3 stars A Banda Do Sol is a Brazilian band that was actually born in late 70's and released an album in the early 80's (a rare pice nowadays). But it was only around 2006 that the band get together again to work on the album Tempo (2010). This album was mixed by Billy Sherwood (Yes, Circa, Yoso, etc).

In O Tempo (2010) we have a band that plays by the rules, pretty melodies, nice tunes, a nice voice and all. But the album suffers a bit with the... mixing. Billy Sheerwood has always been a 'compressor' guy and pretty much that he touches as a producer or mixer turns out to have the exactly same sound. A souless sound. Which to Banda Do Sol was a bit of a killer.

Despite this, tracks like 'Voar', 'Tempo' e 'Janavatar' are good tracks.

In general a solid album, but not a breakthrough tough.

3.5 stars
