3 stars Guitarist and leader of Poços & Nuvens.His interests go beyond music, as he was also a doctoral candidate in literature at the Federal University of Santa Maria, while he has also published series of essays and chronicles along with a book of poems in 1997.Musicwise Werlang is a professor of Classical Guitar and Music History at the University of Passo Fundo.He released his sole personal album ''Memorias do tempo'' in 2008, at a time when everyone thought that Poços & Nuvens were propably inactive.But big part of the team is present on the album, Savio Werlang on keyboards, Iva Giraca on violin, Rodrigo Bernardon on drums.The rest of his guesting list is Samuca Quadros on keyboards, Thiago Resende on bass, Deborah Rosa and Eliane Sommer on vocals and Gerson Rios Leme on programming.Album came out on the Brazilian label Rock Symphony.

The compositions in here can be divided in two categories.The short tracks showcase Werlang's diversity as a guitarist and arranger, creating lyrical or instrumental themes with an array of influences, including Brazilian Folk, Classical Music and Jazz, mainly based on acoustic strings, keyboards and violin, a bit reminiscent of SERGIO BENCHIMOL's solo efforts.Pastoral musicianship with expressive, peaceful female and male vocals, but a deep knowledge on music composition, recorded as folky mini-suites.Longer tracks are definitely more symphonic and progressive.Werlang combines a sinister electric guitar playing with mellow, tribal inspirations and atmospheric keyboards, offering multi-themed pieces with some certain grandiosity and very good interplays, like on the 10-min. nice title-track.The 12-min. ''Rosa Mistica'' shows an unexpected side of Werlang, this is closer to early- to mid-70's KING CRIMSON with the pronounced use of violin and dark, electric textures, still the second part is clearly more symphonic with melodic guitars and sharp keyboards and a surprising harsichord interlude after the middle.''Saudades da serra'' offer another 6 minutes of South-American Symphonic/Heavy Rock with organ and guitars in evidence and ethereal singing lines.

South American, traditional echoes delivered in symphonic orchestrations and some Progressive Rock tension.Interesting and recommended album, pretty similar to the work of Werlang with POCOS E NUVENS.

4 stars I have to admit it. I'm a sucker for good Spanish guitar in a prog setting. And this album fills that bill.

The album begins with some fine acoustic guitar work by Gerson Werlang in the opening track. This serves as an appetizwer before the main course, Memorias Do Tempo. This track is a full symphonic prog piece, where Werlang introduces his electric guitar. And if I thought his acoustic playing was good, well his electric is even better. On this, and the other two longer tracks, Rosa Mistica and Saudades Da Serra, he has created some excellent symphonic pieces with a South American flair (Is that an accordion I hear?)

The shorter song, however, tend to pale somewhat against these. While his guitaring is good, I find the compositions to be a bit too ordinary.

But since more than half of the album is made up of the three spectacular pieces, it weighs my rating a bit more toward four stars than three.
