4 stars This is probaly the Mutante's most underrated album. After Rita Lee left the band, Arnaldo and Sergio Dias were a little lost. Arnaldo's evergrowing genius position the band entirely within the progressive rock genre with "O A e o Z", that was already pointed at with "Mutante e Seus Cometas no País do Bauretz". Arnaldo's giant ego and the unsuccess with marketing as the band had lost the popular appeal of Rita soon led the band into dark times, and Arnaldo left leaving Sergio alone.

And Sergio felt progressive rock was his thing, and did not let things pass by, he picked great musicians and, with almost nothing, recorded an almost-flawless record. He wrote songs as complex and intricated as YES's, with more popular structures, borrowing rock and roll, jazz, and pop styles. This, however, did not made the record banal or too easy to listen, it is filled with amazing musicianship, played with love, with lots of details and textures - great rock and roll all over the place.

It is hard to believe that this record was recorded live, and that all of the band was high on LSD (except for Tulio the keyboardist).
