Marisa fan:"Just plain awful!"
(1 out of 5 stars)
"I am one of Marisa's biggest fans-I absolutely love all of her other CDs, but I feel I have the duty to warn any unsuspecting Marisa fans that this album is just plain awful. Even on the first listening of this CD its clear that Marisa is yet to find her voice or her sound. At times on the album she sounds like a female impersonating Louis Armstrong. And the songs in english? Someone should've taught her the songs phonetically-they are so bad, they're humorous!!! This album doesn't even have one song that would merit its purchase. Go buy Rosa e carvao instead!!!"
A Fine First Effort, But....

"This album of Marisa's is fine, but it is clear she is trying to work out her musical style. She swings wildly between Mo-town and classic Bossa Nova. Unless you are interested in owning all of MM's albums, I recommend buying any of her other albums first."
Wow, this is Great !

"Marisa Monte's standout disc. Every track is great. She does some great Brazilian MPB covers like "Ela so Quer" and "Chocolate", and some new ones as well. Several of the oldies have the distinct Brazilian characteristic of double-entendre lyrics which could slip by the old military censors. "Comida" is just a powerful song, great lyrics. Marisa's voice is just amazing."
