1001 Albums You Must Hear (and Blog about) Before You Die

My attempt to blog all of the entries from the book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die

593. Vento De Maio – Elis Regina

Brief Background: Vento De Maio was released in 1978. It appears to be the same album (according to discogs) as her 1980 release Elis, with the tracks in a different order. In truth though, I’m not sure if this is the album referred to in the book or not. If anyone has a correction, I would be happy to re-listen to the correct album. Elis was her last studio release before her death in 1982.

What I think: I think I’ve said it before, but I can’t really get into music with lyrics that aren’t in English. I’m aware it is a personal deficit, but that’s the way it is. That being said, this is maybe some of my most liked non-English music in this project. There is a lot of energy in the music and certainly in her voice. It’s certainly pleasant… It’s just not engaging.

Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? It’s a tough one… even though it makes me feel close minded, I have to say let’s skip it.
