4 stars As I have said in the Biography of this band: "Some people prefer the first Som Imaginário phase, others the third album". I prefer this last Som Imaginário album. "A Matança do Porco" - The pig's butchery (11:07) is one of the best progressive album from Brazil. Leaded by keyboardist Wagner Tiso, Som Imaginário recorded a different kind of music here. Instead psychedelic, like their first records, this album is a kind of fusion, symphonic and classical music. "A Matança do Porco" is an all instrumental album (with voices but no lyrics). The first music, Armina (5:45), begins like classical music, but soon changes to rock and closes with classic piano again. Bolera (3:11), "Mar Azul" - Blue Sea (3:46) and A-3 (3:12) are rock united with jazz and bossa nova accompanied by Danilo Caymmi's flute. Armina 2 (6:37) and excerpt 2 (0:35) is very jazzistic, excerpts 1 (0:46) and 3 (0:45) are conduct by symphonic orchestra. Finally, the great "A Matança do Porco" with more than eleven minutes: a beautiful combination between fusion and symphonic rock. Soft piano and dark 12 strings guitar in the beggining (approximately three and half minutes), crazy fusion with strongs piano, drums and percussion by the jazzman Chico Batera (3:30 to 6:30), and completely symphonic with Gaya conducting Odeon Orchestra, with vocals by Golden Boys and Milton Nascimento: aaaaAAAAAAaaaaAAAAA... Ten minutes, and the suite closes with organ and a sad (maybe dying) pig crying: gniifff, gniffff... I'm very shure this is one of the five best of brazilian progressive rock! I give four stars to songs: Armina number 1, number 2 (including the three excerpts); three stars to bossa nova and jazz songs and, of course, five stars to wonderful song theme. So I give four stars to this album.

4 stars The final Som Imaginario album sees the group transform from a psychedelic band to a tight fusion unit, with enough classical, symphonic and psychedelic influences to give them a sound which will appeal to a broad range of prog listeners. Showing a great increase in the group's technical proficiency, the album title means "The Killing of the Pig" - not an outrageous anti- police statement, but a reference to a tradition from an old Portuguese town where a slaughter of swine at the height of winter is the centrepiece of an annual celebration. In this case, there's plenty of reason to celebrate, because having fattened up their musical capabilities Som Imaginario serve a delicious feast here.

4 stars Som Imaginário was a famous Brazilian group responsible for support the singer Milton Nascimento. The group released 3 albums between 1970 and 1973.

The band in its original lineup had Wagner Tiso (piano and keyboards), Tavito (vocals and acoustic guitars), Zé Rodrix (vocals, keyboards and flutes), Luiz Alves (bass), Robertinho Silva (drums) and Frederiko (guitars) and their 2 first records are more folk/psychedelic.

In 1973 the band was a quartet with: Wagner Tiso (piano and keyboards), Frederiko (guitars), Luiz Carlos (bass) and Robertinho (drums). With Wagner Tiso as a leader they were now almost instrumental and this is by far their best record.

Zé Rodrix were already with his trio Sá, Rodrix & Guarabira and Tavito still participate in the album as a guest playing acoustic 12 strings guitar in 3 tracks. But it's the hands of the maestro Wagner Tiso that makes all the difference in the world in Matança Do Porco (1973).

'Armina' and 'Matança Do Porco' are the keytracks, Progressive pearls lost in the haze of time. This is one of the true Brazilian classics.

4 stars Since I've started to listen progressive rock and fusion, I've been searching for some brazilian bands, and, someday, while i'm searching for Bacamarte's "Depois do Fim" I find this album.

3 stars Very surprising record for me discovering interesting music from Brazil. And so yet I discovered from this line-up many well known Brazilian musicians as Nana Vasconcelos on percussion (was for example in Pat Metheny Group recording many albums with them), Robertinho Silvaon drums and Milton N ...

4 stars Good album from Som Imaginário, a brazilian band formed in 70´s by great musicians that accompanied the great Milton Nascimento in his earlier albums and tours. I agree that this instrumental album is a mix of fusion and simphonic but I think that it has elements of brazilian popular music too ... (read more)
