Simple IS best
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I heard this album first on Tom Schnabel's Cafe L.A. on KCRW in L.A., and had to track it down. Although I wish I could come up with more orginal words than "haunting" and "evocative," this album of traditional folksongs is just that. Some of the songs are familiar, and some aren't. Zizi's voice is beautiful in its understatment, which isn't the backhanded compliment it might sound like. The current trend of psychobabble talks about simplifying your life and getting back to basics: this album shows that they might, in fact, be on to something. I wish I could tell you what I gleaned from the liner notes (which includes all the lyrics), but alas it's an import and I don't speak Italian."
Italian music/brazilian style

(4 out of 5 stars)

"As an Italian, I would like to clarify that the majority of songs on this album are NOT traditional folk songs -- as one of the earlier comments suggests. For the most part, these are reinterpretations of successful ballads from a golden age in Italian pop music: the 1960s. However, some of them are much more recent and include an Eros Ramazzotti song which was written in honor of his daughter. In any case, the music is simple, dignified and evocative. Possi is paying tribute to her Italian roots by singing this Italian songbook: she is proud of her ancestry and proud too of her Brazilian musical world: many of the songs are slightly redefined by the added touch of a bossa nova rhythm or spare guitar work typical more of Gilberto than of Italian arrangements. The album is a continuation of the work she inaugurated with Per Amore (a song originally performed by Andrea Bocelli). That album seemed a bit more consistent...but they are both interesting, both wonderful. And perfect for a romantic evening of nostalgia and remembering."
Canciones cantadas con pasión

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Una vez más Zizi Possi demuestra por qué es una de las mejores cantantes de Brasil; aunque en este caso lo haga cantando canciones italianas -y mas aún- del repertorio de música Napolitana. Hay que destacar "L'Aurora", "Passione" o "Io che amo solo te", solo por citar algunas. Lo mejor es sentarse comodamente, escuchar un gran disco y, especialmente, a una gran intérprete."
