4 stars A must have album from this important Romantic progressive band from Brazil, plentiful of classics!!The first track-"Danca das fadas" is one of the best "Celtic/symphonic excursions", ever written by Marcus Viana, with a powerful introduction of three vocalists together in the second aggressive part, and some interesting lyrics in Brazilian as well!!; the second one-Solidariedade" is another short but very interesting interplay between the acoustic guitar (very well played!!) and the flute, enriched with a pretty crescendo and a Latin feel too, which is exceptional!! "Amor Selvagem" is a soft song,but of course the following track "Pantanal"-a pretty composition by Viana- is better and moreover this latter is characterizing his personal taste for "The Latin soundtracks" here (even though generally the lyrics in English of the last track let me change idea a bit, talking about the real consistency of such "soundtracks", and this fact doesn't convince me at all; but it never minds ...).By passing through simple and melodic pop rock songs, at the end you can find the originality of this important band from Brazil,as long as you appreciate indeed such a great atmosphere like that one (despite of such uneven English lyrics) of "The Central Sun of the Universe", another "Viana's trademark" along with "Pantanal"!!

Delicious album and with a personal imprinting by Sagrado too, even though it is not completely essential!!

Recommended if you like this "Light Symphonic Progressive" genre
