3 stars This is a Brasilian six piece band with guest musicians. I'm pleased with the very alternating sound and wide range of instruments: a fluent rhythm with fiery electric guitar, violin and soaring keyboards in "Copla", twanging acoustic guitar, flute and a break with great interplay between keyboards, flute and electric guitar and in the final part slow synthesizer solo in "Víndima e Ventania", lots of breaks, shifting moods and splendid soli on guitar and keyboards in "Vega", a wonderful intro with twanging guitar, followed by a romantic climate and howling electric guitar in "Canção" and metal guitar and bombastic keyboards, many changing climates with splendid work on flute and violin in "Poços e Nuvens". The best composition is the very alternating and exciting "Incenso e chuva" featuring an intro with tablas and Fripperian guitar ("Discipline"-era), followed by a psychedelic atmosphere and lots of good musical ideas, very dynamic and captivating!
