Simply stunning - one of the 10 best CD's I've ever heard
D. Freed II | Dallas, Texas | 03/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Every once in a while something comes out of the clear blue, bowls you over with its beauty and STAYS THERE for the next 20 years. There are very few CD's or records(in fact, less than 20)in my collection of 4,000 that I can put on and listen to straight through to the end, without any editing, deletions, etc. This is one of those rare birds. If you're falling in love - or just thinking about it - get this baby and it will restore your faith, amplify your experience, or provide a marker so powerful that you'll never forget. Even if you don't speak Portuguese, the lyrics and melodies are so evocative that you'll be surprised how accurate your guess as to their meaning was when you have a Brazilian friend translate them for you. And the rest of the world agrees: Milton Nascimento has been the top-selling musical artist world-wide for more than 14 years. There's a reason."
I was surprised by the beauty of this CD

"I must confess I'm not a big Nascimento's fan! However, the immense power, and in contrast, the incredible smoothness of his voice have always impressed me. When I bought this CD as a gift for a friend I wasn't expecting so much! Then, when I had the opportunity to listen to it I got absolutely surprised. All songs bring a rare balance and unique music! A very consistent work where Nascimento uses all resources of his beautiful voice! The strength, beauty and gentleness combined in musics as "Noites do Sertao", "Lagrima do Sul" and "Vidro e Corte" are absolutely astonishing. And also, the whole CD has a very clear Brazilian soul. Typical, smooth, impressive. The lyrics are something else and is worth it to find some one who can translate them, in case you don't understand portuguese. I'm very pleased with the album and really recommend."
