    3-0 out of 5 stars Tu es mejor en espanol
    I love Shakira and have listened to her for years, but honestly she sounds so much better when singing in spanish. I am not a fluent speaker of spanish, but you can tell she has more feeling for the songs she writes and sings in spanish, than those in english. This album is good, but not her best. Hightlights on this album are Hips Don't Lie, and the re mix of La Tortura. I would recommend her first album, Fijacion Oral 1 over this.

    1-0 out of 5 stars She has lost her unique identity
    The question is: What has happened to Shakira? Where are her familiar, latin, explosive songs? This album has nothing that gives it an original Shakira identity, it's more like Shakira is trying too hard to lose her latina tamperament and become another Cristina Anguilera. I listened to the album once and afterwards could not remember the tune of a single song! The only interesting track is 'Don't bother' where the music is fine but the lyrics are so uninspirational! Furthermore, I'm getting a bit tired of seeing her in every single music video throwing liquids on her body and shaking her hips. Especially when you try to be a rocker, this nonsense a la Jessica Simpson seem so cheap, like you're trying to market yourself, not the music. Plus, she repeatedly 'thickens' her voice which sounds pretentious and at the end of the day, bad.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Hits Don't Lie?
    When i first purchased Shakira's Oral Fixation vol. 2, i was of course skeptical about what i was getting myself into.I purchased Laundry Service back in 2001 so i was hoping to hear a continuation of Laundry Service.Boy was i wrong and i must say, im glad i am.Laundry Service was an overall adequate listen, nothing memorable besides Whenever Wherever and Underneath your clothes.The first song of VOL. 2, "How Do You do" is so great!The raw beauty that comes out of this womans voice is just compeling yet at times i find myself wishing i could understand some of the stuff she says. I find her pronunciation confussing and tiring at times but with repeated listens to the entire album, i have found that it takes some getting used to.Once you get over the fact that Shakira's voice is unusual, you will see that her voice is a wonderful passionate instrument on its own.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Timeless chic !!!
    This 1963 album is one of the best examples of flawless bossa nova music to date. Stan Getz playing the saxophone, Joao Gilberto on guitar and Antonio Carlos Jobim on piano blend simultaneously into a uniquely talented trio of musicians as their hearts and minds create one exquisite song after another.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Does Getz Get Any Better?
    This is truly a classic Stan Getz album. His rich, distinctive tenor sax sound melts into the bossa nova beat as if he hadinvented it. Getz's smooth collaboration with Joao Gilberto, Astrud Gilberto, and Antonio Carlos Jobim produce silky, sensuous melodics on every track. This is a must-have for the longtime Getz fan or anyone who has just discovered the legendary 60's bossa nova genre.

    I loved Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.I saw the movie three times while it was in theaters and still could not get enough.Seu Jorge's character brought so much to the movie and I was a little disappointed that the soundtrack did not have all of his versions of our beloved David Bowie.The Bowie songs are great.The Jorge songs are great.I could listen to either one for hours on end and still not get sick of hearing them.Knowing the Bowie versions well also is a thrill when you hear this album because it surprises your ears with unexpected turns in tone and acoustic sounds.A definite necessity for any beach BBQ, I highly recommend this album.

    5-0 out of 5 stars If you love acousticor portuguese then you love this...
    I love acoustic guitar and my husband is 100% portuguese so what could be better. I doesn't hurt that I love David Bowie too. Seu Jorge's voice is hauntly beautiful and the songs are great. Since I don't speak portuguese I don't know how close the translation is but the songs are still great. We played the CD at work for weeks. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Magical, multi-faceted global journey.
    True to its intriguing and provocative title, Lee Ritenour's latest CD "Smoke 'N' Mirrors" takes listeners on a magical, multi-faceted global journey unlike any other in the legendary guitarist's three decade, nearly 40 album career.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Lee in 2006
    I've been listening to Lee Ritenour since the early 80's and love most everything he has done. This CD brings back some memories of older days which frankly I prefer and the sound quality is amazing. Several of the songs are dashboard banging upbeat tunes that are very unique, uplifting and infectous. Highly recomend. My only question to Lee is when are you going to tour again??

