5 stars I'm just going to focus my review to the lyrics, since i couln't add anything new to these other reviews, it's a great album, the best in Portugal, along with 10.000 anos by José Cid, and Mistérios e Maravilhas and Humanoid by Tantra, although these two last are not at the same level.

While 10.000 anos is space themed, the end of manking as we know it, etc, etc, this piece is about the happiness and hope after the 1974 Revolution, it talks about the bright future of Portugal, with the arrival of freedom. All the slow and and gentle parts are filled with beautiful poetry about our people, but above that, about Humanity. The violent parts are a demand for liberty, for freedom for all the peoples. The lyrics on this song are about real people and real feelings, it's a mirror of the general feeling in Portugal after 1974.

This album has just been re-released in vinyl, by a spanish label. As soon as my copy arrives i'll be posting the lyrics, both in portuguese and english, maybe that way it'll become clear what this masterpiece is all about and why it is an outstanding work, both intrumental and lyrics.

5 stars.
