5.0 out of 5 stars A remix CD like no other January 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I had never heard of Madredeus before stumbling upon this album of Electronica remixes. While expecting the usual Hard Dance-floor Beat remixes, I was stunned to hear down-tempo, chilled-out, electronic beats by some of my favorite musicians (Dusted, Craig Armstrong, Alpha). The others seemed to work in the same vein, which is fine by me. If you like laid-back, chilled out or trip-hop music with ethereal vocals, this CD is hard to beat. Rarely do I find A CD that I am totally happy with, but this is a keeper and a solid alternative to the usual run of the mill "Chillout" compilation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful February 24, 2004
By S
Format:Audio CD
Maybe this isn't representative of Madredeus' work, but it is a beautiful album. The vocals are still as stunning with an interesting mix of electronic sounds. I began to like Madredeus' other albums after hearing this one because no amount of remixing can take away the beautiful, haunting quality of many of their songs, and this album only seems to enhance them.

5.0 out of 5 stars news from portugal November 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I've always loved Madredeus and electronic music. Having both things in a same album was an interesting issue. I don't regret to have bought this Electronico. Madredeus selected the elite of electronic music artists (Buscemi, Alpha, Télépopmusik, Moana Maru...) to remix some of their beautiful songs.

If you expect to listen to added samplers and dance tracks you'll be disappointed. All groups have reinterpreted (and even charmingly dissected) each song to create this compilation. Minimal electronica is excellently mixed with Teresa Salgueiro ("the singer with the amber voice") performances and Madredeus' melancholic (and irremediable marine) atmospheres.

Madredeus' Electronico is simply a must.

4.0 out of 5 stars Less acoustics yet still perfect ! September 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
After a couple of years listening to the harmonious mixing between "fado", Classics and the divine voice of diva Teresa Salgueiro you may not stand the impact of a new component: the electronic sound! You may listen to the band's old great hits included in this edition with a little sensation of "Madredeus?? No way..." But hold your horses because you'll agree after a couple of listens that harmony and feeling are still there, I mean, it's still Madredeus.
Well, I didn't give 5 stars just because despite the tremendous quality of this work I want them back to the old style. You know, too many years listening to the old sound recipe...

4.0 out of 5 stars Remix album worth listening July 22, 2002
By Sandy
Format:Audio CD
I was doubtful about this remix album. Madredeus music is so specific that I was scared an electronic treatment would destroy its equilibrium and kill Theresa's voice. I was wrong, those remixes actually work out well. When reading the liner notes, comments from each remixers about Madredeus music and their remix, I was relieved to see they all worked with respect to the originals. Theresa's breathy voice remains the center of attention. The new production adds even some melancholy to the tracks, and might attract new listeners to the originals.
"Haja o que houver" 'Lux mix' accentuates the melancholy and longing of the original with a floating and aerial electronic loops background. "Vem" gets a majestic string mix by Alpha. The strings and percussion climb hand in hand in intensity and passion with the vocals. Sunday Best version of "Ecos na catedral" is ethereal and contemplative. Banzai Republic washes out the vocals in a musical sea wave turning "O mar" into a haunting mermaid song. Bushemi proves with the "O Paraiso" 'afro mix' that Madredeus music can contain beats without turning into a dance track. Theresa's voice seems to float above the light orchestration.
"O sonho" keeps the trademark guitar sound in Ralf Myerz and Jack Herren Band version, but they push the vocals in the background to add to the atmospheric, dreamy feeling. Afterlife remix of "A lira" keeps the trademark cords and brings pulse to the song with a conga beat while the voice remains pure. Dusted keeps most the original elements of "Andorinha da primavera" and throws some quiet beats and spacy electronic loops in. The song becomes a waltzing lullaby.
Telepopmusic incorporate perfectly Madredeus natural elegance into their electronic musical world. Their remix of "Oxala" is elegant, twisted and nonchalant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Madredeus Electronico is ENCHANTING! June 15, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album with it's beautifully mysterious sound was well worth the $. The sound is very heartfelt and emotional. I felt pulled in by teresa's new enhanced sound. If you like ambient, chillout, or groups like balligomingo,conjure one,delerium,deep forest,enigma,telepopmusik then definitely pick this one up. It may not be as good as these well known artists but comes pretty damn close. I'm grateful I discovered this album and hope madredeus comes out with another electronic/ambient album cause I really dont care for the folk sound at all.
