Just Listen...

My boyfriend owns this album and I fell in love with it the minute he popped it into the stereo. Her voice is SO captivating and consistent. Very pleasant to listen to first thing on a sunday morning when your stomping aimlessly around the house. The tracks go from light and boppy, to sultry, to calm and melancholy... she knows her range and doesn't oversing the lyrics. Really beautiful sound.


Luciana, my love….

Best LP by far from the Brazilian songstress. Great vocals & range along with great sonics. I fell in love with this CD upon the first listen. Highly recommended for anyone with an audiophile setup.
