With obnoxious lyrics that extend the limits of humorous raunchiness, and musical arrangements that parrody artists from The Clash, to Rush, to Sepultura to various artists from Brazil, Mamonas Assassinas' only studio album is a parade of deliberate, self-aware stupidity that plays like a best-of collection. Among the targets of their parody are pathetic lovesongs about men whose girlfriends or wives have been unfaithful or have left them, songs about country folk who go to the big city and traditional music from Portugal.
The sad reality is that this is indeed a best-of collection: The whole band died in a tragic plane crash just a year after the release of this album. If the critics in Brazil called this work shallow and idiotic, the popularity of Mamonas, must certainly have annoyed them.
To the unaided American ear (non-Portuguese speaking) the music and beat did have a way to capture popular Brazilian pop! But keep it away from the "criancinhas."
