5 stars 7 reviews so far, 3 of them awarding 5 stars, but I'll be the first one to give 5-star rating - outside of Brazil area. So why would I want to do that ? Well, because O.T. deserves it, for creating this masterpiece. Not wholesome Prog (it's rather 2/3 [yeah, I think that you can count Jogo Das Pedras, the rest would be Ponto Final, title track and that ending epic 1974] pure latino symphonic prog and the rest are good Rock songs).

This title track is what I call main attraction. Because we Prog lovers are also human beings, we can enjoy various kinds of music, different genres. But while I enjoy Rock, Pop or Soundtrack music, I come here to ProgArchives to enjoy Prog, we talk mostly about Prog (and relation of album's music to Prog), praising, arguing about and generally talking about this umbrella term we love so much. Well, so the title track, comprising of about 1/3 of the album, this is the reason why Prog lovers should get this album - oh, what a good year it was ... OK, I didn't get to be alive for more than 14 years, but still, I am sure it was a great year. Must have been, else such wonderful song wouldn't be created. I am not Braz(s)il expert, but from a quick look at history section from wikipedia, I don't see anything special there. Maybe it's something personal for band member's, or perhaps this album itself was created in '74, being released following year. Wonderful, magical, consistent in general and slowly graduating into big finale (not as big as Dream Theater's Six Degrees CD2 finale, but still it is big).

Nevertheless, it's been a week since I've found this album, dozen or so plays and I feel like I cannot hold all these thoughts back any longer. Nothing weird here, it's a common reason why people are writing reviews.
