5 stars BACAMARTE made what no one has made in Brazil... and I am not talking about music.

One of the most peculiar characteristics of brazilian rock music (every genre), is the difficulties of create and sustain a band. Days ago I tried to catalog some bands from 1969 to 1973 and I give up with 15 names excluding some already well-known and even added to progarchives.

Not always their sound is of a high quality standart, but back then the performers were not professional musicians, many tried to balance their jobs (engineers, architects, students, etc.) with their passion for music. The result: thousands of bands with one, two albums at most.

BACAMARTE is not just one of those bands: encapsulates everything from the archetype to the actually quality of the music. For me, the only other exponent of Brazilian rock music (in the national sense, all forms) is SECOS & MOLHADOS.

As for music, BACAMARTE did the best they can within the possibilities of the time. The sound mixed with the electric, the female voice with the speed of the flute. Everything is in place.

A great album, which to me is not just a great album closed in itself, is an album that represents all those who might have been able to work wonders if the situation were minimally more in their favor.

Five stars to them and the ones that cannot.

GKR | 5/5 |
