Os Mutantes biography
OS MUTANTES was a Brazilian band formed in the late sixties, pretty much influenced in the beginning by the BEATLES and by the Brazilian musical scene at the time (the movement called Tropicalia, which they participated then). In the beginning, the band was formed by Rita Lee (vocals and percussion), Sergio Dias (guitar and vocals) and his brother Arnaldo Baptista (bass, keyboards and vocals), with Ronaldo "Dinho" Leme on drums as invited musician. They were very psychedelic at their first formation (sounding more or less to BEATLES´s "Sgt. Peppers"), filled with a touch of humour and experimentalism, then they "evolved" to a very progressive "like YES" style in the end.

Their first album, untitled "Os Mutantes", was a break down in the Brazilian scene, since they brought with their music the experimentalism that was missing in our music. They participated constantly in TV music festivals, and since they were one of the first Brazilian band to play with electric guitars in those festivals, the crowd (formed basically by close minded students and musicians) frequently boo then through the whole festival! Then they continuously keep evolving (and done one of the greatest psychedelic album that I ever have the pleasure to hear, called "A Divina Comédia or Ando Meio Desligado") till one album called "Hoje é o Primeiro Dia do Resto das Nossas Vidas", where they begin to show the prog influence brought by YES (actually this album is credit to Rita Lee, but since they all participated and produced it, it's considered to be a MUTANTES album). And with Rita Lee leaving the band to pursuit a solo career, Sergio and Arnaldo left the psychedelic style to fully embrace the prog style, with their last two studio albums: "O A e o Z" e "Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol" (this one was done with only one of their first members, Sergio Dias, since Arnaldo left the band due to LSD problems, pretty much like Syd BARRETT from PINK FLOYD).

It's a highly recommended band to everyone who enjoys experimentalistic psychedelic humorous kind of music of the late sixties and early seventies, and the last albums to those who also like YES prog style.

Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol
Os Mutantes Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Coming at a point in Os Mutantes career where the influence of that distinctly Brazilian style of psychedelia known as tropicalia had ebbed from their music to be replaced by wide-ranging and globally informed progressive rock, Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol is a convincing prog workout that makes space for extended instrumental jams which combine a few psychedelic undertones with a high standard of musicianship that any progressive rock band would envy. At points, the combination puts me in mind of early Krautrock bands, particularly a less Middle Eastern-flavoured Agitation Free or a less tripped-out Amon Duul II. In short, it's the sound of Os Mutantes entering a mutated maturity.

Os Mutantes Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars True to their name, Os Mutantes began to mutate strangely after their debut album, leaning more heavily on the experimental and psychedelic side of their sound whilst never quite losing touch with their tropicalia roots. This second album finds them mutating into Brazil's answer to the Mothers of Invention, with a wild sense of humour and modernist classical musical influence shaking up the band's approach and prompting them to offer more unconventional song structures and compositions. Guest performances from Rogério Duprat on Magica and the duo of Zé do Rancho and Mariazinha on Dois Mil E Um further enrich the group's sound.

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Os Mutantes' debut album finds the gang playing in the then-hot Tropic'lia style, a distinctly Brazilian flavour of psychedelic music filtered through local musical styles. Adding a little samba to your psych turns out to be a decidedly worthwhile experiment, and the Baptista brothers (along with female vocalist Rita Lee) execute it magnificently without a hint of trepidation or hesitancy.

It's all the more impressive when you consider that the military government of Brazil at the time viewed the Tropic'lia scene with deep suspicion (and indeed would arrest several of its core members in the same year this album came out). We should be glad that Os Mutantes managed to defy the hostility of the authorities and get this music out for the world to enjoy.

Fool Metal Jack
Os Mutantes Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by VOTOMS

4 stars I haven't tried their previous one yet, "Haih... or Amortecedor...", so the last Mutantes impression that I have on my mind is their two and great progressive efforts at 73/74. The results are a band back in the psychedelic way, but in a experimental modern manner (non- commercial) and heavier at the first tracks. I miss the prog keyboards. The tropicalia scene masters are not the same, because the band formation is not the same. And the songwriting aren't portuguese anymore. But I'm talking about the enjoyment of this album, and it's worth.

