Once rooted firmly as a rock group, now 14 Bis have transmuted into a MPB the acronym for Brazilian popular music group, what, by itself isn't a bad thing at all, but they became one of the worst stocks of MPB ever available for purchase.

Once a band comparable to icons of Brazilian progressive rock, now 14 Bis is hardly any better than any of those artists or groups you hate to listen, wherever you live. The explanation for that less than mediocre performance is possibly rooted on three things. First, and by far the most important, the poor choice of songs for a setlist.

Starting right from the opening song, the poor setlist plagues the band's performance like the Black Death plagued Europe. The poor lyrics also takes it toll and, even if the song is listenable by the music itself, the lyrics ruin the experience either by being plain bad or by being placed in a strange or bad way.

Second, even if the song is actually good, the way the band chooses to play it destroy its original environment. That happens, for example, in the third song of this album, entitled Bola de Meia, Bola de Gude, originally appearing in 14 Bis's second album, 14 Bis II.

Third and finally, when the band actually plays a good song, for a change, that particular song makes the bad ones sound so much worse that it becomes nearly impossible to listen to the rest of the album or at least to the next song.

Despite all its downs, I will not be as bold as to say that this album is completely useless. However, they hardly make up for the other 11 songs that are in this live album. My only consolation is that I didn't spent much money buying this. Avoid at all costs. What should have been the 3rd highlight is the lengthiest track, the instrumental named after the band, but, notwithstanding an excellent main melody and acoustic guitar flourishes, it exposes the group's loss of touch with the progressive scene Album) now.

The heavier central part is more clumsy than hard hitting, and doesn't really establish a trademark climax. As both the album and the inspiration wane, the group resorts to a harder rock sound for 14 Bis - A Idade Da Luz (CD first time, and reaches a nadir with "Esquinas De Tantas Ruas".

While on the debut the group could be relied upon to rescue the most syrupy ballad, here there is no salvation, simply subpar rock, nothing more. The closer is better handled and includes imaginative percussion and orchestral outro for a more progressive feel, but seems disjointed like a quilt compiled by members of a feuding family.

I hesitate to submit a lower rating here since in some sense this sophomore release is the more progressive of the first 2, but it also confirms that 14 BIS is and should be a sophisticated pop band. After this inauspicious start, they get down to business, and "Canto de America" establishes their mastery of sweet balladry that might partially explain their success across the demographic spectrum. Most of the material here is as good or better, and apart from high pitched vocal harmonies, includes versatile organ work, much fine acoustic guitar, and even harmonica here and there.

Likewise "Natural" ably proclaims a passion for country and western music while not forsaking the trademark vocal blends. The two closing numbers are equally impressive, the first an organ rich ballad and the second an accordion led lullabye.
