One of Milton's Three Absolute Gems
Juan Mobili | Valley Cottage, NY USA | 11/16/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Along with Minas and the earlier Clube Da Esquina, Geraes represents the work of an amazing artist at the peak of his inspiration and full interpretive powers. This is South America at its artful best, a work of heart and deep intelligence, intellectually and emotionally.
This is Milton's homage to his dearest land, his native Minas Geraes -which gave titles to this and its equally astonishing counterpart, MInas- and a return to his roots. In this album the great sweeping ballads (Lua Girou, and O Que Sera sung with its talented author Chico Buarque) stand side by side with more traditional rhythms (like Circo Maribondo and Calix Bento). And if this was not beautiful enough, it includes a gorgeous rendition of Violeta Parra's Volver A Los 17 along with Mercedes Sosa, another godly voice from South America.
This is, as I said, an absolute gem, timeless, full of heart and exquisite nuances. Undoubtedly a work of maturity and joy, from a man who found his voice so early in his career, and who has been delighting us with proof of it ever since."
Please Amazon, get this CD for me!!!!

"I got the cassette that was bought in Brazil years ago, and it wore off after so much listening. Now it is YEARS that I am looking for the CD. I was so very happy to see it in the Amazon site but after a long wait, we were sent an email saying it was unavailable. Well, I have to say that more than half of the items in my wish list are unavailable now, and it makes no sense. This CD can result in goosebumps. The lighthearted cord instruments in the song Calix Bento stretch my emotional range like few songs do. The version of "Volver a los 17" (getting back to be 17 years old, so to speak) composed by the remarkable chilean author Violeta Parra, is sung with the most fragile sensibility by Milton and the argentinian singer Mercedes Sosa. Then Chico Buarque's "Oh que sera" is one of the most moving versions of the song, equaled only by the deep voice of brasilian singer Simone for the movie "Donha Flor". 5 stars? The whole sky..."
Complex and rewarding

"I did not like it very much to begin with. In fact I (almost) never liked any of Milton Nascimento's songs to begin with. But slowly their complex beautiy combined with Nascimento's unique voice dawns on me. "Geraes" is my favorite album. An advise: listen to it again and again. It could be while you drive your car."
