Many aj listees had this compilation on their last 5 cds playlist, so I had to check it out. I like both Drum&Bass and Brazilian music so I don't really know why I didn't do that earlier.
At first I was a bit sceptic, d'n'b is getting older, number 3 in any series is usually a stretch. The first spins confirmed this - I had heard this before. Still, somehow it grows on you. Now I play the 2 cds once a day. The language is beautiful, the groove is fine for programming (keeps the tempo up) and it's a quite varied mix of songs.
Yes, the album box is covered in cloth.
