  1. Folklore is about the joy of making something new out of random elements, and few other albums this year have captured that pleasure as well as this one does. [28 Nov 2003, p.123]

    I must say that I wholeheartedly disagree with the above reviews. This album is an innovative yet natural progression of Furtado's style I must say that I wholeheartedly disagree with the above reviews. This album is an innovative yet natural progression of Furtado's style and skill as an artist, vocalist, and producer. I was amazed with the genuine emotion of the vocals and ingenuity of the arrangements. It's an album that I can listen to endlessly (as with the first) and still get a new feeling or perspective, like a good book you keep re-reading. The raw energy and life of this music is excitingly contagious and uplifting. Full Review »
