We gave it an A

Twenty-five years ago, as part of the Tropicalismo movement, Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil stirred up a ruckus by mixing traditional Brazilian music with a wild stew of outside influence-pop, experimentalism, jazz, and whatever else worked. Now comes the long-awaited sequel, Caetano y Gil: Tropicalia 2, a crazy yet perfectly logical jewel. What styles go in-samba, rap, sampling, sensuous balladry, a splash of Hendrix-come out sounding mind-bendingly beautiful.
