5 stars I just can't believe how good this album is. What makes it even more amazing is that at the time of making this record, the members of Bacamarte were in their late teens, and that this is their only album from that time, published five years after its making. What a grand pity it was, that Depois do fim was published at the time when there wasn't demand on good pop music.

On the other hand, Depois do fim isn't typical pop music either. There are plenty of influences which range from Ennio Morrecone soundalike opener UFO to rock progressivo Italiano type tracks, and up to the airy, a bit hippy chanson-like Pássaro de luz, where Jane Duboc's clear and yet soft voice is at its best . The most amazing tracks to me are the aforementioned opener, and the longer and proggier compositions like Último Entardecer, Mirante das estrelas and the title track - but believe me, there are no weak moments on this album.

Apart from great compositions - mostly by the then 18 year old guitarist Mário Neto - the musicianship of the band is marvelous. This is a masterful album that I recommend to anybody who appreciate the good old symphonic prog of the 70's!
