Review by hdfisch
1 stars I was checking out this band (fortunately for free!) since usually one can find really good stuff from this country. But after listening to it I had to realize that their music is rather dominated by the NeoProg influence (at least in my ears). They're using instruments more typical for symphonic Prog like violin for example and some operatic vocals provided obviously by Megali Vieira Borges like in Track 2. But overall the compositions sound rather poor and "light-prog-ish" and range from nice, but not exciting songs fulfilling quite well usual NeoProg cliches to really awfully cheesy love ballads like Memories of a great love . Even if listed under NeoProg I could not rate it higher than 2 stars, because the overall quality is far below the best ones of this sub-genre although I've to admit that musicianship is rather good. But since it's supposed to be Symphonic Prog, I can't give it more than 1 star, sorry. I listened as well to their first album, which is even much worse than this one but I'll refuse to review that one as well.

Might be suitable only for fellows prefering very light and pop-ish stuff!
