3 stars Violeta de Outono is one of the rare Psychedelic rock band from the 80's inspired by bands such as Gong and Pink Floyd. I started listenning to them with the "Violeta de Outono" album release and I really liked it, they do sound like a Progressive "U2" at first hearing, it is in fact really more innovative and certainly one of the best bands in Brazil ! :)

This record is release of old material they used to record in studio, there is no original track in here, only covers of old classic bands such as Pink Floyd, Gong, Beatles, Rolling Stones etc.. While the covers sound really great there is no real innovation with the songs, they are covered without real changement or improvisation except for the Last song of the album, wich is the greatest: Echoes/No Quarter (Originally from Pink Floyd and Led Zepellin), This track is really Atmospheric they mix these two song starting with the first part of Echoes (The first "Pings" of the original Echoes are here replaced by the first keyboard note of No Quarter) and ending with the magnificent No Quarter...

This is violeta de Outono, one of the few great bands I wouldn't have discovered without progarchives! I'd rate this album "Very Good but non-essential" because this is just covers, but I really recommend the "Violeta De Outono" excellent album.
