AllMusic Review by

This CD is almost a reissue of their first work (available in LP format only, titled Apocalypse). The difference is that one track was completely re-recorded ("Sozinho, Perdido Dentro de Mim") and the other six tracks were remastered and added to this CD. Three bonus tracks recorded in 1992-1993 were also added. Again, the music is basically in the neo-progressive style, but now with more of a vocal presence from Chico Casara and harmonies from the other bandmembers. A highlight is the constant duel of keyboards and drums. You can note some similarities to IQ and Pendragon, and also a Pink Floyd influence on the track "Levando a Vida," but the album is original enough. It is also important to mention the artwork of the booklet, which carries listeners on a journey to a land of elves and fairy tales. Again, all the lyrics are in Portuguese.
