Review by Tarcisio Moura
2 stars Oh, my god... when everybody was expecting a return to roots after the rather lackluster Além Paraíso, they release this dud! I still remember how disappointd I was when I bought this record. The cover was beautiful and the band had done at least very good LPs until then. that´s why I bought it without hearing it beforehand. And all I have to tell is that I sold it as soon as I found anyone who was willing to have it.

Not that A Idade Da Luz was a total crap. In fact it did contain the group´s last big hit (the beautiful ballad Todo Azul Do mar) and I liked very much Nave De Prata, which reminds me of the ´good old days´. Unfortunalty those were the only memorable moments in the whole record. Some tunes like Ilha do Mel and Adoráveis Criaturas even pedal on the old mold of 14 Bis, but were clearly uninspired and lacking any passion. But most tracks are just in new wave pop style of bands like The Police and Duran Duran, totally unsuited for the kind of music they created, and were loved for.

I don´t have much more to say. A Idade Da Luz was a mistake, nothing more than that. A (failed) attempt to cash in the new wave pop of the moment. Two good songs and that´s all.

Final rating: Two stars, and just barely.
