Cinema Show biography
Founded in Porto Alegre, Brazil in 1994

CINEMA SHOW is a modern modern quintet, comfortably moving in the symphonic and lyrical Progressive rock movement. The line-up illustrates the musical idea of "Danšas Dos Ventos", wonderfull album recorded in 1995 with a GENESIS-like sensivity. Half of the songs are great with classical influences and half of the songs are quiet dreamy landscapes.

Review by Hrychu

4 stars 3.5 stars actually, if that means anything to you. After reading through the reviews from the collaborator guys, I expected this to be garbage. Well, it turned out to be not so bad. Lots of people kept saying that it sounded like Genesis, but I couldn't hear the similarities... I mean... Danca Dos Ventos tries to be prog, that's and for a record that's nothing more than another retro prog album, It's got all the elements of classic prog you'd expect - guitar tritone riffs, busy drum passges as well as a plenty of mellow'ish parts, that can best be compared to Tai Phong. Cinema Show's disc isn't 100% 70's throwback though - you can hear the 90's burning through the old fashioned sound. And that's the biggest problem. The parts that aren't 70's cliches sound a bit lazy and uninspired (the "you can hear they were running out of ideas" kind of uninspired), similar to electronic chillout records of that era (which I admittively despise). Anyway, if you want some solid, 90s made, classic prog, with a bit of the cheese of late 70's eurobands like Tai Phong, I'd recommed you to give it a listen.

3 stars Forgotten Brazilian band from Porto Alegre, formed in 1994 with a stable five-piece line-up, including a female keyboardist, Karina aka Ka Lunn.The rest of the crew were singer Joao Marques, drummer Bolo Bang, bassist/guitarist Adelamir Luiz and guitarist Bili Netti.They released their only album ''Danca dos ventos'' on the Brazilian label Progressive Rock Worldwide in 1995.

Band's name is fully representative of Cinema Show's style, which was an elaborate Symphonic Rock heavily inspired by GENESIS but also with strong links to the music of early MARILLION.Long tracks with smooth and intricate arrangements, balanced nicely between guitar and keyboard deliveries, featuring extended instrumental passages with even some very complex ideas and plenty of changing climates.Only one track is sung in English with most of the lyrics coming in Portuguese, however there is not even slightest Latin-American vibe in the album, which is so British-sounding it often flirts with plagiarazing.The music though is pretty great with some great melodies and beautiful, dreamy keyboard parts of symphonic grandieur, while the vast amount of synthesizers come in a very MARK KELLY style.The length of the pieces provides tha appropriate instrumental room for decent interplays and long, melodious soundscapes and the nostalgic 70's stylings are more than obvious throughout the album.Fortunately the quality of the contained material is sufficient, because the production of the album is a bit muddy and at moments below average.

A lost pearl of 90's Neo/Symphonic Prog with lots of interesting moments and impressive arrangements and a strong candidate for all fans of MARILLION, GENESIS, YES, CAMEL and IQ.

1 stars I had a chance to pick up this album for the equiv of 5 ? about 8 years ago ,but the shop owner told me that if I had to listen to it , it would be full price. Needless to say I asked to listen to it , and did not buy it because of their name and everything it implied: Genesis Clowns (not spling mstak there, sir) . So the only way, I 'could've picked this up was to find a poor sod to buy it for triple that amount (no way I could make a gift of this album, my friends would take it as an insult from me) or give to Goodwill or Salvation Army for Tax refund - but let's stay human with the needy - give them chritmas albums so theydo not revolt against us , the elite of music.

I think that this has been a real long week and I will head for the woods....... As for the music, if you don't mind clowns/clones.......

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