    4-0 out of 5 stars Smoke`n`mirrors
    Well, pretty good album, but for a long time Rit fan there are a better ones! The last song on the album reminds me of an old GRP sound, but for me there is always a question of (modern) production... For instance, I am very pleased to hear Fender Rhodes keyboard on a few songs, but this modern drum production sounds so shallow and therefore the whole song sound (the songs are great) is shallow too! Anyway, a solid 4! ... Read more

    my sisters listened to sergio mendez and brazil 66 when i was growing up, and i loved their music.now in 2006, this album proves his style, talent and genius are indeed "timeless".highly recommned this cd.every song is uniquely great.

    2-0 out of 5 stars "The fusion will never fail"(???)
    Brazilian music is my favorite genre. From the wild creativity of Chico Cesar to the electric stylings of the late Suba,from the soulful bossa nova of Bebel Gilberto to the bossa nova-meets-Indian classical of Ana Rita Simonka,I've found Brazilian popular music joyous&diverse.After all,I grew up listening to Sergio Mendes&Brasil '66!I was subtly enchanted by his songs.So,I was curious about "Timeless",since it's prominent at many a Starbucks.
    5-0 out of 5 stars ALBUM OF THE YEAR; BRILLIANT COLLABORATION; STUNNING RESULTS!
    To be clear, I am a big Sergio Mendes fan.I have always appreciated his musical sensibilities: smooth, sophisticated, eclectic.Perhaps the original "world music purveyor." I have derived enjoyment from every one of his musical incarnations/combinations, through the sixties, seventies, and beyond.

    It is as good as expected and more. All the songs are great, maybe with the exception of 6. Escondite Ingles. My personal favorites are 2. La Pared 7. No and 8. Las de la Intuicion. If you like Shakira this is a must have, especially for those that loved her previous spanish language albums.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but Shakira's voice makes it great
    Shakira is brilliant.Not only does she produce and write her own material, she sings in what I describe as the music business female sex's most unique bleat.Usually my reviews come from a third person perspective (since any critic knows that's the best way to approach a review), but it's hard to describe Shakira's musings without inserting my personal feelings and opinions toward and about it."La Tortura" is the biggest hit here, of course, and deservedly so.It's simply the best Latin pop song to come along in a long time.The beat, the poetic lyrics and that voice all combine to produce one awesome track.Fijacion Oral is a mismash of genres and, unfortunately, only a couple songs can even come close to approaching the instant smash "La Tortura" is.Opener "En Tus Pupilas" (featured on the later Oral Fixation album in English) is decent and sounds somewhat European."La Pared" is one of Fijacion's better moments."Las De La Intuicion" is the record's second best track with its disco-infused melody and charge-forward beat."Lo Imprescindible" use of thundering drums adds rock flavor to Fijacion while "Dia De Enero" is girlish fun.Though I prefer the English language Oral Fixation to the Spanish Fijacion Oral, with each listen this record just keeps getting better and better.

    3-0 out of 5 stars The English Oral Fixation is better
    Colombian rock goddess Shakira is quite the performer.The talented hip-shaker extraordinaire gives an impassioned performance in her trademark throaty-and-nasal bleat over the course of 12 addictive Spanish language tracks that make up Fijacion Oral Vol. 1.The standout here is, of course, the No. 1 global smash "La Tortura" featuring sexy call-and-response dialogue with Latin singer Alejandro Sanz ("La Tortura" is also presented in a remixed format but sits far below its original mix).The opener (featured in English on the later English language Oral Fixation Vol. 2) "En Tus Pupilas" is soft and sensual with its European-influenced mystique and chordal Spanish guitar, but unfortunately it's not one of Fijacion Oral's most memorable moments (aforementioned "La Tortura" holds that spot deservedly) and could keep listeners from delving deeper into the complex and individual workings of the remainder of the album.The bleaterrific "La Pared" showcases Shakira's rich and unique vocals, and is offered up in both original and acoustic versions."Lo Imprescindible" officially closes the record with its thundering drums and incredibly rock-oriented rhythm and beats.In the end, it's an interesting listen with few highs, but the English language Oral Fixation Vol. 2 is much more consistent and likable. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars I can do my laundry service any day!
    Shakira was right to call this "Laundry Service". Hearing the opening number "Objection" always makes me feel like I just bought this CD yesterday. This my first and only Shakira CD with English and it is refreshing tohear it every time. She has her fair share of hits on here that I can surely hear over and over, like "Whenever, Wherever" and "Eyes Like Yours". This is a pretty unusual crossover CD, containing both English and her native Spanish. Clearly, she finds it easier in her own language, evident in songs like "Suerte" and "Que Me Quedes Tu". Her English is a bit choppy, but people won't buy music from a Spanish singer to bask in their English. Her voice makes it difficult to listen sometimes, as in "Underneath Your Clothes" and "The One", and I feel that "Fool" and "Poem to a Horse" are positioned well yet often overlooked as many Shakira fans are lured to more her scantily clad dance videos than rocking songs about how her "heart is sore". As for me, I hope that the clothes in this cycle never dry out!

