Prog Reviewer
3 stars With this album "Os Mutantes" confirmed in a certain way their proggy move which they initiated in their previous album. But it is of course a daunting task to supersedes "OAEOZ" or even to match it.

The start of this album is somewhat difficult to apprehend. The opening number almost sounding heavy while "Pitágoras" is fully ELP-ish and features a very good piano work, complex and varied. The mood goes from the sweetest delicacy to a much stronger band work. A highlight.

It is very different from the sensitiveness of a song like "Desanuviar". Almost an Italian symphonic song. It is a real pleasure to listen to this band while he sounds like this. From a sweet intro, the song builds up crescendo and ends up in a great maelstrom of keyboards. It is not really elaborate, but so pleasant and accessible. This is my favorite track on "Tudo Foi.".

The band also got back to some rocking mood, like they were used to in some earlier works. This aspect of their music is not the one I prefer. I always feel them just average ("Eu Só Penso.").

The title track is the longest one of this album and to some extent, it is a combination of both atmospheres one can get on this album. Fine and melodic vocals, superb symphonic music combined with a jazzier approach during the final part. Another very good song.

It's a pity that the "Mutantes" didn't dig further into their most prog inspiration. As such, three stars for this good album (but too much dedicated to pure rock music).
