Album Review

Chico Buarque's tenth LP, released in 1976, in its CD reissue. The album has Milton Nascimento delivering the vocals to the important "O Que Será," later recorded by Nascimento and many other interpreters. "Mulheres de Atenas," from Augusto Boal's play Lisa, a Mulher Libertadora, is a delicate canção with a feminine theme. "Olhos Nos Olhos" is a deeply heartfelt song about the end of a love affair. "Vai Trabalhar, Vagabundo," from Hugo Carvana's homonymous film, is a lively samba talking about oppression and massification. "Corrente" is a very interesting semiological experience, where each sequence of verses can be followed with no specific order. "A Noiva da Cidade," a lyrical and tender samba-canção, was taken from Alex Vianni's same-named film.

"Meu Caro Amigo" is another song that became a hit from this album, a beautiful traditional choro with a samba-influenced melody.
