4 stars Very good and original brazillian prog-band!!! Their first and unique album is from 1976, but recorded in 1998. I found this piece in Florianópolis/Brazil (where I live) in an old book and CD store by 4 reais (a little more than 1 dollar)!!! What a luck!!! The first song is an instrumental beautiful work. It begins with Benchimol's flute, strong sounds and wonderful harmony. "Insanidade" (insanity) is sung by Márcia, talking about dream/reality human reflexions. "Ninfa Azul" (Blue Nymph) evidently refers to old myth with Benchimol's voice. More than 11 minutes of rock, blues, space rock. in a word: a real progressive rock! One more female vocal: "Novas Forças" (New forces), and the final one: "Mundo Guerreiro" (Warrior world): female and male vocals, debating in a background flute, saxophone and mellotron. Very recommended to symphonic prog-rocks fans! I'm waiting for a second album. Four stars. Five goes only to classics like Genesis, Yes and Elp. By the way, Benchimol has a solo career. If you have interest, there are three songs to free download on Enjoy!!!
