands, describing a trip to the space to escape the end of the world. All songs are at least very good. The majority of them are symphonic prog (with a lot of mellotron), but there is also a straight rock one ("O Caos") or even Portugal's version of "The Great Gig In The Sky" ("Memos").

Definitely 5 stars. A masterpiece made in the middle of the desert that was Portugal at the time! The only complaint is the length (too short...) but that really isn't enough to stop this being an essential work.
