The Voice of Portugal
toze | 09/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once I heard that if a sample of Earth's music was to travel throughout the Universe the songs of Madredeus had to be in it. The purity of Teresa's cristal voice can make of the greatest of the storms a mild spring breeze, can make a rose flourish, can turn a rock into a diamond. The touch of melancholy in their music represent much of the Portuguese way of facing life: full of emotion, always remembering happy days and longing for love. Once the voice of Portugal, Madredeus are becoming the voice of human feelings, of the whole Human Kind: they are heard across the world, from Japan to the U.S.A.. This antology collects the major works of Madredeus, and some of them have become a symbol of much in Portugal. E.g.: "Haja o que Houver" (track 4) (Whatever Is) has become the theme song of Expo '98, when Teresa sang it with Jose Carreras, an unforgetable moment. Tracks such as 5, 7, 10, 12, 15, 17 are a true symbol of Lisbon: the White city with its smell of sea anda flowers."

"Once I read that if a sample of Earth's music was to travel throughout the Universe, the songs of Madredeus had to be in it. Madredeus, already the "voice of Portugal", are becoming one of the voices of the world. The purity of Teresa's cristal voice is able to stop the greatest wind storms, can make a rose flourish, can turn a rock into a diamond. Some of the tracks in this work have become the symbol of much in Portugal: "Haja o que houver" (4) was the theme song of Expo '98; Teresa Salgueiro sang it with Jose Carreras. Tracks number 5, 7, 10, 12, 15, 17 are the essence of Lisbon: a magic white city by the sea, with glinting tile's on the buildings and the smell of flowers everywhere. This antology is a Pearl among Portuguese music. And as some musics show a bit of the tipical portuguese melancholy they are a portrait of this small, but very intense and emotional country."
