Jose Cid

José CID is a pretty famous Portuguese musician who made a progressive concept album in 1978 as well as a rare singlewhichare both packaged here together and sounding very good. His style is very similar to the French take on symphonic rockwithlots of string synths, Mellotron and a very simple melodic style. The guitar work is also amazing and works well withthekeyboards. Lyrics are sung in native Portuguese and are quite well done.

"10.000 Anos Depois entre Vénus e Marte", Portuguese for "10,000 Years after between Venus and Mars" is a completeparadoxof the present music composed and played by José Cid. "The concept is that Earth was destroyed except for one manand onewoman who leave on a spaceship. 10000 years later, they return to Earth restored to its primal beauty". This albumisconsidered by many to be one of the Mellotron masterpieces. Fans of spacey French symphonic rock and late '70s ELOYshouldreally like this one. An excellent album. Highly recommended. « hide
