CD Reviews

Don Overstreet | North Carolina | 08/24/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I totally agree with John Bach's review (see above). I did fall in love only by hearing a voice. The first song is mesmerizing. You can feel the pathos and longing. It took me a long time to find an English translation to the lyrice for that song. "No matter how, i am hereNo matter how, i'll be waiting for you.Come back with the wind, my loveCome back soon, please.Long ago i forgot why i stood away from you,and every moment seems to be the worst.No matter how, i'll be waiting for you.." (Haja O Que Houver)Wait until you hear her voice. Buy this CD. It will be your favorite.Don"
A blessing for the soul, song as redemption
John Bach | Santa Clarita, CA USA | 08/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album proves one can fall in love by hearing a voice alone. This was the first Madredeus album I encountered and is still my favorite. It usually does one of two things to me whenever I listen to it; either I get weepy because I feel it touches the poignancy of life, or it makes me feel all the joy and beauty there is in the world. Madredeus has truly helped me through a lot of rough emotional times. Thank you."
A pause to catch your breath back

"In my oppinion, this is the less accomplished album of the group's recent history. There were changes with the members ( both accordeonist Gabriel Gomes and keyboard player Rodrigo Leão left to start their own projects ) and the substitutes ( Carlos Maria Trindade on Keyboards and Fernando Júdice on bass guitar ) were not able to maintain the "Madredeus sound" at the same standards, not because of the quality of their playing, but maybe for a certain lack, due to their recent arrival, to get in the spirit of the group's personality. Anyway, it is still a very good album, more introspective and mature than its predecessors maybe, but not certainly one to discard. If you're a newcomer, do not start with these one. If you have the others, this is a variation, but certainly not an unwelcome one."
