Prog Reviewer
3 stars Violeta De Outono is a Brazilian band who played vintage psyche rock in?the late eighties.

I have to say that the music featured is quite acceptable, well performed and quite upbeat like "Luz" which sounds a bit like COTAE (especially during the intro). But it was released some twenty years behind the mood. Still, as an old nostalgic of those days, I can cope very well with this album, but be warned: there is little originality to grab here.

This is also a very confidential band with extremely little exposure on PA (and probably even in Brazil). If ever you're looking for the sound of the late middle sixties (Floyd, Airplane), why don't you give a chance to these "Violeta"? You shouldn't be disappointed with the good guitar and strong rhythm of "Dia Eterno" which is my fave.

A fine ASOS feeling is felt during the longest track (even if it doesn't reach the seven minutes mark) of this offering: "Sombras Flutuantes" is another highlight. The album closes on a good cover of "Tomorrow Never Knows" from the Fab Four.

In all, this is quite a good album for old freaks. Three stars.
