4 stars Well, I was wondering (wandering?) if Mutantes came from Europe or North America, considering their history, their music, their problems, etc. they could easily top with some 'giants' of the prog-rock as a whole. Instead of half dozen or little more reviews - mostly made by Brazilians, their albums should have hundreds of reviews and several threads on our forum.

The fact is that they were really great - dinosaurs, in the best sense of the word. It is obvious also that they influenced many bands of other parts although they rarely credit them but several known and celebrated musicians, prog and non-prog, when visiting Brazil are seen searching for their work, for some bootleg, some information not only for enjoying Mutantes' sound but also to drain some different tune or chord - even when they were done more than 30 years ago!

This album "Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol" is the climax of a career that started back in 1965 when 2 garage rock bands joined to form an experimental new one called O'Seis that recorded one single so rare and pursued like the Sword of Alexander. Later they changed their name to Mutantes, the pre-history ended and began the history that reached its enlightment era with the present album.

All songs are apparently similar, giving this album the contours of a conceptual one, but this work never sound boring or uninteresting. It flows accordingly and even some production flaws are easily excused - they tried to be and to do the best they could and it's also identified along the tracks that exsudates honesty and sincerity. I am not going to pick any particular song for not being unfair with the album itself and the listeners themselves. All are hearable and pleasant and deserve to be heard.

Ok, this album is much more a landmark than a masterpiece, hence a fantastic, splendid, obligatory add to any music collection. Total: 4.