    1-0 out of 5 stars La Voz De ShakiraMe Hace Vomitar
    Where do I start? This is awful. "Underneath Your Clothes" sounds too much like Alanis Morrisette's "Head Over Feet." "Whenever, Wherever" sounds much better in the Spanish-version "Suerte" and the video to that was alright. The rest of the songs sound like 1980's leftovers retrieved from the trash. Other than that, Shakira sounds absolutely dreadful. It's like hearing someone scratching their nails down a chalkboard. This chick doesn't know if she wants to emulate Jewel, Alanis Morrisette, or Britney Spears.But I guess she was like, "F*** it! I'll sound like all three!" and all you get is chaos. You can't even tell what kind of emotion Shakira is trying to express in a song because her voice is so messed up. "Laundry Service" sucks and "Oral Fixation" Vol. 1 and 2 are even worse. Shakira's easy on the eyes but she's killer on the ears. She needs to dye her back to its original black color and take some singing lessons. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A remarkable collaboration
    Ten songs, ten perfect reasons to love this work. Each gentleman obviously had a fecund career of his own; yet, this effort represents a singular achievement in its own right. Too often when two legends come together they remain too much within their own realms of comfort (or ego) to make the effort genuinely worthwhile. Not so here. Both were willing to make concessions, forfeit a little of his own persona and adopt some of the other's in order to create a unique and extraordinary album. In fact, there are a couple instances it is difficult which one is singing, so seamless is their melding. Sinatra is at his sweetest and most plaintive. Jobim eases into American popular music effortlessly. The gorgeous orchestration by Claus Olgerman pulls together the production superbly. The result is a masterwork that sounds like neither a typical Sinatra album nor a typical Jobim album. The fifth track, "Meditation," summarizes these songs rather well: put on the CD, relax and lose yourself in this one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sinatra at his best
    This is great music sung by a great voice in his prime. It is soft,yet very sensual music. Sinatra and Jobim are quite a pairing!

    This CD is not similar to any of MM's previous albums because it consists solely of samba carioca.There are no emotionally charged or heart-wrenching MPB songs.But this is samba carioca and one shouldn't expect such an atmosphere.As is, it is a very well recorded samba album and, most importantly, is well-suited for dancing samba.Also, please note that MM has sung plenty of samba carioca throughout her career to good effect.For example, see Para Ver As Meninas from her album Memorias, Cronicas, e Declaracoes de Amor, a lovely samba that would fit in very well on this album.Recommended for those who enjoy samba carioca.

    Editorial Review

    A bridge between bossa nova and 1960s pop, Sergio Mendes' music was easy listening, vaguely psychedelic pop, light jazz, and bossa nova all rolled into one. Mendes and Brasil '66 (which featured Mendes on keyboards and a revolving cast of two female vocalists, bass, guitar, drums and percussion) had a number of hits from the mid-'60s to the early-1970s that are included here. Getting his professional start playing and arranging for Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Gilberto, Mendes typically filled out his proper albums with updated versions of popular songs written by the Brazilian masters as well as some of his own tunes ­ his tunes "Look Around" and "So Many Stars" are included. But this collection really surveys his interpretations of pop tunes of the day, some of which were never hits for Mendes. The small combo's light touch and rich vocal harmonies make for pleasant if kitschy covers of hits like the Beatles' "Fool On The Hill" and "Day Tripper," Burt Bacharach's "The Look Of Love," and others. ­ Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A welcome blast from the past.
    Some of the cuts on "Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66--Greatest Hits" sound as fresh as they did 40 years ago. Others sound dated, though charmingly so. The Brazilian originals fare best--"Mais Que Nada" is guaranteed to get your hips and your day swinging, and "Like a Lover" is incredibly sexy, soothing, and mellow. The pop standards are more a matter of taste, though "The Look of Love" is still one of the best recordings ever of any Bacharach-David song. Occasionally an otherwise impeccable cut will betray its vintage; the lovely bossa nova tune "So Many Stars" is marred by a brief harpsichord solo, reminding us all why the harpsichord craze of the '60s did not survive the decade. One thing that mars this CD is the lack of any songwriter credits--I guess A&M assumes everyone knows who wrote these songs, but it would still be nice to have the credits! I'm glad Mendes is having renewed success with his recent collaboration with rap artists, but I'm of a generation that will be happy sticking with this CD.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Lively beats and beautiful melodies

