3 stars Listening "O Som Nosso de Cada Dia" (something like "Our Everyday Music") you will find Space Rock, Folk Progressive and Symphonic Progressive. All songs are sung in portuguese, except the instrumental "O Guarani". Sorry guys, I didn't like it too much. Other people can enjoy, but I don't. However, synthesizer, saxophone, vocals are great and accompany this album all the time. I give it three stars because the great "O Guarani", from Carlos Gomes's Opera. This song rescues this album! You have to listen that one.

4 stars This is one of my favorite brazilian prog album. The music presented here is actually a kind of mixture of Italian symphonic prog and (south)-american jazz with some influences by English space rock. Very original in fact and it's almost impossible to give a direct reference. Manito's keyboard play is quite reminiscent of Keith Emerson, especially on "Massavilha" which is a real highlight of the album. But overall their music does not sound like ELP with portuguese vocals at all. A song like "Direccion de Aquarius" could be found as well on an album of any italian prog band. "A outra face" starts with a bit more heavy and aggressive sound with great organ play and drums then becoming bluesy, jazzy in the middle part, the type of vocals remind me a bit to early CHICAGO in fact. It finishes in a very jazzy vein with great sax playing. The CD bonus track is not really essential I've to say.It's starting in a very spacey vein reminding a bit of early HAWKWIND or some KRAUTROCK, but then changing to a quite ordinary keyboard playing like in a dancehall with some Kongas in between, there are even bits of Rock'n'Roll. Rather strange mixed medley this track. As a summary "Snegs" is an excellent recommendation for any prog collection. Just forget about the bonus track. Absolutely worth 4 stars!

4 stars Nice, but could have been much, MUCH better if the vocals were better

Here we have yet another gem of the brazilian progressive rock back from the 70's. This album is lucky to have so good dongs, because it suffer from a number of problems, being the two biggest problems the singer and the technology used when they where recording the album. I'll start talking about its problem and then later i'll talk about its good points.

Well, the vocalist of Som Nosso de Cada Dia, though being one of the main composers of the band, is a very bad vocalist. I mean, his voice is OK, but when he does the damn vibrato he screws up BIG time. The other problem, still in the vocal category, is that the backing vocals sometimes just can't get in tune with the main vocals and that cause a major discomfort, at least for me.

The other problem is one that they just could not deal with. There are technological limitations in the record. The drums are not as bright as they should be just like the rest of the instruments in general lack brightness.

Now lets talk about the many good points of the album! The songs, overall, are very, very good: they are very balanced and very well worked by both the composer and the musicians. The highlights go to Sinal da Paranˇia, O Som Nosso de cada Dia, Massavilha (awesome solo by Manito) and A Autra Face, but the album deserve to be listened as a whole because it is very good.

Although there were technological limitations with the recording, mixing and mastering, the instrumental work is amazing, specially the drum and the organ / synthesizer / piano work. The bass mostly support the band and, though being nicely played, do not do anything exceptional. The acoustic guitars also do its job very well, like the flutes and the sax, but the main characters of this album are the organ / synthesizer / piano.

Grade and Final Thoughts

Snegs is a very important progressive rock release from the 70's and it is a very good album overall and although it has some problems, the qualities surpass the problems by far. The thing is that this album could have a better without those problems, but it is still a very good album. 4 stars then.

4 stars One of the most important albums to appear in Brazil at the early 70┬┤s, O Som Nosso De Cada Dia ("Our Everyday Music") was one of the first symphonic prog bands to actually have a record out by a major label. It was very well received by critics and the prog fans at the time, even if the production was quite disappointing. Fortunatly for today┬┤s audience, the remastering done by Progressive Rock Worldwide records solved much of the problem, and also includes a new track, recorded around 1993, when the original trio reunited for this occasion.

Their sound is hard to define, since they drawn their influences from several different sources, like symphonic rock, jazz-rock/fusion, brazilian and latin folk, psychedelic/space rock, RPI and even blues and hard rock. The resulting songs were quite stunning for the time, with a mature, varied and original songwriting throughout. The celebrated (and recently deceased) multi instrumentist Manito (from 60┬┤s legendary beat band Os Incr├şveis) is the main figure here, playing not heavily Keith Emerson influenced keyboards, but also a few violin and sax parts (traces of early King Crimson can be detected). Bass and drums are quite good and versatile. Vocals, as usual with so many 70┬┤s bands, are only average at best. All tracks are sung in portuguese, except Direccion de Aquarius, sung partly in spanich, partly in english.

I had the original LP and I can assure that the CD has a much, much brighter and balanced sound than the vinyl counterpart (the bass for instance was almost inaudible, but now can be heard quite clearly). And I was glad to see how good their debut was and how their music stood well the test of time, even if some timbres and lyrics are quite dated. It is only a shame they could not deliver a follow up as powerful and strong as Snegs. However, this CD is one of the few recorded proofs and a very good exemple that Brazil had its strong own prog scene in the early 70┬┤s. Sinal Da paranoia became a kind of underground classic and Massavilha with its terrific instrumental parts is probably one of the highlights, but in general all the songs are very good.

The bonus track is a version of a very well known theme from Brazil┬┤s most famous classical composer Carlos Gomes, O Guarani. It shows they had lost none of their musical prowness after all those years and it┬┤s a pity they did not ended up releasing a new CD of original material then.

Conclusion: with all the aforementioned faults, this is one of the first and best prog CDs released in Brazil in that decade. At the time it was really hard to record such new and complex music and most groups disbanded after made their names on live shows only. For us, some were lucky enough to leave their mark despite all the technological and financial difficulties. Snegs is surely one of them. A real gem for any symphonic prog lover. Kudos to PRW records for improving the original LP sound so much without losing any of the group┬┤s energy and essence. 4 strong stars.

5 stars This is an essential record if you're a true progressive rock fan. This is a very underrated trio in which the drummer and bassist share the vocals and the third guy, a multi-instrumentalist flies high improvising on many different instruments but specially keyboards and saxophone. Unfortunately ... (read more)
