5 stars A phenomenal album from the early 80's. Early 80's? you say. Yes, and man it doesn't sound like it, (it was recorded in '77). Fantastic guitar work, beautiful keyboards, a female singer with a great voice and drumming, flute and bass that sound like they're from an Itailian prog band from the early 70's. This is a must have that compares to the numerous Italian one-shots talked about forever on this site. They compare to SKY, (many classical sections throughout) PFM, (listen to the hommage to PFM and their song "Celebration" during the song 'Smog Alado') and a myriad of Italian one-shots but they have a sound all their own with that special tinge of South American prog. I can't say enough about how well Mario Neto plays his guitar be it acoustic, (which is mind- blowing) or electric, he's that good! There's one ballad that slows things up, (Passaro de Luz) yet Jane Duboc sings it wonderfully. Otherwise it's a full-blown prog rock gem of an album and must not be missed by fans of South American prog and overall symphonic prog fans. One of if not THE best symphonic album from the 80's; a 5 star classic!