    2-0 out of 5 stars A disapointment
    If "Dreamer" was a masterpiece, "Around the city" is a disapointment. Ms. Elias should walk in the right side: just jazz. She shouldn't try a "mainstream" album, trying to be "funny" instead the usual talented piano artist as she is. Perhaps was a trick from the marketing people, "Eliane, goes to some accesible to the masses". But for Eliane's old friends this doesn't work. Go back to old ways, dear Eliane.

    3-0 out of 5 stars She's so much better than this
    I've followed Eliane from her early days with Steps Ahead, and I think she's fabulous.She carved out a whole class for herself by merging the passion, melody and irresistible harmonic forms of her native Brazilian music with the high energy and edge of New York City jazz.Her total mastery and deft compositional intuition in the resulting form are nothing short of astonishing.As a pianist, composer and arranger working this vein, she has no peers.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Supurb!!
    This has to be some of the best music I've heard in a long while. It wasn't my first impression, this cd is quite a departure from her previous music (originally jazz piano), and the first couple of tracks seem to jump from one style to another (each individually supurb), but, after a couple of listens, you lose all your preconceived notions of who Eliane Elias is supposed to be and just go with it - and what a great place she takes you to - great bossa, great rhythms .... supurb !! ...

    Editorial Review

    Her father may be the legendary Brazilian guitarist Joao Gilberto, but in 2000 daughter Bebel proved that she understands the bossa nova, too. There's a subtlety throughout this recording that makes Bebel's voice entrancing, as she re-creates the sensual essence of bossa nova before running with it into electronic territory toward the album's end.

    When this album first came out in 1999,I first saw it at Starbucks coffee shops. I dismissed it as snooze-inducing easy listening,perfect for the background of sipping an overpriced latte.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Very good music
    Best album in my collection.Good job Bebel I'm looking forward to your next album.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Love It
    I know little about Brazilian music, Bossa Nova or Latin music in general, but I really like this. This is the most beautiful non English speaking music I have ever heard. The perfect intro to contemporary Brazillian tunes. Bebel is relaxed jazz stuff with upbeat sounds, different from the everyday music you normally hear. I just finished reading a few of the negative reviews and I just don't understand them. This CD is one of the few that I own where all the songs are really great. This album brings together so many different musical styles, but it doesn't feel contrived or over produced. The elements and songs flow so smoothly, effortlessly. "August Day Song" is a sexy, song with deep Afro-Cuban beats and sounds like a hot summers day. My favorite CD at the moment.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'd give it 6 stars if I could!!!
    Stan Getz is in this sax player's opinion the best jazz saxophone player that has ever been recorded. His sense of melody is superb. He hides his amazing technical prowess, makes it sound effortless, and never gets in the way of the melody. Nobody else even came close to his melodic improvisations.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic; great memories, so easy to appreciate
    A must piece of work in the latin genre to include in your collection; I've heard bits and pieces of these tracks throughout my life; it's about time I added all of them to my collection.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Contrary to Mr. Gibson's jottings.
    According to information readily available in the CD booklet, Jazz Samba was "Recorded in Pierce Hall, All Souls Unitarian Church, Washington, D.C., February 13, 1962." Not in a studio! That accounts for the warmth of the recording. It remains the standard against which all else is measured. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album!
    I heard a brief review and snippets from this album on NPR and was very intrigued--enough to pick it up on Amazon.I wanted to pick it up that day, but I couldn't find it elsewhere.It was worth the wait!Haunting, melodic, lots of different influences, and infinitely listenable.At the top of my current playlist.I have sent it out as a must have to several friends who have all thanked me for the recommendation.Now, I am going to check out her other albums.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Canciones sin coros
    On the surface, any similarities between what is commonly and reductively termed "folk" music (i.e., anything song-based and acoustic guitar-driven) and "electronica" (formless composition, laptops, synths, beats, bloops, etc.) seem tangential at best. Those who scoff at the notion of "folktronica" (or at least the term) have been given plenty of fodder over the last decade to justify their scorn. I'm thinking of the practice of gussying up already-finished acoustic guitar-driven songs with current-sounding electronic beats and hastily packaging them for public consumption.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Juana's Most Mysterious
    Juana Molina has been putting quiet Folktronica jewels for a while now. Not renouncing her Argentinean moods, Molina chooses here to explore wilder shores of Folk, somewhat reminiscent of Animal Collective, or Devendra Banhart in subdued moments.

