Keyboard driven prog. This is Fabio Ribeiro's brazilian keyboard attack. The music is sadly very derivative to my ears because the other instruments seem to only serve the keyboards. When there is room for some guitar soloing it doesn't convince. This makes the listening experience rather dull after a while. The keyboards are almost exclusively digital. In the liner notes there are exactly 20 different keyboards mentioned. A good thing is that Ribeiro clearly is a very skilful player and if you prefer prog where the keyboards totally dominate this album could even be a jewel. There are some melodic lines here and there that will please fans of this style.

I have the original version of this album and the production quality is quite bad. Apparently the 2000 release has a better sound quality or at least that is what the other reviewer Fitzcarraldo says in his review.

Conclusion: For fans of keyboard driven prog.
