5 stars Its my first review of Marco Antonio Araujo and its actually quite strange begin with this album, since my favorite is "Influencias". I guess that begning with the end still has some magic.

MAA is the kind of musician still pretty much unknown in Brazil, he died when he was getting some attention, and did not have a great following post-mortem. The reason for the 5 stars to this album is the progression: you have exactly what made the first album a good debut, and you also have the maturity of the artist. "Lembranças" is an epic with beauty and energy combined. "Caipira" is the acknowledge of Brazilian folk roots, "Lucas" is a delicated music from father to son (although I think that the mix should privilege MAA guitar, and not the keyboard) and "Para (for) Jimmy Page" is a tribute song much like "Floydiana" was in the second album.

The album resembles some of the melodies present from his debut as he was predicting that this was a important work (or even his last).

Once, Chris Welch said that music must "touch the heart". I do believe that "Lucas" is a good reminder of this.

GKR | 5/5 |
