CD Cesaria [Csaria vora] 
Q (12/96, pp.126-131) - "...bolstered by comparisons to Edith Piaf and Billie Holiday, she has lost none of the warmth and tenderness or taste for folksy material with a wistful, Mediterranean feel....will bring a lump to the dryest throat."Down Beat (11/95, p.72) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good - Excellent - "...Evora, the queen of morna, bears comparison with Billie Holiday or Edith Piaf, her warm, dusky contralto brimming with melancholy nostalgia as she croons the Creole poetry of Cape Verde's finest composers..."Dirty Linen (2-3/96, p.77) - "...Evora's voice is rich and mellow, and sometimes even dreamy...The styles range from the uptempo...to the quiet...But throughout, Evora sings in a way that evokes both power and vulnerability, often both in the same breath."New York Times (Publisher) (1/6/96, p.C16) - Included on Neil Strauss' list of the Top 10 Albums of `95 - "Somewhere on the spectrum between Sade and Billie Holiday sits Ms. Evora..."
CD Caf Atlantico [Csaria vora] 
Rolling Stone (8/5/99, p.67) - 3 1/2 stars (out of 5) - "...[ushers] Evora into atypically bright moods....[She] really only sings two ways: well or magnificiently."Q (7/99, pp.110-2) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...a lilting, mellow collection, ranging from the languorous...to the lighthearted....the crisp arrangements combined with her dry delivery ensure a lack of sentimentality."CMJ (1/10/00, p.25) - Included in CMJ's "New World '99 Top 5" - "...a beautiful, finely wrought album that shows exactly why she's so popular..."Mojo (Publisher) (1/00, p.31) - Ranked #16 in Mojo Magazine's "Best of 1999."
CD Mar Azul [Csaria vora] 
Rolling Stone (8/5/99, p.67) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...one of several albums from which Evora...has acquired her glittering international reputation..."Entertainment Weekly (3/12/99, p.70) - "...a package of mellifluous Portuguese songs representing the romance of her native Sao Vicente. Evora's gift for conveying vulnerablity across language and culture is astonishing. Like Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday, she evokes thoughts of hearts won and lost." - Rating A-Dirty Linen (8-9/99, p.68) - "...glitters with gorgeous and evocative songs of longing and regret....places [Evora's] rich pipes over more traditional acoustic instrumentation..."
CD Miss Perfumado [Csaria vora] 
Mojo (Publisher) (9/02, p.114) - "...practically perfect."
CD Great Expectations [Original Soundtrack]
Rolling Stone (2/5/98, p.58) - 3.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...accompanying the cobblestone plots and Victorian mores of Charles Dickens, an assortment of mostly thirtyish singers wrestles with theshifting difficulties of continuing adulthood....offers some absorbing tracks..."Entertainment Weekly (1/16/98, p.71) - "...GREAT EXPECTATIONS surpasses our own lessened expectations for alt-rock movie grab bags." - Rating: B
