After the unfortunate malaise of English cover songs this great Brazilian singer attempted in 2004, Tropicalia provocateur Caetano Veloso again flexes in true form, proving he hasn't lost touch with the searing guitar riffs and sweet, slightly off-kilter falsetto vocals that made him a global icon. Credit is equally due to his son, Moreno, whose production efforts make Cê top notch. Caetano's still got his way with the ladies, apparent on these luscious ballads, but it's the hyper "Odeio" and screeching, Os Mutantes-esque throwback "Rocks" that take us back a few decades.
