Exudes this song ... rhythmic lyricism very nicely orchestrated under a submissive melody ... a combination that together with poetry seduces the listener ... a very nice recording that with its simplicity brings out all the musical instruments of the piece ... an air with latin elements that point to exotic parts ... a song that we are fond of and we are attracted to !!!
The song is the voice
I really enjoy reviewing foreign music, because I can concentrate less on the words and more on how they are being sung. Anibal Rapuso has a fantastic baritone voice, which is also very melodic and also displays a great range. His voice is the main instrument of this pretty ballad, “I know a poem.” He reminds me of a more melodic Serge Gainsbourg, in the way he tells a story, much in the style of Gordon Lightfoot. There are not a lot of changes in the song, but it still holds together with the voice, guitar, keyboard and light percussion. I don’t believe I hear a baseline, which makes it a little more on the treble end, which brings out more emotion. The song’s chorus is very subtle, just slightly deviating from the main riff, but Rapuso’s voice holds it all together. As I listen to this pretty little ballad again, I also hear strains of Zucchero, the Italian singer. A very strong selection, with it’s strength in the subtle beauty of the whole. Very nice song from a great singer, sung from the heart.

Beautiful guitar sounds
Beautiful guitar sounds and intro! Deep voice too, I wish I could understand Portuguese as I am only able to get the nostalgic and soothing feeling. Truly loving the guitar layers and how the music is woven around these words that remain mysterious to me.
Very tasteful and lyric omposition. The music adapts very good to the lyrical thoughts of the poetry, the voice and singing is soft and unobtrusive. Hope we will get the chance to get more of those kind of compositions!
I think it's dope. It has a professional sound and quality production. The song & track have presence and the lyrics & subject matter are ideal in bringing the track & song together cohesively but I think it needs to be recorded just a little bit better as far as the mixing & recording of the vocals & the overall mixing & mastering of the recording as a whole. I can hear this song on an album,a soundtrack,certain radio stations,and possibly see a video being shot or see the song being performed. It also has a coffee shop feel to it. A good early morning listen while drinking coffee or while on ones way to work or while on an afternoon drive. Good Energy!!! Keep it up!!! Drought Hustla

Hello Anibal! Very beautiful and love your lyrics! Yes, so many different avenues of poetry in the movements of life, and yes, to find the freedom to express to be to know truth, to feel the fresh air blow softly upon one's face and breathe in love. Your song is very beautiful! I love the guitar track and vocals are very pleasant to hear! I thank you Anibal for sharing your poem in song with me!! Have a beautiful day! Rachel :-)

Yet Another Fado Work - Fado As Fado Should Be
This smooth voice makes me dream from Lisboa. Me from middle Europe it reminds me on Fado. Good vocal performance. Mix is ok. Well, I would mix it a little more bright, but that is ok here. If this is your taste, well go your way.
The artist not only have a beautiful voice, he proyects his soul through the lyrics while the melody walks you to different places where everything seems to go back to those days when the world was sweet and kind. Congratulations to Anibal, this song is beautiful and the instrumentation matches it's intention perfectly.. keep it up !

I know A Good Piece When I Hear It!!
This piece has a lovely atmospheric arrangement. The opening Spanish guitar is well played and full of character. Light recording very gentle and appropriate for the song. Lovely Spanish guitar work

Hi Aníbal, First of all, your song is really nice with a good quality recording. I think the intro is too long. The beauty of this song are the words and the melancholy music. It isn't a music to dance (i Think), so 40 seconds to wait for your voice seems long. Instruments are played very well. But It's always the same melancholic ritornello. Maybe you can change the key before the end (One ton for example) or include another instrument. I said that just to bring a critique review and try to help as I can. So, your music sounds good and I loved to listen to it. Keep on working, good job !! Musically, Tony Amantini
Very nice song played extremely well this is a really good artist I heard quite a few songs of his I really like him he is not boring keep up the great work my friend and keep writing more and more songs best of luck steve from voodoo dancer

The music is nice, and I like it. I think it does have that down to earth vibe to it. I like this one a lot, and you're on your way to getting an award somewhere . Keep producing beat work like this I love the lead guitar, and keep your touch on it. This is unique and original. I think this is a hit for sure. Nice one! By the music you can tell that you are passionate about your work as every artist should be. Never give up and dreams and bigger things will follow! Maybe we can collab one day! PEACE!

I know about a singer songwriter, who really raises the qualitybar on numberonemusic. Another great moody song with great melodies, nice rythm. Neither the vocals nor the lyrics are bad, but according to me it is the rest that really makes the song stand out.
