For fans of the prog rock music of the good old days like me, the 70’s, “Terra” is an excellent album. It represents, fortunately, the return of this great Portuguese prog band to their original roots. Manuel Cardoso decided to revive the musical concept of Tantra even picked up the main motif of their debut album, “À Beira Do Fim” (“Edge Of Oblivion”). I’m amazed by the tension, emotion and passion of “Terra”. They’re playing a kind of a symphonic prog rock fusion with a warm Latin touch, mainly due to the Portuguese vocals. “Terra” has a fantastic sound. This music is for the adventurous prog fans that aren’t afraid to try music outside of the traditional Anglo- Saxon prog music with its lyrics in English. Of course this album has a natural target audience amongst Portuguese/Brazilian progsters. The lyrics would help to paint the full picture of “Terra”. “Terra” is an album that needs some patience to be fully appreciated.
