When I first bought this CD, I knew very little of Gilberto Gil.
Sam Saverance
If the likes of Paul McCartney made good, quality music with integrity such as Gil after 30 years, pop music would not be in the sorry state it is today.

A work of genius that uplifts humanity and is amazingly fluid to listen to."

When I first bought this CD, I knew very little of Gilberto Gil. I was simply looking for something Brazilian. Now, i can only slap myself over the head for not discovering him sooner. The man combines intelligent lyrics covering a wide range of subjects with a diverse rhythem covering multiple musical styles. This is a CD to be enjoyed by all, no matter what your tastes are. I have never heard anyone sing about the internet and quantum theory as poetically as Mr. Gil. This CD, as with the numerous Gilberto Gil CD's i have purchased since this one, is the true essence of songwriting and expression.

A gloriously mature CD from the Brazilian master, filled with treasures. Thank heavens that those who do not speak Portuguese will have translations of Gil's brilliant lyrics, which cover diverse topics from quantum theory to the true story surrounding a rescue (by one of Gil's band) of a drowning boy in Bahia. And the music, including a lovely guitar homage to Joao Gilberto that showcases Gil's instrumental skill, is equally marvelous, drawing from a number of different styles. Gil's voice retains its beauty, warmth, and playfulness, especially on "Pela Internet"--a reference to the song "Pelo Telefone," the very first recorded samba--where he teasingly imitates Mick Jagger as he sings "I can't get no...connection." Highly recommended.

Gilberto Gil is a godsend. After wallowing a few years in drum-machine pop in the 1980's (which, by drum machine pop standards was still good), Gil comes out with a beautifully-made ode to science, art, nature and technology. This CD contains 20 songs--and there's not a bad one in the bunch! On its own, this CD is amazing, but also remember that this CD came out in 1997--exactly 30 years after his first album, "Louvação" (recently re-released). If the likes of Paul McCartney made good, quality music with integrity such as Gil after 30 years, pop music would not be in the sorry state it is today. My favorites are "O Mar e o Lago", "Dança de Shiva" and "Estrela". And don't forget "Pela Internet"--a better song about the Net than any Internet-generation artist could create! Do yourself a favor--GET THIS CD!

I live up north in Canada (Québec) and believe me, listening to this album was such a discovery that I decided to learn brazilian portuguese just to better enjoy this music. Sure enough, it lead to Veloso, Buarque, Ivan Lins, etc...
What a wonderful new world of music!

Gilberto Gil concocts a blend of such diverse styles as bossa nova, Bahian, pop, rock, and country(!), on this haunting CD, with his agile voice flavoring the brew. Great songs performed by awesome musicians. Buy it!

I wish I were as verbose as some of the great reviewers here at Amazon, but I don't have that kind of talent. This CD is simply fabulous, I could not say enough good things about it. It is so wonderful to listen to. This CD is a MUST HAVE for your collection, believe me. After listening to this, Gilberto became my favorite male Brazilian artist.

This is music-making of the highest order. The music is a reflection of the many threads of Brazilian society--from Bossa Nova to Africa. The mood is never anything but light, gauzy. Close your eyes and you'll swear you're floating.

Estuve muy impresionado con la riqueza de la música de Gilberto Gil. Los colores aquí se demuestran claramente en cada canción. Brasil siempre les ha proporcionado a genios musicales diversos a la música internacional.
