Album Review
Reviewed 2011-10-02
This is Brazilian singer Cibelle Cavalli's 2nd full-length album produced in London. In this opus, Cibelle plays an intergalactic cabaret singer in love with a Martian. The album is a collage of vintage Brazilian tracks, lounge music and space opera. It is like an imaginary movie soundtrack. Highlights include covers of Sesame Street Kermit's "It's not easy being green" and the Hawaiian-tinged "Under the Mango Tree".

1*. Cute intro. Kinda weird. Would be perfect before a PSA or LID.
2**. Hawaiian melody / harmonies. Retro rock rhythm. Sweet female voice. Cute
3. midi synthetizer + dubstep. intergalactic trip-hop with Brazilian influences.
4. Space waltz.
5*. Cover of Raymond Scott's eponymous song. Dubstep rhythm. Soulful singing.
6*. slow tempo. no drums. piano + vocal accompaniment. etheral.
7. mid-tempo. brazilian-tinged guitar + drum accompaniment.
8. opens up with vintage Brazilian music samples. Then morph into retro/surf rock.
9*. oompah rhythm. English lyrics.
10**. vintage rock feel. no drums. male/female duo. sweet. manages to not become a trivial rock song.
11. Brazilian rhythmic section. Heavy bass guitar dominates the soundtrack.
12**. Cover of Sesame Street Kermit's ballad. Slow. Soulful. Subtle bossa nova rhythm.
13. A cappella + acoustic guitar accompaniment. Vintage feel.
