3 stars This is definitely more "Rock oriented" then the followup "Criaturas De Noite" which I like a lot more. Still this is a good album with some great moments.

"Deus" is uptempo with distorted guitar leading the way early. Vocals and organ come in before a minute as it settles. It picks up again when the vocals stop and the guitar returns, then the organ takes over. "Voce Ai" becomes uptempo with vocals and percussion, the latter brings a Samba flavour to the mix. Sax comes in late. "Estrada Vazia" is a ballad with acoustic guitar and some harmonies. "Lagoa Das Lontras" has a heavier sound with distorted guitar, drums and vocals. "Rock Do Elvis" is rockabilly with Elvis-like vocals. Yikes !

"Amanhecer Total" is the 19 minute closer. The band gets help on synths and organ from former MODULO 1000 member Luiz Paulo Simas. This really feel like they've joined different tracks together to make one. It has it's good and not so good moments in my opinion. It opens with a mellow mood and guest female vocals. Soft male vocals come in around 2 minutes. A change after 8 minutes as the guitar and drums take over. Vocals are back before 10 minutes. Lots of guitar and organ after 14 minutes. It changes before 15 minutes as piano takes over then vocals and drums join in.

This isn't as good as I had hoped but please check out the follow-up album "Criaturas Da Noite".
