The delicate and smooth Brazilian pop of Chico Buarque is celebrated on Focus, a best-of compilation released in 1999. Filled with little pop gems sung in the uniquely childlike voice of Buarque, the songs here provide a good picture of the various sides of his performances. Anyone looking to hear him for the first time should definitely start here; this covers most of his important material and gives a good idea of what his music generally sounds like. ~ Bradley Torreano
