4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Results, But Good CD October 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This CD was a little bit of a disappointment for me. It sounds like she is trying to cross into the Spanish speaking market. Working with Emilio Estefan is a blessing for most Latin artists. His midas touch didn't rub off as well on Sol Da Liberdade. One of the problems with this album is that it has too many producers and collaboraters. As the saying goes, "Too many cooks spoil the broth."
Daniela Mercury has a very distinctive and lovely singing style that is complemented with axe and samba. Sol Da Liberade isn't a bad CD, but it isn't as consistent like the funky Electrica.
The album began on a promising note with the title track. The whistles on "Groove De La Bahiana" were annoying and I associated them with catcalls. "Perola Negra" is a wonderful tribute to Afro Brazilians, but the song needed more edge. "Santa Elena" is well put together story that would make an [butt] kicking video. The song itself is well arranged. "Axe, Axe" would be an even better song live. "Itapua @No 2000" is a bit hard to understand lyrically. I am not that fluent in Portuguese. I use my Spanish to understand Portuguese. "Sou Voce" is a very lovely bossa nova song. In this song, Daniela's voice sounds very smoky, yet light and hits all the right notes. "Dara" is a light, delicate and beautiful song. "Funk Da Decepcao" is a good listen, but it needs more funk (no pun intended). "So No Balanco Do Mar" has really strong lyrics and the song arrangement is impressive. The music itself is too glosed over and could be better. "Viagem" has a nostalgic, romantic feel. Everything about this song is wonderful. "De Tanto Amor" is a nice sad song. The Spanish lyrics in this song are a bit choppy, but I won't hold it against her because her singing makes up for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pearl of the brazilian music September 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD that brings back Daniela Mercury, to the MPB music. Four years after her last CD, Feijo Com Arroz, she returns with a great CD that express her talent, with two nice musics, Il Pérola Negra, (that received the Best Axé Video Clip Award at the Video Music Awards - 2000 on MTV Brazil), and Crena e Fé produced by Emílio Stefan Jr, the same that produces Gloria Stefan and Ricky Martin. In this CD, Daniela mixed new rythims with her own Axé style, like in Itapu @no 2000 made with Fernanda Abreu. In fact this CD is a pearl of the brazilian music

5.0 out of 5 stars This cd is awesome November 20, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the first cd of Daniela Mercury I have bought. It really is a great cd. She has a beautiful voice and each track is has its own style. I am hooked! I would recommend this cd to anyone that is interested in Brazilian popular music, and also to anyone that loves the portuguese language.
