Tantra - Mistérios e Maravilhas (Port.prog 1977)

Tantra - Mistérios e Maravilhas

With the Roger Dean-esque art work, you know right away this is a prog album!
'Tantra' were always touted as being Portugals #1 progressive rock band.
With this album, I feel they rival many of the better known bands outside their country!
Their music is very well written, and the players are all exceptional.
The recording and mixing on the original vinyl LP were as good as any at that time, which really helps when your dealing with a symph/prog album, played by musicians of this caliber.
It's obvious these guys were influenced by Yes, Genesis, Gentle Giant ect, but they still manage to keep their sound fresh. Unlike so many other bands of that genre, who were basically clones of the aformentioned bands.
This is an excellent addition to any progressive rock collection!
