One of the greatest albums ever from Caetano Veloso -- a rare all-English language set, recorded in London during the years of his exile! The post-Tropicalia set is a fair bit different than any other Veloso album we can think of -- not just because of the English language, but also because the approach is somewhat gentle, and almost folksy at times -- a real change from his experimental modes of the late 60s, and easily his most personal statement to date. The tunes are incredibly beautiful -- filled with themes of loss and longing that no doubt come from his separation from Brazil -- and although a few tunes feature light strings from Phil Ryan, most of the backings are relatively light, and almost acoustic. Titles inlcude the classics "Shoot Me Dead", "If You Hold a Stone", "Maria Bethania", "In The Hot Sun Of A Christmas Day", and "London, London" -- plus a cover of "Asa Branca".
