AllMusic Review by

After the first album, which pointed in a MPB direction, the pop singer/composer Klébi surrendered herself to the ticks of contemporary production. In "O Que Me Importa," she reveals her potential as a MPB singer in a warm rendition for the doleful song. The original "Algo" also reflects her fitting more sincerely in an MPB setting. In the other arrangements, the aggressiveness of the pop drumming, samplers, and sequencers get in her way. "Mega Maloca Manhosa" brings northeastern Brazilian music as world music references through the percussion of Marcos Suzano (triangle) and Dominguinhos' accordion. The album is appealing for its content, but the form would push away less contemporary ears.
