5 stars Well this one got a fare share of reviews and the rating is definitely acceptable. For the ones who are still not familiar with this, bacamarte are a Brazilian band who plays symphonic prog with an amazing guitar , beautiful melodies , top that with high writing skills and you got your self a winner. Although released in a peculiar year 1983 it has a definite 70's style and atmosphere , no 80's sound in sight. Music is very colorful and melodic using flutes, keyboards and that fiery guitar. Electric guitar is distorted but in a gentle way so the music is never heavy , and has a one of a kind sound. Jane duboc's vocals are purely angel like , simply beautiful , singing in portuguese which sound refreshing and are pleasant to my ears. The music is mainly fast and upbeat with great interplay between everyone , very intricate stuff , the songs ranges between 4 minutes long to the longest 9 minutes , the short songs are still progy with a lot going on thanks to the incredible guitar. Cd version contain an extra track taken from their second album , although is quite good , contain a programed drum machine sound which definitely ruins the sound after the previous tracks.

This is one of the most lovable symphonic albums ever and with a good reason , so it's a must have for all you readers , I can not imagine anyone who wouldn't like it. I can't think of any highlights either , everything is equally beautiful. Perfect stunning release , it is an easy 5 stars.

Don't miss it!!
