AllMusic Review by

Quarteto Em Cy is the best female vocal quartet in Brazil. This album is a retrospective of 30 years of their career (commemorated in 1994), with hits like "A Banda" (1966), in its adequately triumphant/excited rendition coherent with a passing parade band; a doleful "Inútil Paisagem"; the naïve happiness of "O Circo" (they were one of the few to recognize the importance of Sidney Miller); "Saveiros," from the Festivais era; and so on, progressing in time until Djavan's "Sim Ou Não" (1979) and Milton Nascimento's "Idolatrada" (1980). In all the songs, their expressive vocal performances are evocatively backed by the arrangements of Oscar Castro-Neves and Luiz Cláudio Ramos and the competent execution by the supporting band.
