CD Review: Badi Assad's 'Between Love And Luck'

Badi Assad
Between Love And Luck

Brazil's Badi Assad brings us yet another fine recording of uppity, pop-infused, Brazilian-concoctions of stupendous proportions. The music is playful, vibrant, and varied. The edgy pop, rock, and alternative stylings incorporate the basic Brazilian sounds we come to love, but there is more to the music than meets the ear. Badi's subtle vocals are more diverse than Ceu's and a bit more mature, too. The refined tunes are varied enough to thwart boredom and staleness. In fact, it is almost impossible to create a bad album from Brazil. There is so much music to work with and Badi succeeds admirably. Between Love And Luck is a fourteen-track release that is not to be missed. Fans of Brazilian music should check this one out. ~ Matthew Forss
