4 stars Outstanding Brazilian band,started in Fortaleza in early-80's.They focused more on their local live performances during their early years,but the 90's find the band getting into a more serious mold,sending a demo tape to the Brazilian label Progressive Rock Worldwide.The label decided to release their self-titled debut in 1995.

Fortunately this sextet was not lost and their debut offers some really splendid flute-driven Symphonic Rock with a bit of Brazilian Ethnic influences, great guitars and some grandiose organ and synths throughout.Not to speak about the vocals of founding member Paulo Rossglow,who have a balanced romantic and at the same time gracious feeling.The compositions are really superb with some great number of breaks to be heard but also deeped into melody,harmonic passages and furious interplays.Flutist Ulissea Germano is out of another planet,sometimes delivering strong flute drives in the vein of JETHRO TULL/OSANNA,other ones being more smooth and melodic on his performance close to the likes of WURTEMBERG.He is in a constant battle with Gilmar Moura keyboards,who's style is reminiscent of Italian bands like NUOVA ERA or IL CASTELLO DI ATLANTE.As for the guitars of Marcelo Macedo,these come as another highlight, ranging from strong groovy playing to ultra- melodic solos.

With not a simply boring moment,''Trem do futuro'' belongs among the best Symphonic Rock albums to have seen the light in the 90's.Grandiose, bombastic but also melodic and delicate music.Do yourself a favor and listen to this album,it will be a fantastic experience.Highly recommended.
