Album Review

The third of the +2 albums showcases Alexandre Kassin backed by Moreno Veloso and Domenico Lancelotti. He turns in an intimate, gently funky set that brings together samba, bossa nova, and electronic music, reminiscent at times of the High Llamas in the sweep of the melodies (most apparent on "Lakeline," although it's a fairly pervasive influence). But perhaps that's not too surprising, as that band's Sean O'Hagan is involved in the record, along with Tortoise's John McEntire. Throughout, it's an eminently accessible album, with touches of tropicalia psychedelia in tracks like "Mensagem" and the title cut. It's a beautiful, low-key record, redolent of Rio beaches at night, but Kassin has the knack of writing very memorable melodies. You might not understand the words, but they don't matter — the tunes simply float along in your brain, backed by subtle percussion. For all intents and purposes, this is a rock album with a strong Brazilian accent, speaking an international language with a heavy regional dialect. Overall, this might be the most satisfying of the trio's three albums, certainly the fullest sounding and most accomplished.

Customer Reviews

The best of the three!

the third and finally installment of the +2 trilogy doesn't disappoint. while Kassin's vocal ability may not be as strong as Moreno's and he may be lacking the craziness of Domenico he takes his turn in front to produce the most creative of the +2 albums. From his clever lyrics to his sound that ranges from bossa nova to MPB to indie rock this album is great and stays fresh everytime you play it!


i am a huge fan of moreno, domenico, and kassin and this definitely doesn't disappoint. i bought this album in japan almost two years ago so i'm looking forward to listening to the last three tracks in the US version that weren't included in the Japanese version. i loooooove their music!!!

I love this trio

All three (Alexandre Kassin, Domenico Lancellotti and Moreno Veloso) in the +2 trio are exceptional. Kassin's offering here is like the jewel on the crown. I really hope these guys continue their collaboration.


Genre: Brazilian

Years Active: '00s

Alexandre Kassin, Moreno Veloso, and Domenico Lancelotti form a musical trio, which might very well have been called a group, if it weren't for the fact that they, in rather unorthodox fashion, focus on each individual group member instead of the group as a unit. Thus, at the release of the trio's first CD in 2001, with Moreno Veloso as singer, they called themselves Moreno+2. In 2003, it was Domenico's turn to stand in the limelight, and the trio called itself Domenico+2. Subsequently, with their...
