Sweet miracle of life, Angra is not dead! Exit Andre Matos , Ricardo Confessori and Luis Mariutti - who are all in the new Matos band called Shaman - and welcome Eduardo Falaschi , Aquiles Priester and Felipe Andreoli ! With this new line-up, the two guitar players/music writers Kiko Loureiro and Rafael Bittencourt have issued a new opus.

Rating: 8 IMO the second best album by Angra. Keeping in mind how good Angra is, it means that this seriously kicks ass.

Agreed. For me, this is the second best, after "Angels Cry". But, Felipe Andreoli here? On This Album? Now this is the biggest surprise metal has ever made to me. Who knew an dumb like Andreoli could've played on angra? (Brazilians should know what I am talking about!)

Sorry! I forgot you!! Anyway, he's a comedian, and one of the best. I never though that an clown guy like him would play so good.

Dude, WTF are you talking about??
It's NOT the same Felipe Andreoli.
The name is just a coincidence.

Rating: 8 A good example of how crucial line-up shifts do not affect a band's legacy in any way. This album is just excellent.
