From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars 01. Seres Imaginários Medieval feel for the beginning, with mandolins and flutes, soon everything change, they come in with the

instruments that characterize the 'real' Rock Rock and roll. And next the vocal of Paul Rossglow enters on the stage singing in abstract way like the name of the music suggests. Little more than 2 minutes, a pause and the best interlude of keyboards of João Victor. A great track of introduction.

02. Saga Dense, this is the beginning of the second track of the disc, near to 30 seconds a quick, urgent riff and in the

bottom the violin of Sidarta Guimarães. The guitar of Marcelo Leitão is a constant presence in the whole track, always doing melodic 'beds'. Somewhat before

the 3rd minute of the music is the time of Marcos Pessoa to fit in a small solo of bass, I always thought that the

Progressive Rock is better with the most 'sharp' and 'metal' bass, in this case the use of the most traditional

sounds is obvious in case of the bass. Vocal come to the front, and the track ends aggressive.

03. O Som Do Silêncio/A Porta Beautiful acoustic introduction with guitar, flute and violin. In the second part the music is more symphonic. In the 2 minutes and a half the vocal sound prophetic and strong.

Like a Gregorian chant. To 4 minutes and a half the best solo of synthesizer of Edson Filho, which finishes when if

there is making part of the verse.

04. Búfalos Audazes The guitar steel of Álvaro Luis in the beginning reminded of me a little David Gilmour and his phase in The Division

Bell. After the long introduction the melody that accompanies the vocal is calm and have taken more pop way, but in the

sense 'I already heard this melody before', a beautiful melody. It is worthwhile to pay bigger attention to the lyrics of the song. Very good by the way.

05. Lamento Das Horas/O Tempo The side folk of the band works very well in this type of introduction, piano, flute and violin in communion. After the short passage is the moment of the guitar to enter in scene, next to the drums of Marcos Bye Bye, and in

this case, the vocal from Claudy Guedes reminds me The Great Gig In The Sky. The keyboards in the bottom it has a funeral tone, the vocal line and the melody that accompanies it only prove

that. When the second vocal part was thru it's graceful, almost like a shy Wild West, soon to flow into bells.

06. Ainda Que Tarde Ainda Que Tarde comes in the glue of Lamento Das Horas/O Tempo and again it must still be heard by special attention

for the lyrics, a high point of the band, good letters, thing that not always easy of heard in these days, even

among the Progressive Rock.

07. Trem Do Futuro The track that gives name to the band, bring train sounds in the beginning and it has been sticking heavier, it's

like Jethro Tull, because of a track that divides Rock/Blues with flutes, interesting. To 2 minutes a solo of violin and soon an interesting solo of keyboard of Edson Filho.

08. Olho Do Tempo/Onda Brava/Tempo Nu Complex and unusual the beginning of the 8th track of the album, I say unusually because up to the moment the disc

presented a Progressive Rock Sinphonic/Folk with great competence, in this beginning an intricate line with stops

was very quite placed. I do not think that the keyboard to the bottom goes together with the remainder of the music,

soon the insignia of piano were very quite chosen. There has been a thing that does not please me in the newest

Progressive Rock is the use of insignia of keyboards of the beginning of the 90 years, a somewhat false sound and

without life. In the 'chorus' of the music the flute of Ulisses Germano go flat crazy and the drums has the best sentences. In the second part Marcelo M. Suckling pig is used of vocal effects to narrate an evocative subject so that in the

sequence the final part of the song is taken by guitar, mandolin, violin and flute. Beautiful passage.

09. Na Trilha Do Diabo A blues! I thought the insignia and the way interesting with which Diogo Araújo it inserted his concertina in this

track. I do not know well what to say about the music in you, in spite of liking of blues I think that the track is not

fitted in the general context of the disc.

10. O Homem Antigo The track that ends the disc is quicker, more straight, in spite of the flutes, again I think that it clashes a

little witthath the focus of the album, but it has good moments.

In the general one great album, with the exception of two final musics, which in my opinion run away a little with the concept of the disc, but is an excellent release in our arid and thirsty lands in Brazil.
