  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. Despite its disparate influences and multi-handed production approach, All in One never feels less than cohesive.
  2. Despite the large cast, All in One is a remarkably unified record; no one makes a larger impact here than Bebel Gilberto herself, while she and executive producer Didie Cunha create a record that's modern in execution but classic in its feel.
  3. The set features several strongly tropical numbers, like the gentle 'Cancao de Amor' and a fine cover of her father's original bossa nova classic 'Bim Bom.'
  4. All In One is instead a contented album by a contented woman, a series of shared moments that may not challenge but will not offend either.
  5. Here the daughter of bossa nova creator Joao Gilberto has made an album that either drowns in its own sensuousness and sentimentality.
