Album Review

This album is more "Brazilian" than the previous Awa Yiô. The pop elements are still here, but they are more discrete in the all-Brazilian production. There are more sambas in an otherwise peaceful release where Lins spares listeners from his somewhat high-pitched vocals, focusing in the medium region. Lins wrote several string arrangements and invited César Camargo Mariano and other musicians to write others, resulting in a dominating orchestral feel. The sambas are "É de Deus," "Camaleão," and the classic "Desde Que O Samba É Samba" (Caetano Veloso). Ballads predominate: the hit "Lembra de Mim," "Te Amo" (with the excellent singer Vânia Bastos), and "Saudade de Casa" (6/8). "Pra Aalegrar Coração de Moça" is a hybrid of four-to-the-bar swing and 2/4 ballad. Romantic sambas-canção also are represented in "Anjo de Mim," "Noturna," and "Será Possível." The also classic blues "Vinte Anos Blues" had its vitality somewhat diluted by the orchestral subtlety. "Bonito" is a beautiful samba-choro, in this re-recording exploring orchestral sounds in a slower tempo.
