Milton's magic, 24 Feb. 2004
Milton Nascimento is one of the best singer-song writers from Brazil. He started his career during the military dictatorship and his work survived heavy censorship and state violence to become part of history of Brazil. For anyone interested in music, and history, this album is a must. One of the best albuns ever made in Brazil and the world. If you don't know his work, try this and you will soon realize why he has influenced people like Wayne Shorter, Paul Simon, Duran Duran and others. My personal favourite is Clube da Esquina. The music is rich, sad and melodic, and the lirics are a denounciation of suffering, while at the same time giving hope.
