The third album released by the Fourth World project of Airto Moreira & Flora Purim includes ten tracks of neo-worldbeat. The productions range all over the map, from dense electronic groove to beautiful acoustic Brazilian pop courtesy of Purim. The balance between organic and electronic works well, with not only Airto on percussion but also Giovanni Hidalgo and several different programmers. Though the range from edgy to pop-laden is quite extreme, Last Journey is a beautiful record throughout.
