3 stars 3.5 really

Blue Mammoth is a young band from Brazil with one album released so far selftitled. I like what I've hered on this debute is , they melt very well the symphonic prog passages with more rockier sections, the resoult even is not spectacular or original is very enjoyble in the end. I like the voice of Andre Micheli he doesn't have that accet of forign language speakers, he has a very good voice for this kind of music and fits perfectly here, aswell he is responsable for the keyboards arrangements who are very good here. The album is balanced overall, going from slow and mellow parts to more up tempo with plenty of memorable passages, complex ones like on Metamorphosis, Growin or on the opening track. Pleasent from start to finish this guys knew to make a fairly pleasent album, maybe the brazilian prog scene is not so in front now , but from time to time there are bands that needs attention, even as I said before this is not a spectacular album, is decent with good pieces. The symphonic prog parts are present here on almost every piece, giving a more symphonic prog oriantation to their songs even are melted with more hrder edge and some neo passages in places. So, good, the cover art is ok, the rest of the booklet aswell, the music too, so 3 stars rounded to 3.5.
