4.0 out of 5 stars A great party record 14 Aug 2007
By IWFIcon VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Whilst constantly lumped in with Cansei De Ser Sexy, Bonde Do Rolé are going to struggle to match the worldwide success that their fellow Brazillians have acquired.

For a start, whilst the sound is similar, on the surface at least, With Lasers lacks the out and out pop genius of, say, Let's Make Love And Listen To Death From Above, and its this lack of a killer tune that will preclude this from making the kind of splash that CSS did.

Still, that is not to say that this is entirely without merits. Those that do listen to it will immediately find this a likeable and rowdy experience, like all good party's should be.

Whether its the kazoo (and indeed the Hollaback Girl-esque drum beat) that accompanies Geremia, the Fannypack style minimalism of Solta O Frango or the 80's Hair metal intro to Bondallica you'll be having fun, even if it's difficult to ever be fully aware of what exactly is going on. Indeed, you don't need to be fluent in Portugese to know what territory we're delving into here and, if I'm being honest, that's half the fun.

Of course you might well decide that one Synth-heavy Brazillian disco pop troupe is enough for your life, but if you did you might be missing out on something quite special indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Those lasers are making their mark 8 Jun 2007
By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Anyone thinking that all Brazilians do is party , apart from play foot ball that is , is unlikely to have their opinion changed by With Lasers. Hot on the pirouetting heels of CCS come Brazilian band Bonde Do Role who have produced thirteen tracks that cover thirty minutes , every single second of which is rambunctious party music . By the way that's party music in the wilful irresistible delight of sheer inventive fun sense rather than some horrific cheesy meticulously contrived sense.

The combination of effervescent shouty vocalist Marina ( A Latina tuneful Davina McCall with non of her irritating peccadilloes) and DJ/producers Gorky and Pedro has produced a version of Baile Funk-the music mash up associated with Brazilian ghetto's that also cannily jemmy's some more Western musical genres into the mix.

So gleefully screwball heavy metal riffs or funked up grunge licks carouse over the top of bottom heavy bass beats and programmed drum beats produced on something so cheap it might run on steam. There are cartoonish bursts of cheesy keyboards , random blasts of noise from sci-fi ray guns and silly vocoded vocal effects . The album title is surely ironic , a comment on the music's attempt to grasp at some modernistic nirvana via the discounted slightly retro instrumentation. Or maybe they just like lasers?

What can come under no scrutiny what so ever is that some of the songs on With Lasers are so infectious they would distract Bush and Putin from discussing missile sites and get them jigging around like Beyonce standing on a nest of fire ants which is surely a good thing. "Divine Gosa" is so funky I dismantled my chair prancing around to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. 6 Nov 2007
By Stephen N. Porter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Track 8. Marina Gasolina. THE Christmas Party song for 2007.
Also used effectively in a t.v underwear campaign down here in Australia. If you want to see your wife run around the room acting mental in her undies then buy this now. Will buy the album based entirely on the strength of this track. Infectious and stupid fun.
5.0 out of 5 stars Infectious dance beats...this album will definitely cheer you up 11 Jan 2008
By J. Minty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was introduced to this group by a friend. This album is infectious and we've listened to it uncountable times. The dance beat is amazing and you'll find it hard not to start moving around.

I recommend this album to anyone who likes strong beats and likes to dance every once in a while. A definite favorite!
