Biography

When she was 19 years old, after a contact with the world of opera in Italy, she gave up the lyric song and soon became the sensation in the Brazilian musical scene. Still at the age of 19 years old, her professional debut show in a jazz bar was received enthusiastically by the critic and audience, and few months later she started crowding big theaters in Brazil, with no albums recorded, ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This is Marisa Monte's first CD since 2002, and it's also the companion release to her samba-centered Universo Au Meu Redor recording. On this project, Monte reunites with her Tribalistas partners, Carlinhos Brown and Arnaldo Antunes, along with special guests including cellist Jaques Morelenbaum and pianist Joao Donato. The vibe is what you would expect from Monte: saudade-soaked lyrics with dreamy, layered synth and electric keyboards draped over Brazilian percussion and guitars. Having a baby has mellowed her out, as evidenced by the laid-back lilt on "A Prineira Pedra" and "Pra Ser Sincero" and the breezy backbeats of "Levante." "O Rio" was co-written by Seu Jorge, and the title track is what you're probably going to hear on your iPod. Clearly, there are a lot of Brazilian singers out there, but Monte's musical and emotional growth make her stand out. --Eugene Holley, Jr.

Customer Reviews

Don't worry too much... A great album , as good as any of her others IMO.
Clint Alloy
Marisa Monte has an amazing voice, and demonstrates great musicianship on her album, Infinito Particular.
MoGyver Holmes
Piracy is a problem, but not adapting to the changes of the market is worse.

For Marisa fans, this is an absolutely beautiful album. I've listened to it many times weekly since I purchased it. I highly recommend it, WITH reservations. I went through serious torture just getting it into mp3 format to play on my iPod. If anyone would like instructions on how to circumvent this lame copy protection scheme in order to play this music on a different medium-within the scope of the license you purchase with the music-please email me and I'll be glad to share how to do it. This is a classic example of publishing companies gone too far. If Marisa's next album comes out with EMI copy protection, I will be forced to stop recommending her music.

Marisa Monte has done it again with an album where all the songs are soft, clear and relaxing.

If you are into brazilian contemporary, you cannot miss Marisa Monte. As a raod warrior I carry her in my pack of cds to help me relax, order my thoughts and let go.

I would add that I did expect a bit more variation, for her voice is well adapted to every style she wishes to explore. Yet this album is quite the same in all its tone (which is not bad, but if you are new to MM better start with roses and carbon).

Marisa Monte's voice is as gorgeous as a woman's voice can ever hope to be and the songs in this album are beautiful. You will want to take this music everywhere with you, in your CD player and in your personal digital player.

However, EMI has made sure that it is not easy for you to use iTunes to rip the music and create AAC files for your iPod. The CD carries a Windows program to protect the music content and to restrict the ways in which you are allowed to use the content that you have paid for. Pop it in to your computer's CD drive on a Windows machine and the Autorun feature takes control. It will allow you to burn identical copies for back up (carrying the nasty program with them) or to generate WMA files at 128 kpbs encoding. EMI has made these decisions for you and only with some pain you can bypass them. Their website states that it's Apple who is at fault for not licensing their DRM to third parties. This makes this CD unusable in iTunes. This thin excuse collapses when you consider that even using Windows Media you cannot freely choose the encoding bit rate for the music you bought.

Fortunately, I discovered that I could use a Linux ripper (grip) to extract the tracks as .wav and then use them to burn a real audio CD without this abominable "copy control" program which is sold as an "enhancement" to this product. The clean audio CD is iTunes friendly and only with this gimmick you can generate the AAC files for your iPod. Shame on EMI for making me waste an hour of my time to be able to use the content I paid for in the way that is most convenient to me.

After one hour of monkeying around, I finally can enjoy Marisa's beautiful music in the digital player that I own. No thanks to EMI for the hassle.

First, I believe this is the most ravishingly beautiful CD Marisa Monte has created. Yes, I have "Universo ao meu redeo." I love that completely too. As she has said interviews, she has released her unidentical twins in 2006.

Songs are short here. Hardly any are longer than 3 minutes. If you measure a CD by its length in minutes, then you will be disappointed. If you measure it by quality, then no. Her conception in this album is as perfect as I have ever heard from her. The songs,she says, were from several years or back composing, and if so, she has assembled a complete concept such I never have heard from her.

There is so much here. (Although Marisa has created so much beautiful music in the past, that . . . who can compare?) Dance tunes like "Aquela" and lyrical poems too. Brazilian music is almost all intensely lyrical. You must understand the Portuguese language or find a translation to really plump the depths of what is going on in the song.

Regardless, you can still be seduced by the sound. And it is here, in spades.

Here she composes songs with Carlinhos Brown and others, and I can't find anything that is not just wonderful. There is not one song here I would wish to set aside for another one. They are all equally wonderful.

If you love this and want more, go get Marisa's first CD. Or Memórias, Crônicas & Declarações De Amor. This CD is the basis of her concert DVD from her Rio de Janeiro concert and buy that too. Then you will start to know her.

This is not a review of the contents of this new pair of "twin" records from Marisa Monte. It is a warning to the buyer. Marisa Monte's two new discs are manufactured with anti-pirate software that prevents the owner of the disc from converting the songs into a format that can be loaded onto an iPod.

While I acknowledge that those who have property rights in works of art and music should be entitled to take reasonable measures to prevent damages caused by illegal and unauthorized commercialization of these works, I do not believe that the this sort of anti-pirating device is a reasonable measure. It interferes to an extraordinary degree with the reasonable uses of the legitimate purchasers and consumers of the music. iPods and mp3 players are ubiquitous. CDs as a medium for repeated play of music are fast being abandoned; rather, manufactured and packaged CDs now more than ever are simply a medium for moving music from the record company to the consumer in a symbolic format, but is certainly not the preferred format of repeat play any more.

Not only is this anti-piracy measure unreasonable to the extent it interferes with legitimate customer use of the product, but I am also skeptical that damages are as real and material as record companies believe. The record industry has been in decline for many years, and not exclusively because of the expansion of piracy. The market has been saturated and transformed. In most industries, a marketeer knows that you cannot count on mass consumption anymore. Consumers have become fragmented in their tastes and preferences. Gone are the days of massive pop phenomena. Pop records simply are not the same symbolic media of community and consumption that they were in the 1970s.

Anti-piracy software
I use a Squeezebox (see slimdevices.com for what they are :)) to play all my music... so being able to rip it is essential or I just have a spendy coaster. This ripped fine, despite all the labels on it about it being copy protected.
