4 stars First, i'd like to dedicate this review to "evenless" for his encouraging words. And besides his wife Brazilian ! It's hard to believe that this record came out of that most maligned decade, the eighties.This album would stand out no matter when it was released, but it's like the blazing sun in that darkest of musical times. I can't say enough about how beautifully the songs are arranged, or the amazing musicianship, as each member is allowed to breathe, and be heard clearly.

The record opens with "UFO" a catchy, melodic tune with a delicate acoustic guitar intro that is joined by a flute melody and eventually drums and synths about 2 minutes in. "Smog Alado" opens with a flute melody that is joined by the guitar, in this beautiful uptempo song with fantastic female vocals. "Miragem" features flute and guitar again leading the way. What a great sound after 3 minutes. "Passaro de Luz" opens with those excellent female vocals that are accompanied by some outstanding guitar . Man, this guy can play such complex, intricate melodies ! "Cano" is an uptempo tune with some incredible drumming.

"Ultimo Entardecer" features a guitar style and sound that is almost identicle to Neil Young's playing on the song "Like A Hurricane". Check it out ! There is some great piano in this as well as the guitar.This may be my favourite song on the album. "Controversia" is a jazzy instrumental with the piano leading the way.The self titled track "Depois Do Fim" features more great vocals and intricate guitar playing as well as organ, flute and keys.The drumming is again excellent. The final song "Mirante das Estrelas" is an uptempo song with great sounding synths and more amazing guitar work from Mario Neto, his name deserves to be mentioned.

This is a great album that ranks along side of some of the beautiful legendary Italian records of the seventies. 4.5 stars.
