5 stars Besides starting as a melodic Emerson Lake & Palmer, and then pretty late turning into a heavy rock-pop oriented band (even with a album of cover songs of Raul Seixas), there were in the middle ground, "Criaturas da Noite".

If the YES influences can be seen (as in almost all scene of brazilian progressive music), we also have here plenty of ELP and even such bands as Deep Purple - as pretty much obviously in the first track. The second track, on the other hand is a lovely Crosby Stills & Nash song, soon to another heavy riff track come along, with strong vocals. The great epic (of the few brazilian ventures in more than 10min songs) have a orchestra conducted by ROgério Duprat, important figure of the Tropicália - the result is one of the best songs of the album and a sum-up of the whole band and their career so far.

O TERÇO is one of the few Brazilian bands that can walk between the progressive scene and the classic rock scene: brazilians fans of Made in Brazil, Casa das Máquinas and Raul Seixas also find in O TERÇO the best of brazilian rock.

And they are, actually. And this album is probably the best example of it.

GKR | 5/5 |
