Cibelle's debut cd, which was self-titled, was absolutely refreshing, it was everything you dreamed of Brazilian music sounding like. I could smell the atmosphere of Rio de Janiero from my stereo. Not so of her sophomore. Even the title, "The Shine of Electric Dried Leaves" should've told me something strange had happened. Nothing makes sense about this album, from the lyrics to the organization of melodies. Everything is random, and although there is a stab for an artistic, fantastical uniqueness...this cd doesn't arrive at that destination. And honestly, it's just plain weird. "Weird" is emphasized. The only positive point I have for my girl Cibelle's album would be "Esplendor," a back-to-basics bossa nova standard. Save your money, rent it from the library. If you're a huge fan of her, you'll probably buy it anyway, but don't say I didn't warn you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
