Prog Reviewer
2 stars A Brazilian psyche band from the eighties playing some songs from the sixties! Did you say original?

Some of these songs being genuine psyche or space rock anthems, I don't think it was really necessary to release an album around these songs. But since "Violeta?" did it, let's review this work.

IMHHO the most interesting track is the re-sculpture of the "Gong "song. A phenomenal beat throughout "Blues For Findlay". It kicks all the way through and is by far the best that one can get here.

Not that the other covers are weak, but an attempt on "Interstellar Overdrive" or the wonderful "Echoes" is quite daring. In this respect, the song from the Beatles or the Stones is more sustained and successful. The short part dedicated to "No Quarter" is a total disaster in terms of vocals. I really don't get the point of this kaleidoscope. A medley between "Echoes" and "No Quarter"! They must have paid quite a bunch of royalties to release such an album!

Depending on your knowledge of the original songs and your attitude towards a reshape of these; I guess that you could rate this work between one and four stars. I just remain critical and I rate this album with two stars.
