Cartoon biography
CARTOON (not to be confused with the Australian and American bands of the same name) is a Brazilian quartet whose style resembles that of OS MUTANTES - an experimental psychedelic band at the center of Brazil's rock-tinged 'tropicalia' movement in the late 60's. CARTOON's sound is a combination of rock, classical and Brazilian music that features exotic instruments alongside the traditional rock staple of bass, guitar, keyboards and drums. With their humour and impromptu musical happenings, their live shows are reputed to be real attention getters - befitting the band's name.

Their first album, "Martelo" (1999), features a raw, untamed sound with a mixture of KING CRIMSON, ZAPPA, TRYO, EXIMIO and Sergio Mendes influences (the vocals are in Portuguese). Their second album, "Bigorna" (subtitled 'The Real History of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table') is a concept album, a spoof on the legend of King Arthur - nothing remotely similar to Rick WAKEMAN's solemn "Myths and Legends". Very irreverently, the band plays fast and furious, showing flashes of ZAPPA, Alex Harvey, The BEATLES, The BEACH BOYS and SPLITZ ENZ all mixed together, yet they manage to add the usual prog fare of YES and GENESIS. The production is quite good and the material is upbeat and accessible, but you can also hear some nice symphonic arrangements throughout, loads of keyboards, melodic guitars and lots of acoustic textures. The (all-English) vocals vary from operatic to light hearted, somewhat reminiscent of 10 CC. This CD comes with a comic book, written in Portuguese.

If you're in the mood for some entertaining prog that doesn't take itself too seriously, both albums are recommended, particularly the second.

Cartoon Eclectic Prog

Review by ProgShine
Collaborator Errors & Omissions Team

2 stars So, this is the album that I was waiting 5 years to listen?!?

Cartoon was one of the most promissing and interesting Progressive bands in Brazil. All of their albums were weird and at the same time catchy, full of great songs, great melodies and really interesting concepts in their lyrics and stories.

Now, first things first. If you look at this cover and asked yourself: "What the hell, they're Bee Gees now?" Well, I cannot blame you for thinking like that, this cover is trully horrendous and doesn't fit their music AT ALL. At the same time, the band went into a huge change when it comes to their sound, thus the new looks.

Cartoon changed a lot in these last 5 years, they've been trying the big audience, even participating, and going into the finals, in one of those 'Have Talent' kind of shows from the Brazilian TV called Breakout (probably the show is also worldwide, I dunno).

Unbeatable (2013) is not necessarily a horrible album, some 'old' Cartoon songs like 'The Golden Chariot', 'Lazaru's Feet' (the only not written by vocalist bassist Khadhu), 'Time Is Running' and 'On The Judgement Day' show us the good Cartoon and how they could have recorded a very good album.

On the other hand you have songs like 'Until I Found You' (a lame love song), 'She' (that besides the great bass line is just a pop tune), 'Promises' (a The Who ballad), are just unbearable (no pun intended) or simply plan.

But after all, there's no more the once great Prog Rock band, even on the good songs!

A sad continuation for their career, they'll probably find some more fans (not really, they're still singing in English and for Brazilian market this will not work) but we certainly have lost a good band.

If you wanna to comprove my words, you can listen to the whole album (the others too) on their website: bandacartoon.com.br/site/album/unbeatable/

Review by Marty McFly
Special Collaborator Errors and Omissions Team

4 stars Continuing marvelous journey from Bigorna, Estribo is considerably weaker than their epic album. Still using weird and funny (some call them cheesy, I don't) themes, still incorporating cabaret melodies and ridiculous style of singing (as in Heaven't My Home for example), but it's simply not as strong as the album before. Maybe it's because I heard this already and honestly, some elements are not used again, or elaborated more thoroughly, but recycled. Not big problem though, because last two tracks Velut Luna and God Speed improves the rating. Again, featuring beautiful cover and fantasy themes (or at least divine), this album will mostly please those who liked previous album. It's probably good album to start with as well, it's not that "crazy" as Bigorna and will set the mood (and warm the bed) for previous two albums.

