CD Reviews

Catchy pop-reggae, Brazilian style
Blythe | California | 04/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These catchy tunes will have you tapping your toes and humming along even if you don't understand Portuguese. Most are in a light reggae-pop style, with occasional samples in English (such as "Downtown", a tribute to Jamaican reggae origins). These CDs can also be bought separately - I think the "Hits" volume is better than "Dubs" but both are good. Some are upbeat, some are thoughtful - "Sabado Noite" is rather reminiscent of some Moxy Fruvous songs. If you like UB40 and similar groups you will probably enjoy these."

"This CD is proof positive that the rich blend of styles brewing in Brazil can satisfy even the most jaded world music listener. These cats provide thoughtful lyrics, authentic beats, and varied emotions. Twist it with a splashy, southern hemisphere vibe and... POW!... !! Gotta play it again!"
