4 stars Possibly one of most popular South American prog album. And possibly one of their best one.

Just three long compositions filled with strings-arranged symphonic rock. Plenty guitar sounds and other rock attributes are melted with quite symphonic sound of strings instruments. Sound density is high, you will hardly find airy moments on this records.

Many jazz-rock elements (a-la RTF) are presented as well. Melodies are not of the first importance, so compositions aren't cheese or too sweet at all. Some choral singing is added as well.

There are some quite attractive pieces, as violin and flute interplays, etc. Vocal is classic-like, and in fact all sound is something in between of rock-opera and symphonic fusion. Not such sweet or melodic as many RPI works, but obviously has characteristic Latin sound - warm, soft, melodic, classically arranged, with roots in symphonic music.

I believe this album should be very attractive for symphonic prog lovers, as well as for heavily orchestrated instrumental music fans. Strong work from late 70-s.
