Concert recorded in 1992 especially for Brazilian MTV.

Cedo and Others.
This is the last Legião Urbana's album before
lead singer Renato Russo's death, and it is the best one. The album starts with
"Natália", a speed-power-ballad, with heavy drums and a furious guitar, and then
the album features moments between the complete despair ("A via láctea"), some
hope ("Esperando por mim") and the definitive farewell song ("Mil pedaços"). The
arrangements and Renato Russo's voice, near to the end, are fabulous. It is the
best album written in Portuguese ever made. --an Amazon
Volumes One and Two Compiled on a Two CD Set Including Previously Unreleased Live Recordings from 1994. This Show was the Group's Last Performance in Rio De Janeiro Before their Lead Singer's Untimely Death.
This duble CD contains live recordings and special recordings for radio and TV, from 1985 to 1992. It includes 5 tracks from MTV unplugged, 6 from a show in São Paulo and also a previously unreleased track: "Canção do Senhor da Guerra". There are also The Rolling Stone's "Gimme Shelter" and Neil Young's "On the Way Home," in the 20 tracks. It's surely the best album of this Brazilian band and the greatest album I have ever listened to... --an Amazon reviewer
This is a wonderful CD from the late Legião
Urbana, with very catchy and moody songs. Just listen to "Pais e Filhos", where
Renato Russo tells us about what he feels about father and son relationships,
weaving a soulful and broad panel of all kinds of situations: divorced parents
kids, abandoned children and spoiled, selfish and ungrateful ones. "Ha Tempos"
reminds us of the rough times we're living, with AIDS taking its toll and
desperation driving the more tender souls into taking their own lives. "Monte
Castelo" was originally a poem by St. Thomas Aquino, beautifully enhanced by
Renato's music and very soulfully sang. --an Amazon
Dois is still one of my favorite albums of all
time. The music is timeless and the lyrics are unparalleled (if you don't speak
Portuguese, you're missing out). I also strongly recommend the band's
self-titled album, but "Dois" is their best effort. --an Amazon
A classic piece of Brazilian history. Four rebels that had a lot to say about society, love, and depression. Included in the band as singer is Renato Russo, the most intense lyricist this world has ever known. But they die so young... --an Amazon reviewer
