A Divina Comedia Ou Ando Meio Desligado (180 gram)
Last copy, long out-of-print warehouse "find":
"...the third album by the Brazilian tropicalia/Psychedelic rock band Os Mutantes. The title in English means: The Divine Comedy or I Walk a bit Disconnected. "I walk a bit disconnected" in this sense means "I feel a little spaced out." The second track features the band imitating California accents. The album as a whole is characterized by a mix of psychedelic and religious imagery, and has been acclaimed by critics such as AllMusic and has landed on Rolling Stone Brazil's list of the best Brazilian albums.
It's also the first album by the band to break away from the Tropicalia aesthetic, and move towards more of a pure rock sound. Except for a tongue-in-cheek version of the ballad "Chão de Estrelas", the record shows little Brazilian music influence. This shift in direction is speculated to be because their helpers and influences, Tropicália stars Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil were exiled by the Brazilian military dictatorship. The album cover reflects a similar illustration by Gustav Doré from Dante's Divine Comedy.
