Õ Blésq Blom é o disco mais eclético e experimental do octeto paulista, combinando elementos de música regional, punk, post-punk, pop rock, MPB, funk, eletrônica, country e reggae. As letras estão entre as melhores que os Titãs já escreveram: há crítica social ("Miséria"), lirismo ("Flores" e "Palavras"), inventário de patologias fisiológicas e anímicas ("O ... read more

Calango é, desde minha infância, meu álbum preferido do Skank; é o único que costumo ouvir na íntegra (tanto que há algum tempo comprei o CD novamente). Combina muito bem elementos de pop rock, reggae, ska, dance hall e música regional (destaque para o duelo de repentistas em "A Cerca").
Melhores faixas: "Pacato Cidadão", "É Proibido Fumar", "Jackie Tequila" e "Te Ver".

G. Bennett Foundation, a follower of the mystic Gurdjieff.
Some say that the band was on the verge of repeating the success of their debut album, In The Court Of The Crimson King ... read more

No Need to Argue is The Cranberries' best album. It is consistent (something that lacked in their later albums); not a single track can be dismissed as filler. Most songs share the jangle pop / folk style of their debut (the best example is "Ode to My Family"), but some of them try a rockier sound (specially "Zombie").
The highlights of the album are the four singles (the two aforementioned tracks plus "I Can't Be With You" and "Ridiculous Thoughts"), ... read more
