1 stars I'm almost totally convinced that this work won't find admirers among most of the genres of progressive rock. His works aren't shared not even between the brazilian prog listeners that I know. Maybe some fans of progressive electronic may enjoy this work, but it would be very surprising for me.

Quality sound of the CD is poor, the compositions are very repetitive and monotonous. Drum programming is present on the majority of the tracks, but it's so simple that very soon becomes irritating and stressful. The few moments that he assumes the drums, the lack of mastery is predominant. He is self-named multi-instrumentist (I don't know if he plays the bass, which seems to be present on this recording), and has knowledge for recording, mixing and producing. Nice features to make an album, but to make a good or an excellent prog work, just gotta have much more than that. This album is a proof that a musician can have many abbilities, as he does, but if he doesn't have domain on composing, on execution and/or mixing/producing, and/or if his resources are too limited, the results are disposable.

1,3 stars on a five-star scale.
