It's taken me a while to fully appreciate this album. At first I found it slightly dull melodically, with too few ballads of the same emotive power of her much-loved 'O gente da minha terra'. But it's grown on me, and those songs that have the sad beauty typical of fado music have thoroughly eclipsed the few that don't do it for me. Ten successful tracks out of 14 is pretty good value for money, I reckon.

Technically, it's excellent: Mariza's voice is as pitch-perfect, controlled and expressive as ever, the musicianship and production are superb, and it's more diverse than her previous albums, with some laidback trumpet and piano, occasional flamenco influence, and a Cape Verde-style song (featuring Tito Paris, who, although a man, sounds uncannily like his compatriot Cesaria Evora, but with an attractive rasp). This diversity has cleverly avoided the danger of 'sameyness' inherent in music that conforms to a certain style, but isn't extreme enough to lose her fan base. It's a classy album, and a cut above the rest.

What a voice. Agile and full of angst. The entire CD is wonderfully cathartic. At the same time, uplifting. If you buy this one and have a listen, I guarantee you'll be back to buy her back catalogue. Fado is Portugals best kept musical secret and has a deserved place in the musical panoply. Go on, give it a go - prefereably with a nice strong drink of your choice in hand and in front of an open fire with your partner....;-)

More beautiful Fado music by the talented Portuguese singer. This is up there with the best of her other albums and is highly recommended. Gets you in the traditional Portuguese state of mind and reminds me of sitting in an old restaurant abroad soaking up the native culture.

Let me begin by saying, I don't like Mariza's version of "Alfama". As a friend of Amalia Rodrigues and Maria da Fé, I don't like to hear anyone sing Alfama. That said, this new album by Mariza is a fado lover's dream.
Every syllable deliciously prounounced. I first heard "Ja me deixou" last year at Maria's place Senhor Vinho performed by Beatriz de Conceicao, one of the finest fadistas to draw breath, and Mariza equals her. "As guitarras" truly brings a lump to the throat, and "Pequenhas verdade" adds
a new meaning to class. I could go on and on, folks....
JUST BUY THE ALBUM!!!!

I was so impressed the first time I listened to this very talented lady, I jumped straight on the net and ordered it from Amazon. She has such a lyrical voice and full of passion. Now the next step is to follow the lyrics and understand what she is singing about. But then again, who cares. The lovely voice says it all!
