Woman on Top

Music from the Motion Picture

Sony Classical

There seems to be an awful lot of fuss about this film, and specifically about its principal, Penelope Cruz; I’ll dismiss any arguments of quality by saying that it’s yielded a pretty solid soundtrack, a classy selection of gentle Brazilian music. Fourteen tracks from the likes of Baden Powell, Xavier Cugat, and Paulinho Moska are the perfect way to pass a rainy indoors afternoon, or a night of breeze and moonlight. Outside the traditional sounds, there’s a brilliant remix of Moska’s “Falsa Baiana” by BossaCucaNova. A worthwhile sidetrack into the genre.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
