4 stars This is heavy, raw and experimental Psychedelic music from 1971. I don't think the record label really knew what to do with these drugged out hippies and their protest songs back in the day, so they really weren't promoted at all. This album has become one of those rare and obscure collector items as a result. They recently released 500 copies of this recording on cd with 8 bonus tracks. I got mine from "Synphonic". Thankyou Greg !

"Turpe Est Sine Crine Caput" is a psychedelic tune with pulsating organ and processed vocals. Fuzz on this one as well (hi Tom). I like the aggressive guitar 2 1/2 minutes in. "Nao Fale Com Paredes" sounds even better with the vocals shouting out the lyrics as the raw guitar rips it up. Lots of organ and drums, the latter is especially prominant 2 1/2 minutes in. "Espelho" is very psychedelic like early FLOYD. Floating organ and the vocals really fit this 60's styled music. "Le Ed Ecalg" is uptempo as organ and guitar tear it up while drums are pounded. Some heaviness late. "Olho Por Olho, Dente Por Dente" is darker with some great sounding organ, guitar and drums. Vocals join in with attitude.They do get theatrical at times. Great guitar after 3 minutes.

"Metro Mental" sounds really good with the intricate guitar and drums. It becomes psychedelic before it kicks in after 2 1/2 minutes. It gets darker after 3 minutes. Vocals before 4 minutes. Love the instrumental section before 5 1/2 minutes. "Teclados" is a short instrumental of piano and organ. I like it. "Salve-Se Quem Puder" opens with a SABBATH vibe, very dark and doom-like.The guitar, organ and vocals would definitely make BLACK SABBATH fans proud. "Animalia" is a short but cool track with different sounds coming and going. Guitar leads the way.

The next 4 bonus tracks don't even sound like the same band. They're a lot lighter and more commercial sounding. Not a big fan of these. Then we get "Curtissima" which is a big improvement. I like the bass and overall sound. This song and the next were bonus tracks on an earlier re-issue of this album. Both are quite good. The last two bonus tracks were put out by the same band in 1972 but they had changed their name by then to the LOVE MACHINE, yikes ! The lyrics are in English for both songs as well.The first song "Cancer Sticks" is an anti-smoking tune that is hilarious with this guy coughing throughout.The second "Waiting For Tomorrow" is one of the best tunes on here. Great guitar and drumming, it's a heavier track that would have fit on the original album quite well. Check out the guitar 2 minutes in !

Recommended to fans of heavy Psychedelic music.
