The album is impressive on many counts. The overall album has a consistent tone -- a dark and slightly edgy feel, not unlike the music of the Gift -- yet each song is unique and different from the next.
Gaivota - Hoje - Amália Hoje musical arrangements are complex and often massive, incorporating the London Session Orchestraa choir of vocalists, piano, synthesizer, and drum programming. The featured vocalists take turns, often teaming up with one Concorde Drive - Raven (59) - 限り無く赤に近い黒 on a particular song; indeed, only three of the nine songs are solo features. One of the solo features, "Gaivota," is a standout performance by Tavareswho channels the spirit of Rodrigues with aplomb over a haunting musical arrangement of strings, piano, and drum programming.
The end result is an album that's both edgy and stately, drawing from Portuguese musical tradition yet at the same time pointing toward the future. It's no wonder that the album was such a phenomenal success, for on the one hand it pays homage to the legacy of Rodrigues and on the other retains much of what makes the Gift one of Portugal's greatest homegrown alternative musical acts.
