Tom ze, the brilliant Brazilian Tropicalia member, has always marched to the beat of his own drummer, and in doing so has created some of the most amazing music to ever come from Brazil. (or anywhere else)

Ze's music always is a wonderful mixture of traditional bossa nova and samba, but that's where the traditional aspect of it ends. From there, he will likely fuse musique concrete, avant garde, traditional classical, even techno, hip hop, etc. It doesn't matter to Ze. I liken him to a musical bandit, musically taking what he wants and needs, then re-distributing the music to the masses. Lyrically, his songs are at once caustic, poignant, ironic. He has an amazing clairvoyance that allows him to see the suffering and humanity of the world. A true gift.

This cd is a wonderful introduction to the man and his music. It has a wonderful timelessness that will endear listeners to him for an eternity. While at times quite idiosyncratic, the music nevertheless is surprisingly accessable. Another reviewer likened him to an accessable Captain Beefheart- an apt analogy.

Fans of Tropicalia or Brazilian music likely know who Ze is. If you are at all curious about out-there music or have had your musical appetite whetted by these reviews, this cd is a fabulous place to begin your journey into the world of Tom Ze. And its an amazing place. - Sean (Chesterfield, Virginia, United States), Amazon.com