4(-), as usual here, nice bass work. Smooth and clean.

Review by Marty McFly
Special Collaborator Errors and Omissions Team

5 stars Yep, the singer owns nice voice, very suitable for such a record. But where are my manners, what am I thinking, I should introduce this album properly first: It's crazy, it's absolutely, insanely and decisively crazy. And also, I almost forgot, it's crazy.

But intentionally, for a purpose. Interesting, much more shapeshifting than chameleon (country, did somebody said anything about it yet ? no ? ok, forgot it, nothing about it.

Classical compositions, metal, rock, acoustic, a capella singing, solos (on various instruments), medieval music (you know, folk fairs) and by the way also folk and many more styles. Divide it by 73 minutes and you have result). Believe me, it sounds consistent enough to interest you.

5(-) if I am able to loud out voice my opinion.

EDIT May 10 - Let's enhance this rather short review. Ratings stands, the more I listen this album the more I am confined that I will stay faithful to this album and will like it.

It's long album, 74 minutes long. This would often turn into fiasco, blatant work that has little to offer. But in this case, I'm very glad It's virtually unknown (was this band marked as Prog Related when I posted this review, not as Eclectic as it is now).

Bass guitar is quite prominent here, handles by main vocalist (how are they teamed together can be seen for example on youtube video). Funny thing is that they lack electric guitar on this particular concert, instead they are using acoustic version.

What I said before about elements / influences this album uses, I thing I wasn't exact. This album uses almost everything that is available in connected genres (no rap, but for example folk). Tracks are also orchestrated sometimes. Probably synths, but still it's advantage.

Reminds me Beardfish, group with which Cartoon shares "crazy" factor ("haunted by pirates and seaguls on the main street"). I can really recommend this to everyone, as most people will find something good here. And I suppose that majority will like it. If only more people knew this album.

Review by ProgShine
Collaborator Errors & Omissions Team

5 stars 01. Preface Epic beginning, (it could not be different due to the concept of the disc). A marvellous part of arpegios of piano, vocalizations guitars renascentistas, and melodies so that the disc begins very well.

02. From The Hands Of God Here it begins the narrative, vocal simply marvellous near the keyed guitars and guitars doing an almost imperceptible 2nd, but essential plan. Many details in the bottom. A 2nd heavier part enters, to turn a calm and calm melody. Many voices enter on the stage. To turn Rock with vocal irreproachable. Ground of guitar very well 'talked' to the base.

03. Knights Nightmare Beautiful introduction to wool Rush. Why Khadhu interprets several characters of the history, enchanting melody, I catch myself when several times are singing this refrain in the day! Great keyboards! ' I just wanna be king! ' in order that enter guitars and synthesizers of the most legal and ' duels ' doing bed for the grounds. Vocal and. I go flat of sax.

04. King's Song Marvellous! The most energetic and sensational beginning for a song that soon is followed of a brilliant riff and grand melody. Rock 'n' Roll! Vocal what!

05. King's Fugue Classic guitar, echoes of Steve Hacket in the Wind and Whuthering (Genesis) in all the guitars of this music, cello accompanying. Flutes, cello, piano, guitar, completely at a time.

06. She Smiled Sweet. Moroccan influence, I drive, vocal in falsetto, adorable! Violins, vocal, guitar, keyboards. The melodies are mixed in a dance that it was not possible to predict. To finish in almost Norwegian Wood (The Beatles).

07. Guinevere Genesis! Certainly the beginning reminded of me. The grand melodies. Touching I join Cello. Lovely melody!

08. Marriage Celebrate! It is a marriage. Swim more just than to have a 'party-going' beginning soon to celebrate the union in love! And the priest celebrates the marriage.

