4 stars The second Mutantes' album keeps (or even exceeds) the excellence of the first. Arrangements made by maestro Rogério Duprat are astonishing. Duprat was really a very creative orchestrator and producer.

All songs are worthy but '2001 (Dois mil e um)' is tremendous: the combination of Brazilian moda de viola* with rockabilly is unique and works perfectly together with a spoon of space rock and psychedelism. A 4' masterpiece not needing more than it...

'Fuga no. 2' is beautifully bucolic, 'Caminhante noturno' is grandiose and 'Rita Lee' pleasantly humourous.

I'll give it 4 stars very appropriately for being a real landmark in the Brazilian prog-scene!

*Moda de viola: Brazilian country rhythm where the 10-string guitar (viola) with its exquisite tune is the centerpiece. Normally these modas are only instrumental being seldom sung.

Atkingani | 4/5 |
