"The " Girl from Ipanema " again, with the same itty-bitty voice and deliberate nonexpressiveness . She is not without some charm in the Portuguese songs, especially Agua de Beber, where composer-guitarist Jobim joins her in some momentarily animated scat duos; but in most of the English selections, except perhaps for Jobim's "Photograph" and "How Insensitive", there just isn't much of any real substance - or personality either ."--High Fidelity (1955)