09. Show Me Where Love Lives Ballad of piano I distill Arnaldo Baptista (Mutantes), with a vocal one somewhat more serious (us two senses). Beautiful instrumental lines (including the cello).

10. Lily Fears Perfection blues composed of guitar, synthesizer between the melodies. A ballad in the best sense of the word. Vocal? Vow that is a man singing? Marvellous what .

11. The Warning . reprimand stuck in Lily Fears, so that the violin plays the principal part together with the bases of keyboard and beautiful melodies of bass. Progressive entry in the last one so that the ground of guitar shines! I find that to more 'Progressive of the album. Two guitars guitar duelando. marked, broken and hypnotic battery.

12. March Of Despair a) She's Coming It begins in the best style Monthy Piton, with a beautiful melody of bass.

b) Cool Down Emily! Honky Tonk, Night club, is lowered by me wha wha. Vocal macabre! Monthy total Python of the time of In search of the Sacred Glass.

c) Song Of Despair Sambăo, and of the good ones, with the synthesizer doing the base, and the people amusing while it touches.

13. Apocalypstic Man It begins already eletrizante and exciting, vocal duelados and riffs weighed. Refrain of 'sticky' melody and vocal quite worked. A vocal sequence totally influenced by Gentle Giant. And more Rock of Riffs.

14. Alberich's Blues Vocal beginning. Beautiful work of guitar and piano, a perfection differentiated Blues. And the circus arrives in the city! Progressive energetic and vital rock for the entry of .

15. Letter you it Marion Beautiful 'swinging' in this music. Marvellous and simple refrain of melody. And the bass continues in his journey because of creating the perfect atmosphere so that the cither between and it gives an about-turn in the sound. And since the disc is commanded by the guitars several of the melodies are done by him. Effects of 'aged' voice give a lovely tone for a part of the letter. Why between one more rock of voices.

16. In The Gates Of Hell Prog, total jazz/fusion oriental style Mahavishnu Orchestra with cither and everything. An introduction percussiva for the entry of .

17. The Last Battle The truthful prog 70's of the disc with his 9′29 of duration, a bass what it sends to John Myung (Dream Theater). After the vocal part, violin enters and more rebirth, with beautiful vocal. Jazz or almost! At least like the Cartoon. And a perfection prog with epic proportions follows it with straight everything that an instrumental far-reaching debit to have, emotion on the surface of the soul. Part of magisterial close

18. The Great Gates Of Freedom To shut the disc in it swims better (for a bear I eat) of what a ground of lovely, melodious and sensational bass to begin the music. Keyboards announce: the entries of the perception were opened. Follow that a guitar what one is not Steve Hacket I give up! Shutting in in almost the Brazilian Indian epic poet marches marvellously!

Melodiously beautiful, vocal completed, instrumental when the Rickenbacker de Chris Squire (Yes) so sharpened how much, this disc of the Cartoon was deserving to be between the great ones of the progressive one, and also it should have more distinction mundialmente if he spoke.

4 stars Ecletic and really weird this album caught you in a non-stop listening, you put in the repeat and listen over and over without getting tired.The music all shaped in a form that you can capture the tune in a real progressive rock opera, Kadhu can catch a "delta" of feelings that makes you get in the history.Bhydhu did a great job in the drums.. no words to describe the March of Despair.If you wanting to find something peculiar and beautiful in the prog scene just listen to it.

4 stars Like "Tommy", from "The Who", is a Rock Opera. And a great one! It's all in English and tells the story of King Arthur and the knights of the round table in a very diferent way. Excellent musicians and a very good recording. Khadhu, the singer, is one of the best I've ever known. Recomended!

3 stars Very Good disc! The best brazilian progressive rock band from nowadays. Recomended!!! I won't describe each song, but I can tell that they're very good. "Abertura", "Duend's", "First Lake Conclusion" and "Lágrimas de Vidro" Are excelents. Their second disc, Bigorna, is better.
