2 stars Very laid back, almost west coast rock like space prog by this Brazilian band. They have been in business for almost three decades and this one is their latest album.

I am pretty sure their music goes down well in South America. It is rich in hammond organs and almost has a calypso feeling to it. It is not rich in content though. It is too laid back and non-eventful in my view. Each melodies are taken out to it's full extent. The result is boredom. There are some good melodies here. But there is not enough of them to captivate me. The vocals are also very low in the mix and does not come through at all. It is music to sleep to. Not music to review and try to take serious as a piece of music. It is a soundscape.

The music does not hit home and the quality of the songs are not great. But all is not lost. The opening song is good. The rest is something I will soon forget. I am sure this is a great band. But this album is not.

2 stars
