Editorial Reviews

Despite a name strongly relying on vintage PINK FLOYD, ECLIPSE owes a lot to another British dinosaur of the Seventies-era: YES. This new Brazilian band mixes the so-called South-American symphonism with a personal vision, filled with enthusiasm, of the Anglo-Saxon Progressive rock. The fluid guitar soli played by Aloisio CAMPELO Jr strongly remind Steve HOWE (Jazz influenced), and keyboardist-bassist Paulo TORRES displays melodic lines Chris SQUIRE would have been proud of. The whole is performed with an excellent quality. With such an introduction, one could fear "Jumping From Springboards" (2003) will be a copy of "Fragile" or "Close To The Edge". No way ! The four musicians know how to go beyond their influences: some sequences could evoke as well CAMEL, HATFIELD AND THE NORTH (Guitar player Patricia DESCHAMPS’ singing is sometimes close to Amanda PARSONS’), Mike OLDFIELD, VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR… And PINK FLOYD ! To conclude, let’s say that ECLIPSE has the true ability to become the new leader of the Brazilian Progressive rock scene. Don’t miss it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Prog Music Making a Comeback August 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
As people get sick and tired of three-chord songs, this masterful album propels to the forefront of rock'n'prog fans an amazing array of styles and texture. Aloisio Campelo's MIDI guitar solos, fuzzy here, with a Bandoneon twist there and what not, puts him already on the short list of the top axe-grinders - no pun intended - in his native Brazil. The influences are all there, lots of Genesis, Marillion, Fish, and also a lot of nuanced Bossa vocalise by Patricia entertwined with hollow-body guitar solos. I urge every reader of this review to immediately pruchase this CD. It will be on your car tray for a long, long time.....

5.0 out of 5 stars 2003's Best Buy November 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Brazilian people would hardly know that there are such good Prog Bands from there, like Eclipse.
The melodies are wonderful, the voices match the music style in a perfect way and, combined to the complex drum grooves and bass lines, it takes you into a mental trip.
2003's best buy, in my opinion.
