  1. And whereas the dark era that began with a military coup in 1964 is now relegated to Brazil's history, the music it inspired sounds fresher and more provocative than ever.
  2. One of the most important anthologies to come along in quite a while.
  3. A perfect mix of giddy tropical rhythms and Beatles-style experimentation. [27 Jan 2006, p.85]
