3 stars A very good effort of musicians clearly influenced by early seventies symphonic prog and Rock Progressivo Italiano. The album is well balanced between instrumental passages and parts sung by female voice which is competent, but is very far away from being brilliant. We have also very good moments coming from keybords and flute; it means the band leader did not set the spot light to shine only on him; and this is very good to notice.

UFO opens the album, with a smooth acoustic guitar, and slowly the band goes appearing and giving life to the song. If there is a song to illustrate the album, this would be the one. The second number has a flute played in a Tull´s inspired voice, and now a electric guitar appears. Although played vary fast and with competence, I my say I appreciate more the softness of track 1 softness. About the other songs, there can be noticed the good guitar playing in Mirage, but the acoustic piece Pássaro de Luz sets clear to me my preference for guitarist´s acoustic playing rather than his electric passages.

In the end, the album still has good things to present in songs like Ultimo Entardecer ver close to be as good as UFO. I will give it three and a half stars; and it would be easily four with a better vocalist and more acoustic guitar passages.
