4 stars Now we are talking about prog!!! I reffer to my previous review on Angra's debut album "Angel's Cry" which I considered it more a piece of power metal than prog metal. The presence of other instruments than guitars, bass and drums gave a new atmosphere to the album which becomes coloured by brazilian regional rhythms. There's a lot more keyboard work (sorry, I can't distinghish a piano of an organ or a mellotron) :D The sequence "Crossing-Nothing To Say" is my favourite. I kinda worship "Carolina IV" for being such a creative piece: brazilian traditional music transmuted in metal... and the cute part "I've been such a fool..." :D "Z.I.T.O." is in "Angel's Cry" style and still is better than any song of that album in my opinion. "Deep Blue" has a hipnotizing organ and "Lullaby for Lucifer" is at least touching...
