Prog Reviewer
5 stars The prog world was robbed of one of its most overlooked talents when Marco Antônio Araújo died in early 1986, not least because his final album - Lucas - shows such an incredible musical growth. The crown jewel of the album is the side-long epic Lembranças, a rowdy composition which shows more drama and flair that suggested by the more tranquil album that preceded this (Entre Um Silencio E Outro), but the second side has a few gems too, with Araújo's Anthony Phillips-like classical guitar skills on display just as much as his skills as a band leader and composer. The album concludes with a number dedicated to Jimmy Page, though only the folkiest Led Zeppelin moments are called on here. If this is to be Araújo's monument, it's certainly one to be proud of.
Warthur | 5/5 |
