5 stars This is probably the most essential masterpiece when it comes to brazilian prog. Flávio Venturini makes a spectacular job here, giving the difference from their two first albums. Hey Amigo starts with a very groovy riff, and shows to be a classic seventies rock song with a strong brazilian soul in it. Queimada starts with a very brazilian beat on the acoustic guitar, as well as the vocals, which reminds of most of brazilian popular music. Pano de Fundo is a more rock track, with beautiful harmonized vocals, a good guitar solo and basslines, which sounds like Chris Squire. Ponto Final starts with a catchy piano played by Venturini and evolves into a fabulous synth-driven instrumental song, the second best track of the album. Volte na Próxima Semana is another groovy sound with very rocky instrumentation, but very brazilian vocalizations, making a mix between the two atmospheres. Criaturas da Noite sounds like a lullaby, with a pretty piano playing and soft vocals, with some organ playing in the back. Jogo das Pedras is a happy-sounding song with great melody and a brazilian influenced beat and vocalization. The last track and from far the best, is the huge masterpiece 1974, a work of splendor, which can be compared to any great british prog work such as close to the edge or cinema show. A sometimes brazilian beat, genial melody, starting with one of the best piano playings of all rock music, and falling over into what is my favorite keyboard melody ever. There are some non-lyrical vocalizations, but it is to be considered entirely instrumental. The riffs played by the guitar, synthetizers and piano will catch you from beggining to end. O Terço forged a very singular musical identity which sounds very different from european prog, but with the same or even better quality. You should try it now!
