3 stars A very fine symphonic album by this interesting brazilian band. Great keyboards, guitars and flute interplay. Vocals on the other side are the weakest link. Not a bad voice, really, but vocals, like so many prog bands often do, seems to be an afterthought. Later on the band would get a much better singer and recorded a live album that showed their real potential. Anyway, the songs on A Gaze Between The Past And The Future are all good with some jazz influences here and there. Highlight to me is the first track, Exit From Calcuta, with some really inspired guitar breaks and wonderful flute.

All in all a good CD, with adequate prodution and fine playing. All musicians are very skillful. If you´re into symphonic prog and want to know something different, give it a try.
