2 stars Sooner or later it was going to happen. After having inserted south-american percussions even on his masterpiece Olias of Sunhillow, and having made this presence more frequent with the time, as the following solo release and ABWH witness, Jon Anderson makes a "Brasilian" album full of samba and world music, even if I think he sings in Spanish instead of Portuguese other than in English.

Is it a bad album? No, it is not. If you enter a shop to buy Vinicious de Moraes and grab this by mistake you can have a nice sursprise, but if you are looking for anything remotely reminding to the Yes yu'll surely be disappointed.

But I'm saying that this is not bad. There are also few symphonic moments here and there, hidden behind the percussions, Jon's voice is good as usual (if you like his falsetto) and when the percussions are more relaxed as in "Floresta" it's really enjoyable.

A good non-prog album from Jon Anderson which could have up to 4 stars in a newage or world-music site. On PA I can only rate it with 2.

Good for fans.
