Best Brazilian Albums

A list with albums that I consider indispensable to understand the formation of the brazilian music identity

Secos & Molhados - Secos & Molhados
1.
100
This is the equivalent of Brazilian glam. But it sounds like an intersection between folk, progressive and mpb. The lyrics are awesome and very political, in a really dark times in Brazil. The bass in "Amor" is one of the most memorable things i've heard in music.
Best tracks: Sangue Latino, Vira, Rosa de hiroshima, Amor, Fala
Novos Baianos - Acabou Chorare
2.

Maybe this is the most famous brazilian album in the exterior. Ask for any music hipster "what is the best brazilian record ever ?". In 90% the answer will be this album. Perhaps this isnt even the best album of the group (Novos Baianos), the next two are great too. But take into account all the impact caused by this album, i almost agree with the 90% of the people.
The album is the one that gets closer of a sound that defines what is the brazilian music is. Your great trimph is the great sound plurality, mixing the a guitar that sounds like Jimi Hendrix, with a updated version of Bossa Nova and others brazilian music genres.
Best tracks: brasil pandeiro, preta pretinha, misterio do planeta, a menina dança e besta é tu.
Milton Nascimento & Lô Borges - Clube Da Esquina
3.
100
The most part of brazilian music in the 70s sounds unique, a mix of influences. This album isn't different.
Chico Buarque - Construção
4.
100
This record is the begin of a most political Chico.
Caetano Veloso - Transa
6.
100
In London Caetano record two albums, this is the best. The seven tracks are incredible. In this record Caetano gave to us your most experimental music yet. The album is the perfect mix between the old Caetano (bossa nova, Tropicalia and Beatles) and the new Caetano (Experimental and Musique concrète)
Gal Costa - Gal Costa
8.
97
Gal Costa é divina e maravilhosa.
João Gilberto - Chega De Saudade
10.
100
This is the birth of Bossa Nova, with a modificate samba João Gilberto change the brazilian music.
Legião Urbana - Dois
11.
95
Sounds like the Smiths, but Renato Russo is not a fascist.
Milton Nascimento - Minas
12.
95
Milton is one of the greatest voices of the brazilian history, this is the best solo album from him. The songs sounds like a progressive folk with some Jazz influences like his previous works (Clube da Esquina).
Paulinho Da Viola - A Dança da Solidão
17.
100
Two greats forms of music: the sad music and samba in one record
Gal Costa - Fa-tal - Gal a Todo Vapor
30.
98
The best brazilian live album, but with not good, as the album deserved, recording.
Cartola - Cartola
34.
88
There's so many sad songs here. You cant understand what Cartola is saying but you'll probably cry.
