5 stars Bacamarte are Brazilian legends that released this album in the beginning of the eighties. The music is symphonic prog with South-American flair and it is centred on the magnificent guitar of Mario Neto. He is truly fantastic in this album and has an original style. The guitar is beautifully accompanied with the flute of Marcus Moura. The album is mostly instrumental but it has female vocals in about half of the tracks. Despite the fact that this was released in the eighties there is no need to worry because all pop influences are completely missing. Overall, you are treated with great musicianship and wonderful passages throughout.

The album starts with "UFO", a very strong track. Then the 2nd track "Smog Alado", enter Jane Duboc. What a voice and suits perfectly to this group! The rest is great songs after another. My favourite: ULTIMO ENTARDECER! This song has it all that makes this album special. The album closes with "Mirante das Estrelas" which has perhaps the most mind-blowing guitar this album has to offer. Fantastic!

Depois do Fim smokes from beginning to end! It has always been one of my favourites from South-America. Don't miss this gem.

Conclusion: Masterpiece!
