4 stars This is one of my favorite brazilian prog album. The music presented here is actually a kind of mixture of Italian symphonic prog and (south)-american jazz with some influences by English space rock. Very original in fact and it's almost impossible to give a direct reference. Manito's keyboard play is quite reminiscent of Keith Emerson, especially on "Massavilha" which is a real highlight of the album. But overall their music does not sound like ELP with portuguese vocals at all. A song like "Direccion de Aquarius" could be found as well on an album of any italian prog band. "A outra face" starts with a bit more heavy and aggressive sound with great organ play and drums then becoming bluesy, jazzy in the middle part, the type of vocals remind me a bit to early CHICAGO in fact. It finishes in a very jazzy vein with great sax playing. The CD bonus track is not really essential I've to say.It's starting in a very spacey vein reminding a bit of early HAWKWIND or some KRAUTROCK, but then changing to a quite ordinary keyboard playing like in a dancehall with some Kongas in between, there are even bits of Rock'n'Roll. Rather strange mixed medley this track. As a summary "Snegs" is an excellent recommendation for any prog collection. Just forget about the bonus track. Absolutely worth 4 stars!
