Let's get the grump out of the way - this CD is on less that 40 minutes, which I was quite taken aback by. The first seven tracks are absolutely fantastic. Real in Rio has a fantastic rhythm to it, as does I wanna party. Fly Love is actually quite beautiful. Pretty Bird is absolutely hilarious. Mas Que Nada, Let me take you to Rio (Blu's arrival), Telling the world and Funky Monkey are also brilliant, but I cannot define them. Take me to Rio (Track 9) is just a different version of Blu's arrival. That leaves 5 songs, of which 3 are passable, but the last two tracks spoil it for me, because 1) they are instrumental and 2) they don't really seem to fit in with the rest of the CD. However, the main songs from the film, which I enjoyed are here, so I am quite satisfied.
