"ENVY" (1984), "GREED" (1988), "LUST" (1991). What an ambitious set of album titles! The Ambitious Lovers consisted of Arto Lindsay on guitars and Peter Scherer on various keyboards. The two musicians miraculously created full-bodied powerhouse pop music. Their music displayed both disregard and respect for pop traditions.
Alternating ungracefully between sweet, traditional Brazilian music, raunchy noise rock, and straight-ahead power pop, these 3 albums feature above all else solid compositions. These guys were in no hurry, as evidenced by the gaps between releases of what was obviously a planned trilogy. Carefully crafted, with just the right touch of spontaneity.
"Lust" is the easiest to find; all three are excellent.
