AllMusic Review by

Recorded after two years of silence motivated by his separation, on this album, Paulinho da Viola celebrates the return of his wife with an elegy to nature ("Amor à Natureza," "Jaqueira da Portela," "Chuva"), well before it became fashionable to talk about ecology (the LP was originally released in 1975). Remastered at Abbey Road studios, it includes the bonus track "Pecado Capital" (theme of the homonymous major soap opera). Other important songs here are the hit "Argumento," criticizing the commercialism in samba, and "Deixa Rolar," sample of the rare jewels of the late Sidney Miller.
