4 stars One of the few marvelous symphonic pieces from the 80's.

This is more or less a one stop band who put together a fine symphonic piece in the early 80's that I believe is really a highlight of the genre. From the beginning of the beautiful UFO, we are led through a series of bold and impressive pieces that rarely disappoint.

There are very many lush passages here that symphonic fans will just eat up, regardless of nationality. There's obviously many influences from other more famous prog bands, but Bacamarte manage to add a certain flair to it that keeps you on your toes and prevents anything from seeming dull or played-over.

Perhaps my favorite track at the moment is Ultimo Entardecer, which includes several moving passages and perhaps the one most symphonic fans can associate with. The guitar and keys are very active here and are the primary forces in the movement and transition of the piece. My only gripe throughout much of this album is the electric guitar tone, other than that, it's absolutely exquisite.

A wonderful gem from Brazil that deserves to be in the same ranks as other great symphonic records. This is easily one of the best debut albums I have ever heard, and a stunning piece of music that I believe most prog fans would enjoy.