The album begins with the neilyoungish folk The Dream is Gone. It's a good track, a good opening. So, it's followed by the main title Fool Metal Jack, a heavy psychedelic noisy song. I really love it. Very very very relevant! Picadilly Willie is a heavy psychedelic blues, out of cliche and sameness. At the fourth track, Ganjaman, we have some kind of tribal beatles, and trust me, it works. The drums are the higher point here. Look Out is another heavy rock psychedelic oriented. Eu Descobri is the portuguese singing (female vocals) from Fool Metal Jack, an acoustic song. I like this too. Time and Space is an experimental track, but some vocal flaws. To Make It Beautiful is a cool soft rock. Once Upon a Flight is an awesome track IMO, a mix of folk, psychedelia and metal guitars. Oh, and the keyboards are cool at this track, but it could be more apparent. Into Limbo could be better, weak vocals sometimes. But it's a good one, at the album level. Bangladesh is the weak side of this album, a folkish boring track. Valse LSD it's atmospheric and acoustic, and it fits right as an ending track.

This is not an essential album for any collector, Os Mutantes history has ended long ago. But this one is an excelent addition.

Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol
Os Mutantes Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by VOTOMS

5 stars Os Mutantes last album, for real. After O 'A' E O 'Z', those guys keep the prog rolling, and this is one of the best prog albums from Brazil. It was underrated by media. From the first track, Deixe Entrar Um Pouco D'Água No Quintal (one of the highlights of the album) to last, I have not found a bad song. The keyboards/moog here are wonderful. Os Mutantes reaches the top of the brazilian progressive rock. If the whole world knows the brazilian hard times and history that Os Mutantes and other bands from the same era have lived, they would be placed beside the most influential prog rock bands.

O 'A' E O 'Z'
Os Mutantes Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by VOTOMS

5 stars Wow! Rita Lee has left the band, and then, Os Mutantes have found their own way into progressive rock. And this was awesome! O 'A' E O 'Z' is Another masterpiece from Os Mutantes, but this time, into progressive rock. The first and main track strikes with majestic keyboards, mellotron and organ a la ELP and some kind of Genesis feeling. I can feel the band emanating energy at this point. Rolling Stones, the second track, offers a very nice bassline and hammond solos. Você Sabe is another great track, acoustic and progressive. The vocals remind me of Yes at times. Hey Joe is an epic symphonic song with very pleasent passages. Uma Pessoa Só goes better and better, and the second half of the song are probably one of the best times at this album. The ending track lyrics, song and title, Ainda Vou Transar Com Você, is where the band shows that their early sense of humor didn't die, but it's the worst song here, but it's not bad at all.

Better than Os Mutantes psychedelic debut? Maybe. This is the first progressive victory by the band. Must check.

Mutantes E Seus Cometas No País Do Baurets
Os Mutantes Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by VOTOMS

3 stars After O Jardim Elétrico, Os Mutantes has recorded a better album: Mutantes E Seus Cometas No Pa's Do Baurets. But knowing the members capacity, this could be better. The first track, "Posso Perder Minha Mulher, Minha M'e, Desde Que Eu Tenha O Rock And Roll", is kinda boring in my honest opinion. This song tries to be funny, but it wasn't. It was really a weak point for this album. The highlights: The beautiful Balada do Louco and the main song, Mutantes E Seus Cometas No Pa's Do Baurets.

It's a good album. But I'll repeat: It could be better.

Hoje é o Primeiro Dia do Resto da Sua Vida
Os Mutantes Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by VOTOMS

1 stars First, this is not a Mutantes official album, it was recorded as a Rita Lee solo album (Os Mutantes could not release more than one album per year). And it was a big downfall. After the terrible bad psychedelic attempt with Jardim Elétrico, the band grows a little higher with the Mutantes E Seus Cometas No País Do Baurets, but they found a musical garbage again right after that. I couldn't believe they are the same band that was playing "Panis et Circenses". This was the last album with Rita Lee. The songs are very forgettable. I can't remember anything from this album. Skip this, please.

Jardim Elétrico
Os Mutantes Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by VOTOMS

1 stars I notice a big endeavor. I notice it did not work. This was the worst album from Os Mutantes since their debut. Even with the brazilian censorship and the hard times, they could do very impressive works, like their debut, so it does not justify this lame attempt. I found nothing new here. Only a bunch of poor songs, without creativity, without innovation. The lyrics are weak. The songs are weak. Maybe a few average songs, but it can't save the album rating for me. Jardim Elétrico tries to recycle the psychedelic sound, but it ends terrible. Highlights? It's hard to choose any song here. The three "least worst" songs: Technicolor, Jardim Elétrico and Lady Lady.

The main track is wonderful and opens the album with sort of caunterbury keys feeling. But hold your expectations. The same as the previous one, A Divina Comédia Ou Ando Meio Desligado lost the precious side into the fog of poor compositions. Again, Os Mutantes album is under attack: and it's the strike of the boring tracks. It have very childish tracks. But "Ando Meio Desligado" is a very pleasent track, and it's worth. You might check the album for the good tracks.
