While it's true that all of the songs on Seriously Good Music: Bossa Nova should in fact be considered bossa nova (something that cannot always be said with regard to all of Petrol's releases), the album certainly misses most of the names that defined that genre. Antonio Carlos Jobim, for example, is found only in the fact that he co-wrote three of the songs ("Corcovado," "Desafinado," and "Medita‡ao") included, and Sergio Mendes, Chico Buarque, and Joao Gilberto are lacking completely. That doesn't mean that there's not some good bossa nova on the compilation: Wanda S , who's featured four times, has a great, warm voice that fits perfectly with the rhythms and tones of the music, and Os Cariocas' "Telefone" is fantastic as well. Yes, it's true that this record isn't claiming to be the definitive bossa nova collection, but its title is still a bit deceptive. ~ Marisa Brown
