AllMusic Review by

Since the '80s, Ira! have been one of Brazil's most popular rock groups. As such, it was only a matter of time before they would be invited to record an acoustic MTV live album. Of course, the repertoire is more or less a straightforward greatest-hits cavalcade, although there are a few newly composed tracks, too. There is nothing particularly remarkable about the sound or songs as such, and the performance of the band is somewhat uninspired. There are a couple of great exceptions, though, most notably the vibrant and dramatic versions of "Dias de Luta" and "Rubro Zorro," both sizzling with pure rock energy. Those two sudden bursts of burning inspiration from the band alone make this album worthwhile.
