5 stars Angra (for those of you who dont know) are a Power/Prog band from Brazil (and by far one of the best in their genre) this album 'Rebirth' being their forth album and first with the then new singer Eduardo Falaschi.

Now Angra posess a talent that not many power metal bands of their standards can (only a few Helloween, Edguy, Hammerfall and Gamma Ray being a few examples) and that is not only to have fantastic musicmanship but write songs that just sing themselves, each chorus in this album is very catchy and very well crafted and all round the album is full of excellent guitar riffs and awsome solos taking you in to more of the neo-classical type guitar playing of Yngwie Malmsteen or even Michael Romeo of Symphony X even the intro to the song NOVA ERA is quite Symphony X, although i was quite supprised to hear a slight bot of World or even Aferican style music in the 8 minute epic UNHOLY WARS and even the majesty of HEROS OF SAND is enough to bring tears to a grown man, anyway to the scores;

In Excelsis - Intro Nova Era - 9/10 Millennium Sun 8/10 Acid Rain 8/10 Heroes of Sand 10/10 Unholy Wars 10/10 Rebirth 9/10 Judgement Day 8/10 Running Alone 9/10 Visions Prelude 9/10

Conclusion? Angra are a fantastic metal band weather you call them prog, power metal, neo classical power metal..whatever, this is still a very worthy album to have and a grand piece to any collection
