5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, 10 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Caravana Sereia Bloom (Audio CD)
Well I dont speak Portuguese or Brazilian, but who cares? 3 of the songs do have English lyrics, which fit together with the music in a way that makes it seem to be a new language. I just cannot believe how good this album is....I have been having to resist the urge to play it twice a day! I would say that if you dont find yourself tapping a rhythm along to this at some point you are probably made of stone. Its a pop record, a very, very good pop record, with bespoke instrument licks crafted with the same care as Belle & Sebastian consider their productions. Its a blues album, a le Peter Green....in fact track 5: "Teju Na Estrada" would probably make him jealous! There is reggae...I expect "You Wont Regret It" to become a monster global hit if any record company execs or djs actually pull their fingers out. It is of course Latin, but unlike anything I have ever heard before. The styles switch from synchopated to contra rhythms, from South American soulfull to a giant dreamy lucid green soundscape in the last track "Chegar Em Mim" which literally leaves you floating on air. If you dont buy another album this year, buy this one. Make sure you have her back catalogue in stock Amazon, I will be ordering it as soon as I can! I hope this fantastically talented (and thoughtful) young lady becomes the global superstar she deserves to be (unless she has done already and Im the only one who didnt know). Its nice to know I can still be surprised by real talent...thank you Jools Holland for bringing her and her band to my attention. Truly great!
