Review by Proghead
4 stars When José CID's band QUARTETO 1111 broke up in the mid 1970s, he embarked on his solo career. At this point he wasn't the Portuguese pop icon he would later become, as he was still exploring prog rock, as demonstrated on QUARTETO 1111's final album, "Cantamos Pessoas Vivas", and this one, "Vida (Sons do Quotidiano)", CID's first solo release, which was simply an EP. To me, I don't think it's quite as good as his following release, "10.000 Anos Depois Entre Vénus e Marte" (his first full length solo effort), as the mood of this album seems a bit more somber, and the theme is one birth, life, and death, rather than the sci-fi theme of "10.000 Anos...".

On this EP, CID handles piano, string synths, Mellotron, and Mini Moog, with a band backing him on guitar, bass, and drums. There are a couple sections that remind me a bit of Jean Michel JARRE's "Oxygene" (especially the string synths), but overall, the music is late '70s synth driven prog rock. "Vida..." was already included as a bonus cut on the Art Sublime CD reissue of "10.000 Anos...", which is a smart move on Art Sublime's move. It's too bad that CID would venture in to prog one more time, that was "10.000 Anos...", after that, he turned to pop, of the time that got him entered in to the Eurovision Song Contest. Regardless, I still think "10.000 Anos..." is better, but of course, this EP is still excellent.

5 stars A year before the release of the astonishing "10000 Anos Depois Entre Vénus E Marte", José Cid released an EP that would be the first of his two solo Progressive Rock works. Although, "Vida (Sons do Quotidiano)" was not his first travel in progressive music. Back in 1974, Quarteto 1111 (his former g ... (read more)

4 stars Quarteto 1111 is the name of José Cid's early band. 10. 000 anos entre Vénus e Marte is a solo album. 1111 was a victim of the political censure of that time, being forbidden. Sons do quotidiano is in the same line of his solo album. We've got atmospheric lines in that 70's prog style. As ... (read more)

4 stars A good effort coming from one of the top portuguese musicians, at least coming from the seventies. Personally, I find this EP much closer to his solo work "10 000 anos...", in the same vein, and with almost the same musicians. This EP was released when Cid was still heading the Quarteto 1111, ...
