Album Review

Atrás do Porto Tem uma Cidade was the first album that Rita Lee recorded without assistance from the other Os Mutantes members, Arnaldo Baptista and Sergio Dias. On this album she was instead backed up by her new band Tutti-Frutti, with whom she would work for several years to come. Thus, Atrás do Porto Tem uma Cidade represents one of the major breaking points of Rita Lee's career. The typical Os Mutantes sound that was still very noticeable on Lee's first two solo albums was now completely gone, and replaced with a much more straightforward, but still not mainstream, rock sound. Several tracks are very good, and one that really stands out is the beautiful string and piano-based ballad "Menino Bonito." The space-themed "Eclipse do Cometa," "Ando Jururu," and the funky "Círculo Vicioso" are other highlights. Atrás do Porto Tem uma Cidade is an excellent album, although it isn't quite as consistent or spectacular as the rock classics Fruto Proibido and Babilonia, which Rita Lee and Tutti-Frutti would record later. ~ Philip Jandovský, Rovi

Lee formed a band with two other friends and they were quite good at vocals, backing...
