Suncomm Media Max anti piracy limits the usefullness of the CD. You cannot play it on a PC without installing their software. Ripping the CD tracks to your PC so you can load them onto your ipod, or other portable media device will not work since the tracks come out garbled.

As long as you are only planning on playing the CD in your car or home CD player you will be fine. For me, it is like purchasing a musical paperweight, since my Car, Home and portable MP3 players can't be used.

This goes for all of the Kinkysweet CD's. Bar Grooves, Frequent Flyer etc.

It may be true that the music is outdated and unoriginal but for those who are uninitiated into the nu-bossa scene like myself then the CDs provide some pleasant enough tunes.

But the real bummer comes from the piracy protection. Impossible to play the CD on your PC without installing MediaMax's programme, and even then you can only listen when the CD is in the machine... so no copying to your computer, transfering to iPod or the likes. Surely with the rise of MP3, MediaMax will have to change this ridiculous anti-piracy protection else all their CDs will be relegated to dusty shelves and never heard.

I quite like the FF series, and this is definitely a good one. One disc upbeat, the other more down-tempo.

And for those complaining about the anti-piracy software (for those who already purchased it), or those worries about it (if you haven't yet purchased it), there's a very simple solution. You see, I bought this CD when it was originally released a few years back. Back then, I had my 6 CD changer in my car, which was my main music source, so I didn't really care all that much about the anti-piracy software. However, as I began ripping my CD library into iTunes, I discovered, as many others have, that it was impossible to rip. Of course, I was running Windows on my computer. As I began eliminating CDs and relying solely on listening to music through my iPod or iPhone, I became disappointed that I apparently couldn't include this little gem into my iTunes library.

However, within the past year, I finally ditched my Windows PC and bought an iMac. And guess what? It rips into iTunes without any problems whatsoever. Obviously, the anti-piracy software on the disc is solely Windows-based.

So the solution is simple: use a Mac. Don't have a Mac? Surely you must know *someone* who has a Mac. If so, all you need to do is have them rip it into their library, create a playlist for it, burn the playlist onto a couple of CDs (which will now be purely audio-only CDs), and then use your burned CDs to import into iTunes (or whatever other media app your using).

Easy peasy.

I got the Rio version of this copilation of CD's very groove B, I really like how some this artist not being from Brazil can create such cool felling that makes you feel like you are in this beatiful region of the world, now the first cd of this set is mellow kick back and chill my favorite track on this one will be "Under My Sensi" Boozoo Bajou [El Trio Electrico] extreme Relax mood if you are feeling like you need a break from it all this will be the track to listen to, the second cd is up beat one, on this one you can get ready to shake it, tracks mix in and the only thing you will need is a good dancer my favorite track on this one is "Palco" [Soulman & Ms Batucada Mix] the breaks on this track are just amaizing i love it every time i heard the break is coming i turn the volume all the way up no matter if the people next door complain [LOL].

Now some people have trouble rippping this copilation into their PC or their MP3 i wanna say i did have this problem, if you are trying to rip it with Windows Media Player you will never be able to do this, what you need to do is get one of your friends who has I tunes [Apple player] and this will do the trick.

I love the first CD. It has a lot of nice rhythm. The second disc is kind of boring, though.

I had the same problem when I was using a Windows based program (i.e. WMP), but if you use i-tunes, the music will be transfered without any problems or any BS programs. If you have a MAC is even better, any CD that has any type of copyright will be transfered to your hard drive without any problems. My Recommendation to all the blog is to USE iTUNES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bought it expecting it to be as good as FS: Buenos Aires

Some good songs, not so great mixing

...AND if you want tu load it to your PC, just try different programs or a different computer. Had the same problem, and all I did was use another computer. Just have some patience!

Unfortunately, this CD does not play, so I can't give it much of a review musically, only to warn people away who might expect CDs they buy to play.

The company made it not play on purpose. They put a thing on so that your computer won't play it, in the hopes that you won't be able to copy it. Sadly, that means you can't play it on your computer and that really limits my options.

They also put lots of errors in the tracks, which are supposed to be compensated for by the correction codes, but that unfortunately does not work on the CD changer in my car. So it doesn't play there either.

The only place it does play (out of 5 places I tried) is on the crappy boom box in the bathroom.

There are many fish in the ocean, and there are many CDs on the market. I suggest buying one that will not hassle you.
