4 stars 4,5 really !!! This is my first review about a live album. in fact this album have a few interesting details. In spite to be a live album, all tracks are unpublished an unusual feature in live albums and I read an interview with the leader of the band ( the guitarrist Sérgio Dias Baptista) where he said which was originally a double album . Leaving aside this considerations, the album seems to me a natural extension and improvement of "Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol" (the most really progressive album from the band - until that moment). The disk is a mix of symphonic and space prog, more framed in the 70's progressive rock style (like the mentioned previous album) and very distant of the 60's psychedelic sound from the "Rita Lee "Era". The best track are the track 2." Pot-Pourri / Bem-vindos / Mistérios" ( the first theme "Bem-vindos" is an overture for the second theme "Mistérios" a heavy/psich prog) ,track 3 ." Pot-Pourri / Trem / Dança Do Ventos" (in the second movement "Dança dos Ventos" a instrumental theme where I can detach the the steel-guitar solo from Sergio Dias a hard to find instrument in Brazillian progressive rock) and this steel-guitar returns in some moments from the track 4." Sagitárius" ( a very beautiful and lyrical melody) , the track 7." Loucura Pouca É Bobagem" (my highlights in this track go to the electric-guitar/moog "duo" , the track 9. "Rock'n'Roll City" ( and the fuzzy guitar from Sérgio Dias) and the track 11 "Grand Finalle" ( a "pompous" martial theme),. The disk presents great musicians in great performance ! My rate is 4 stars !!!
