the weakest of his minimalist rock trilogy 12 Jun 2013
By langelo68 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Abraçaço has the beautiful artwork "Zii e Zie" and "Çe" lacked.... gorgeous, refined black and white photographs which leave a lot open to imagination and interpretations (is worth getting the cd even just to enjoy the artful booklet)...
unfortunately, the music is a bit flat compared to his first two efforts on this trilogy. "A bossa nova é foda", "Abraçaço" and "Um comunista" stand out as the best tracks; very creative, generating momentum (um comunista is lyrically perfect!) and having wonderful electric guitar arrangements. his other tracks become simply too minimalistic and simplistic, or even annoying, as is the case of "parabéns", a brainwashing tune of limited quality. on the other hand, one can't really criticize caetano; the guy is more than 70 years old, and remains as innovative as ever. still writing great music and still making shows which don't go for the "usual hits" every brazilian could sing a long. he's been touring the last 5 years with banda Çe, a classic chamber rock band; no frills, raw and austere. could you imagine mccartney or the rolling stones trying something even half as daring?? of course not! but that's caetano, as genuine as ever, the greatest poet/musician in brazilian long pop/mpb/bossa/tropicalismo/rock legacy...

Caetano Veloso. Surprisingly talented singer. 15 Jan 2014

I heard a couple of this singer's songs on U-tube, and I was enamored with the sweet and agonizingly longing voice.
i high recommend this cd to true music lovers.
Great rhythms, great music 4 Nov 2014
By Who, me? - Published on Amazon.com

I heard about this album on National Public Radio a while back and decided to take a chance on it. I am not that familiar with the genre so I can't give fans an in depth review. All I can say is that I love listening to it. I don't speak Portuguese. My little bit of Spanish only helps now and then, and I haven't looked up translations of the lyrics, so my appreciation of this CD is purely musical.

Although I'm not as familiar with Veloso as many who have followed him closely for decades, I understand his position in the musical hierarchy, and find this CD captivating and unassuming. Perhaps not for everyone, but for me it was even better than I'd expected.

Caetano Veloso, almost completing my collection I love his music and I'm going to buy some more of his, thank you.
