  • I was happily surprised...

    Following the widely praised self titled album, i was in all honesty quite disappointed by "New York City" initially. I mean seriously, I was comparing amazing songs like "Homme" and "Don't Stop" to the different/new sounds of this album. Let me point this out...it IS different than their older stuff. But different...can...and IS good! I fell in love with songs like "Internatiocional" and "Perpetuo Mobile". I never knew Brazilian Girls could make me feel as good as bands like Broken Social Scene.
  • love em!!!

    I have been a fan of the Brazilian Girls ever since they released their first album. I've seen them in concert multiple times and I had a blast every time! They know how to rock the house. So I was really looking forward to this album, ...and I have never been more disappointed! This does not have the same spark as the first two. All the songs seem really trippy and lackluster. It feels like they weren't even trying. What happened?

    I don't know may be I am biased since I love BG, but again this album is great! My favorites are St Petersburg, Internacional and L'Interprete!

    They say you've got 20 years to write your first album, and less than 12 months to write, record, and promote your second. It's probably down to six months for the 3rd one. I'm fine for different sonic styles, and creative directions, but I don't feel this album has the musical or lyrical substance that their first mainstream album had. The first album felt like a complete piece that offered a complete feeling. This latest one feels like pieces laced together. Let's hope by the 4th album they get comfortable with themselves again because they truly are a fantastic band.
  • ANOTHER MASTERPIECE!

    I've adored the past 2 Brazilian Girls albums, and this one is a worthy addition to their discography. What is even more extraordinary is that the band is actually more impressive when experienced live. I don't really get how this is a step in a more "pop" or mainstream direction, as some other people here have suggested. "Good Time" is probably the most radio-friendly track, but the rest is hardly the kind of thing I could imagine hearing on Top 40 American radio. Bravo!

    Brazilian Girls have it all. I, like many avid BG fans, was at a loss when Jesse Murphy left, but the new album itself is still pretty fantastic. The majority of the songs don't really sound reminiscent of older Brazilian Girls' songs, but nevertheless deliver many of the same endorphins. Losing Myself, Strangboy, Good Time, Nouveau American, and L'Interpret/ Internacional are all astounding to say the very least. Stellar album, from a stellar artist.

    I purchased this album as a random click on iTunes, because the name sounded familiar. I was pleasantly surprised. The first track "St. Petersburg" has an excellent melody, steady back-beat with a great bridge groove. Basically it is an excellent Pop-Song. "Losing Myself" sounds like a track off Blur's "Park Life" and is generally reminiscent of mid 90's euro-pop. "Berlin" sounds like it was written on a French-Carousel, which is the records first detour off the pop-train. "Strangeboy" continues down the road less traveled, but things kick back into gear with authority in the track "Good Time" (the definitive pop-anthem on this record). At this point the record gears down, with a slight pop-reprise in "Internacional". The remainder slowly fades into obscurity, along with my attention, but seriously, who listens to entire records anymore? Starts with a bang, ends with a whimper, in my honest opinion. Take it or leave it, but I'll be spinning this record for a while...