    5-0 out of 5 stars New Tango
    Tango: Zero Hour was the very first tango recording/CD I had ever heard. A friend of mine loaned it to me, not ever telling me exactly what Tango was- all I knew to think of was the dancers with the roses between their teeth, where the dancing was more dramatic than the music... So, my first mistake: having never heard tango. My second? Listening to it late at night in the dark. Music had never rocked my world quite like this... It was the most intense experience I had ever had with music. I was shocked. Wide-eyed. Taken aback. The version I had in my hands was the original with the liner notes, not the new shiny one that I now own (and that you can now buy), and the prose written on the card inside was enough to rip me in half without having ever heard the music. Tango: Zero Hour is not for the faint at heart. It is not for the light enthusiast. As the liner notes so eloquently said: "And suffer, Motherf*****. This is the Tango."

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tango evolved to its most abstract and profound expression
    Im ashamed to say I began listening to Piazzola at my mid thirties... well, better late than never... Im not a music critic, but all I can say is that Tango has a higher dimmension where it becomes universal and mayble the category of jazz (higher jazz that is) is best to classify it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A must
    This is music to breathe and dream to. Piazolla at his best is probably the most enchanting and transcendental. It takes a Master Extraordinaire to make music like this, Piazolla's recordings only get better with age and never outdated because it is made up of the spirit and passions of a life lived richly. The Melancholy laments of the Bandoneon is truly one of the most haunting, nostalgic most beautiful musical Innovations ever made and noone interprets the manic poetry of it like Piazolla. I can't say much more then what the others have said here but this belongs in every serious music afficianado's collection. ... Read more

    I first purchased this cd several years ago for myself, it was a wonderful way to relax. When my son came along I put it in his room among other "kids" cds.My son, now age 9,(who won't listen to anymore "kid" cds) absolutely loves it.He has been falling asleep to this wonderful cd for the past 3 years.I loved being able to share "the world" with him through music.Recently we remodeled and unfortunately the cd was chipped! He was heartbroken... so here I am purchasing another!Soothing rhythms, soft voices, wonderful instrumentation. A cd that the entire family will love and not get tired of hearing.Even familiar lullabies are updated very nicely. ... Read more

    This is Jobim's finest album, although Stone Flower and Tide are certainly worth checking out.The songwriting on this album is sublime, the arrangements are brilliant and the execution is flawless.The melodies are minimal, yet strikingly elegant: they are small but very effective, impressionistic tone poems, each exquisite in its own right.

    Tres Cosas es exquisito desde el minuto cero, las guitarras lo llevan a uno flotando en el aire, y la voz de Juana, suave y m�stica, trasporta. Reci�n ahora le est�n dando un poco de pelota en Argentina, ya que desde "Juana y sus hermanas" hasta "segundo" la gente le di� la espalda y ella se fu� a buscar comprensi�n a otro lado.

    I don't know what the lyrics mean because I don't speak the language but Juana Molina playing in a room is like lighting a smudge, it fills the room and pushes away a days lament and lets your positive thoughts float.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful from start to finish, a must have!
    When I heard the track 'Tres Cosas' on radio one night I knew I had to get the album, and it's quickly turned into one of my favourites - Juana Molina's airy voice floats through a set of mellow and hypnotic tracks that flow perfectly from one to the next. It may create a more subdued mood compared to her album 'Segundo' but in my opinion 'Tres Cosas' is miles ahead of that one - it's more subtle and refined production lends it a warm, enveloping ambience - something that can be enjoyed more and more with each listen, even if you can't understand the lyrics! ...
