Despite releasing a sophomore album nearly sixteen years later, its lack of original members left Sete Cidades generelly regarded as a Mario Neto solo work. As such, Depois do Fim puts Bacamarte firmly into the category of legendary prog bands that popped up for one album, and were (almost) never heard from again.

The Good: Fantastic muscianship and strong compositions throughout, so much so that the vocals are rendered slightly unneccessary, but they still remain a pleasant addition. It would be hard to single out praise for guitar, keys or drumming as all are exceptional. One thing that does puzzle me though is the exclusion of the frenetic finale Mirante Das Estrelas from the original release as for me, it is the best of an excellent bunch. The overall sound is heavily symphonic with some ecletic elements and reminds me of a hyperactive Haronium at times.

The Bad: Nothing of any significance.

The Verdict: Highly reccomended South American gem.
