AllMusic Review by

It took Viana five years to leave Sagrado because of his successful solo career. With a lot of invited musicians from other prog rock bands such as Angra (André Matos), Dogma, Saecula Saeculorum, and old members of Sagrado Coração da Terra, a big studio experience (all CDs were recorded in their own studio), and carefully constructed graphics, Marcus Viana brought Sagrado back to the Brazilian progressive rock scene by releasing its fifth work; the album mixes pop hits with prog rock. "Clair de Lune" (a version of the Debussy classic) and a progressive arrangement of the song "Terra" (Caetano Veloso) are the high points of this CD. Some tracks with English lyrics are present.
