3 stars Great debut album from these symphonic progsters from Brazil.

When the album start like a tribute to Eloy........ you know you are in for a ride. In particular when the band is named after a Yes song. And just let me sort this out once and for all. This album is by no means a Yes tribute album. Their DNA profile can be found here, yes. But this album also have a lot of other DNA profiles. Where do I start and where do I stop ? There is no point. I would say some Krautrock and a lot of Symphonic Prog. Tales From a Forgotten World is a stew which should cater for most tastes.

......... Which may explain why it is a bit difficult to penetrate during the first listening sessions. It is both so arch-typical Symphonic Prog and so varied in it's form that it has problems making an impact. The lack of any real great melody lines also blights this album. Besides of that, this is a great melodic symphonic prog album.

The instruments used here is the standard setup. Synths and electric guitars does the many solos here. Bass and drums rumbles on in the background. The vocalist is fairly decent without really impressing. But he is OK for this type of music.

My main gripe is the lack of any real great tracks or even signature tracks here. That is why this is only a three stars album for me. But it will stay on my frequent play list and I may upgrade later on to four stars. But after ten listening sessions, three stars would have to do. But being a debut album, this is a very good effort. I have their Chessboard album too and I will also give that some thorough spins.

3.5 stars
