2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Desfado (Audio CD)
My collection of about 90 Fado Cds also contains all Ana Moura's previous albums and I greatly cherish them and was looking forward to this new release.
All I can say is that it was a great disappointment. This is not Fado ! It is an ill-fated attempt to 'jazzify' Fado. Ok, every musician will explore new ways in their career; as history shows often with negative results.
Why Ana Moura has turned away from what she is really good at, i.e. modern Fado, and tried to become a jazz singer, although with Fado undertones, is beyond me. Maybe it was the idea of her producers. But, and I hate to say this, there are quite a few GOOD female jazz singers, so why add a mediocre one.
The positive reviews show me that most of the reviewers have not had any, or at least not intensive, contact with Fado and may think that this album is representative of Fado. Well, it is not.
If you want some good modern Fado, then get some albums by Misia, Katia Guerreiro, Christina Branco, Mariza, Camane, Helder Moutinho and others. And of course: Get Ana Moura's previous recordings! Then you will understand what I mean.

The Outsider says:
The music on this cd has nothing to do with evolution and a lot to do with marketing. It's a bland cd made with one eye on the UK market, hence the songs sung in English and the attempt to make it 'poppy'. It's by far the blandest and most tedious cd she's ever made. She should stick to what she does best.

I think it's actually with an eye on the American market but I agree with you. Not a great listen. I can only bear a few tracks on this CD. She supported the Rolling Stones for a bit. Good luck to her but I'll wait for her return to roots album until buying anymore!
