Quantum biography
A Brazilian band formed at the beginning of the 80s, QUANTUM remained together for two years only. Anyway, it was long enough for them to release their namesake debut album in 1983, which sold more than 6,000 copies. Their style was clearly influenced by CAMEL and Hackett-era GENESIS with added elements of jazzy nature, which provided some peculiar swing to the overall symphonic sound. The 1993 CD re-released edition included a bonus track recorded before their break-up with a different bass player. This bonus track, "Presságio", was actually part of the repertoire of a second album that would never get to be released. Or so it seems, since rumor has it that an actual QUANTUM second album from that era has been briefly circulating among collectors and fans in cassette format. But a definitely real second QUANTUM offering wnt to see the light of day in 1994, when the group reformed and recorded "Quantum II". The new line-up included two keyboardists and no guitarist. This factor made their sound closer to the stylish trend of neo-prog, but the majestic ornaments of old school symphonic prog remained consistent: it way remind the listener of compatriots DOGMA and BLESQI ZATSAZ.

Recommended to lovers of CAMEL, GENESIS, as well as appreciators of the particular flavors of South American symph prog.

Quantum Symphonic Prog

Review by GKR

4 stars Cant help it to call them the Brazilian SBB. Sure, nothing marks a really strong and obvious conection, but the sound is so electric and dinamic and fluid... I tend not to like this kind of thing, it remind me the bad side of 1980's (as what Camel turn out for example).

But the good thing about them is taht they do not use the drum machine, so a lot of good tricks are to be listen and give a live-r feeling to the whole album. The keyboards are what most call your attention, of course, but all songs differ from each other: some are build in nice guitar motives, other repetitive and clean bass sounds.

This album is completly unknow, as far as I am concerned, but it shouldnt be. Four solid stars.

Quantum Symphonic Prog

Review by Yezdejerd III

3 stars This is one of these cases of a band that sounds clearly in the "neoprogressive" style (very disgusting to me) that against all pre-judgements gets highs moments of inspiration and imagination. Like in any neoprogressive band the "plastic-sound" of artificial keyboards (it means: no Hammond, Mellotrons, Moogs and other analogic instruments) is poor and boring. But in the case of Quantum another qualities supply effectly this fact. The voice of Luiz Seman and his style to sing is superlative to save the stuff. The arrengements of a classic "keyboard trio" of the 70's are here presents, more in the melodic way of Jurgen Fritz's Triunvirat that in the flamboyant/bizarre EL&P style, but always with inteligence and fine elegancy.

Quantum Symphonic Prog

Review by Cesar Inca
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Quantum is a Brazilian symphonic prog act, very much in a Camel-esque vein, with some slight touches of jazz that are spread in some passages of the album: as a kind of analogy, I can describe Quantum's music as a compromise between "Moon Madness" and Sinclair-era Camel, but always keeping a subtly constrained spirit, never getting too mesmeric or too complex. It is this latter factor that makes them stand a bit close to the neo-prog structure, but generally speaking, Quantum's offering is more closely related to the melodic flavours of 70s symphonic prog than the modernized reinvention proposed by the neo ideology. Their 1983 debut album is entirely instrumental, so the whole trick lies in the appeal of the musical ideas and the effectiveness of the musicians' interplay: and indeed, both these factors work quite well since the compositions are evidently pleasant and the performance level is quite solid, despite the fact that the material isn't notably challenging. The overall good taste that inspired the melodic beauty of all compositions turns out to be the main key to this album's major qualities. The repertoire, as a whole, preserves a tight cohesion without reaching a boring sameness, given the fact that the material's appeal works on fluidly on a permanent basis. The 9-minute long opener 'Tema Etéreo' starts sweet and dreamy during its first half, then turning to a more up-tempo mood for the latter half: it is then followed by 'Chuva', a brief, eerie nocturne based on an recurrent chord progression on guitar. 'Acapulco' and 'Inter Vivos' are, IMHO, the most impressive tracks in the album since they comprise the most attractive musical ideas and portray Quantum's artistic essence in a truly confident manner - the elegant fluidity of the guitar-keyboard interplaying and the sensible precision of the rhythm section speak for themselves as the band moves along through shifting motifs and moods. 'Sonata' is yet another not- too-long eerie composition: a really beautiful one, indeed. This one serves as a sort of prelude to the official repertoire's up-tempo closure, whose title is the band's name itself: even though it doesn't equal the magic of tracks 3 & 4, it sure is catchy enough to keep the listener's attention right until the end. The CD edition contains a bonus track, 'Presságio', which finds the band exploring a slightly poppier side of their prog - nice, but nothing special. For the official repertoire alone, the "Quantum" genuinely deserves to be regarded as great to excellent: 3.75 stars.
Thanks to the Symphonic Team for the artist addition. and to Gentle Giant for the last updates
