Sidney Magal portrait Sidney Magal is sort of a Brazilian Tom Jones/Julio Iglesias combo... a cornball romantic singer that the ladies go nuts for... Now, maybe you thought Roberto Carlos already had that gig, but believe me, Magal is so, so much worse. Okay, I admit, I haven't actually heard that much of his stuff, but what I have heard has made me live in fear. It might be a while before I dig any deeper with this one...

Discography - Albums

Sidney Magal "Sidney Magal" (Polydor, 1976) (LP)
Lavish, outlandish pop in the maudlin "brega" ("schmaltzy") pop ballad style. It's way over the top... and not in a good way. Mostly it just sounds terribly busy and overwrought, bad commercial rock that skirts at the edges of being funky, but is firmly rooted in florid schmaltz. Paulo Coelho and Antonio Carlos are among the more noteworthy songwriters whose material Magal covers.
