Apocalypse — Aurora do Sonhos
(Musea FGBG4171.AR, 1996, CD)

by Henry Schneider, Published 2017-01-05

Aurora do Sonhos Cover art

Aurora dos Sonhos is the second release in just a little over a year by this Brazilian neo-progressive quartet of bass, guitars, synths, and percussion. This exotic and colorful band weaves an intricate tapestry of symphonic and acoustic music paying homage along the way to Genesis and the Italian progressives à la Le Orme. However, not being able to read and understand Portuguese, I can only sit back and let the music weave its magic around me. The accompanying artwork is a bit overdone, however, and could give you the impression that this is one of Musea’s reissues. Do not be mistaken, Aurora dos Sonhos is from 1996 and a release not to be missed!
