Editorial Reviews

Os Mutantes's second album begins with a fanfare that gives way to a pastoral melody that, in its turn, shifts into a rocking, Beatles-esque groove. All this during the first track, "Dom Quixote," a thinly veiled remembrance of the group's TV debut, which was controversial in a late-'60s Brazil ruled by an oppressive military regime. (The Tropicalia movement the group helped lead was hardly admired by the country's leftists, either.) The music's romanticism is smartly displayed here, too, on "Qualquer Bobagem" and "Fuga No. II," the latter linking Indian-based psychedelia with a glorious Left Banke-style chorus. --Rickey Wright

The first Mutantes album, Os Mutantes, is very good and a good introduction to this trio of goodliness. But if you want to jump in up to your waist and smother yourself with the beautifulness of Mutantes, buy this album.
One of the FINEST albums to be released during the worldwide psychedelic wave, it pounds pretty much every Beatles recording into the ground and then turns around and smashes everyone else. Forget Sgt. Pepper, forget Pet Sounds, forget everything you thought you knew and then put this on and break off the buttons, because if you're like me, you'll never want to stop listening to it.
My god, this is a great album. Start to finish. From the majestic opening music, more like a Roman ceremony than a rock album, to the last triumphant lament of the last song, you will be enthralled and your mind will develop new sections just to take it all in.
Thank goodness these albums are now available with English translations, but to tell the truth, you don't need them. Even if you don't understand what it is they're saying, you know that it is good. And let's be honest, psychedelic music is usually better when you can't understand what they're saying, because they're usually saying something highly laughable. Not here though. Look at the lyrics and understand we are dealing with an intelligence that far surpasses the dada of anything John and Yoko ever cooked up.
So, turn your back on the status quo idea of what is a landmark recording of the psychedelic era. and turn towards the Mutantes. And let them love you.
You know you want it.

I have been all over the world and have taken this album with me everywhere. Never gets old. Always gives you a great rush. The extreme example of good musical entertainment. If you have an open mind, regardless if you understand portuguese or spanish which if you know spanish you can pick up alot. Open minded, music lovers, explorers NEED THIS ALBUM AS FAST AS POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I left my everything is possible CD with my friend Vicente in Sevilla, Spain and couldn't get it back. However, Os Mutantes second album is off the hook. Transcends time and space, if it was a woman I would buy the ring tomorrow. Um, Doish, Traish order it! Dois mil e um is my favorite track on the Cd however Qualquer Bobagem coupled with Noturno Caminhante is a one two closing punch. It'll knock you silly boy! I'm not crazy and I'm not obsessed. These guys are great...

The cover depiction of two matadors and a bride, guitars in hand and howling into microphones is pretty apt for this album.

Within the first few minutes a roaring crowd, angelic voices, funky guitars, flutes, "Bohemian Rhapsody"-style vocals, and swirling psychedelic march music replace eachother one-by-one, in a deliberately disorienting collage of craziness. No, the 1960s greatest nonconformists weren't the dour-yet-stoned Pink Floyd, nor smoky southern pacifist blues-bikers The Allman Brothers, nor the dandy incense-and-peppermints set, nor students of the Maharishi, nor even the art-damaged Velvets. They were from Brazil.

A group that has been long known to the sample-happy Beck and the cosmopolitan funkateer David Byrne, Os Mutantes evaded the radar of most of the English-speaking world. Psychedelic tropicalia in Portuguese, anyone? Byrne corrected this oversight somewhat with the "Everything is Possible!" compilation on his own boutique label, Luaka Bop -- a tasty sampler that draws heavily from the classic lineup of the first three Mutantes albums.

The core trio that would record the most classic and revered albums of the Os Mutantes canon stormed out of the gates with their debut self-titled album, a twisting and invigorating blast of South American funk, distorted guitars and sweet ballads.

The second album, "Mutantes," finds the band stretching out even further, delivering two instant classics: Fuga Nº II and the crawling flanged-and-processed vocals of Dia 36.

What we have here is a Brazilian equivalent of the Beatles: a few exceptionally talented kids who heads get pumped full of American (and British invasion) music as well as European pop, opera and Brazilian bossa nova, samba and folk and who then turn around and let loose with a torrent of wonderfully creative, unique and amazingly lush recordings very much in the American idiom. This is their 2nd album, which contains more original tunes than the first--even if the first thing you hear is from Aida or something. The last cut won song of the year and is quite the magnum opus. In between is "Rita Lee," a tribute to group's girl member (supposedly a descendent of Robert E.), boogie-woogie piano and just maybe Herb Alpert and Booker T. If I had to choose a favorite disc it would be this one, but I would recommend starting with the first, Os Mutantes, which was the one that left me dying in anticpation for the second only to have my expectations exceeded.
Yes, it's mostly in Portuguese, but I've reached that point where you worry that knowing for sure what they are saying might be disappointing.
