From the first solo album by Vanessa Rangel, the song "Palpite" became the most played on São Paulo's radios soon after the release, having been included in a major TV soap opera. Rangel is basically a competent singer with a romantic bent in the contemporary pop arrangements. Not a deeply Brazilian-rooted interpreter, Rangel wrote most of the tunes, including "Palpite." The album invests in danceable/percussive tunes like "De Dentro do Carro," but it also includes delicate drum-less ballads like "Tá Em Mim." Rangel disencumbers herself adequately of the task of presenting her material with her good intonation, even if her expression is better suited for romantic ballads than for swinging tunes. A pleasant surprise is the inclusion of Cartola's "Acontece," where she accompanied herself at the violão (acoustic guitar).
