I couldn't agree more with Amazon reviewer "Violetta". This is a great album by a very talented man. I found out about this album after seeing the movie that Seu Jorge starred in "Cidade de Deus" ("City of God" - where he played "Mané Galinha" aka "Handsome Ned"). After seeing the movie I bought the soundtrack which he sung the title song to ("Convite Para Vida"). I was so impressed that I thought I would give his album a try and it was well worth it! All his songs are funky and upbeat and very reminiscent of the funk/soul inspired sound of the 70's, with of course a modern twist to it. All the meanwhile he still stays true to his samba roots and is very proud to be Brazilian and showcases this well in his music. The title song "Carolina" is truly addictive! I can't stop playing it.

Screw the Life Aquatic covers! They're wonderful, original, and perfectly fit the movie, but they are only one smidget of Jorge's talent. This man is a force of Portuguese nature--a Brazilian whirlwhind of wicked beats, scrumtrillescent hooks, samba jam out, and set your ass on fire grooves. If your one for lilting acoustic numbers, this is not your album. This one has "Carolina," the song that if you ask any Brazilan--even if they don't know Seu Jorge--they will know "Carolina." This album a a grooe session, a Brazilian beach party that ain't stopping until the sun rises. If you want Bowie, buy the soundtrack. If you want your mind blown and your ass permantly singed from the heat of excessvie latin influenced rump shakin', buy this album.

If you like Seu Jorge's David Bowie covers from the film A Life Aquatic, then I'm sure you'll like this album... Great modern day Brazilian music.

Having only heard Seu from the "Life Aquatic" Soundtrack I was a bit surpised by this album, but after two plays, it grew on me. You might not love it at first, but trust me it WILL grow on you. My favorite song off the album is "Chega No Suingue", though the entire album is perfect, and don't be surprised to find yourself singing along in Portuguese, even if you've never spoken a word of it a day in your life.. Oh and if you get a chance, go see him live, he puts on an amazing live show, trust me!

I received Seu Jorge's debut album Carolina in the mail today and have been jammin' to the toe-tappin' rhythm and Jorge's raw yet sweet voice. I don't understand Portuguese, and you don't have to either in order to appreciate this great, must-have album. After all, it was Brazil's Album of the Year in 2002.

Mangueira is real funky, full of great samba sound. Put this album on with a few friends, mix up some tropical cocktails and savor one of Brazil's finest.

It is truly a unique experience when you simply discover by chance a new artist or album that immediately hits you were you live and instantly fall in love with. Well for me Seu Jorge's debut solo album Carolina was just such an experience. I discovered it by chance simply browsing through the Brazilian CD section in Tower Records in NYC. At first the album's cover art (great) drew me in -- Seu Jorge holding a Siamese cat in a very interesting way! Luckily one could audition this featured display CD with nearby headphones and I gave it a listen. Wow. As the opening guitar and bass notes on the 1st track (Carolina) came on, I was hooked almost instantly on Seu Jorge's deep, sauve, expressive voice. This well produced album has groovy modern yet classically Brazilian melodies, rythyms, and arangements. As I skipped forward to the next track I heard, then the next, I liked each new cut I heard. I kept looking for a "bad" song but no, almost every new track I played sounded good to me which as you know is bloody rare. There are a half a dozen superb songs here. There may be a few cuts on "Carolina" I don't like as much as others but basically the entire album is great! This album quickly became one of my favorite recordings in my entire collection, as well it might become yours. My favorite tracks are: Carolina, Chega No Suinge, Mada, Manguiera, Te Queiria. Seu Jorge is a a fantastic new artist on the Brazilian scene who you owe it to yourself to discover.POSTSCRIPT: I had the chance to see Seu Jorge perform LIVE at a free outdoor concert in NYC's Central Park (Summer '06). Super cool Jorge was simply fantastic and rocked the house. He had a few thousand people on their feet dancing for about 2 hours. Great show!

First off, "Carolina" is a really cool, fresh sound.

If you're like me, you came to find Seu Jorge on the Life Aquatic movie. Life Aquatic featured him in a slower, stripped-down acoustic format.

"Carolina", however, features upbeat, moving, happy songs. Lots of very danceable songs. He has such a great voice that you forget that it's all sung in Portuguese.

If you search around hard enough, you can probably find it somewhere else cheaper though. It's worth the import price though.

It's definitely highly recommended for fans of samba, world music, and just different/unique/cool music in general.
