Album Review

The group's previous album, Instinto Coletivo, had an enormous commercial success and sold platinum, and O Rappa's O Silêncio Q Precede O Esporro continues the chosen path of mixing rock, funk, reggae, rap, and some traditional Brazilian rhythms. The outstanding track of this album is without doubt the intensive and irresistible "Reza Vela." The only really weak track is the version of Chico Buarque's early-'70s classic "Deus Lhe Pague," which frankly doesn't come off well at all in O Rappa's modern pop format. The album is heavy on dub, electronic beats, scratches, massive basslines, and electric guitars, accentuating the trademark groove that has always been O Rappa's claim to fame. The folksy and popular samba artist Zeca Pagodinho appears on "Maneiras," which, as one might then expect, has an evident samba beat. The many "Intros" preceding the songs — most of them using the voice of Waly Salomão — are a somewhat peculiar feature of the album. ~ Philip Jandovský, Rovi
