3 stars Make a review about the only progrocker here in Portugal is a little bit strange... I remember ear it back in the early 80's in my father's stereo. Jose Cid is someone I recognise more from the dubious quality pop (here we call it "pimba" music), than from quality prog rock. The album is full of sounds from vintage keyboards, sometimes without logical connection (it seems that Cid's first concern was to show his skills and his collection of keyboards.). It is a conceptual album, well produced with some moments of good music. Out of time, this is a typical Portuguese effort: good packing with little substance. Although, his historical value is undeniable, here in a country where music is absolutely uninteresting (the kind of music Cid will later succumb), the album is overrated. To those who don't know Cid's later work, I give an example with an excerpt of a "pimba" lyric: "ike the monkey likes banana/I like you/I hide some beneath the bed/and I eat it/eat it" Is this the kind of "poetry" that Jose Cid makes these days.
