AllMusic Review by

Parole's release was one of the best of what has, admittedly, not been a particularly inspiring period for zouk. It's mellow but not soupy, with a nice Creole tinge to some of the melodies, a lot of Haitian influence (what goes round comes round), and such passing felicities as a neat trumpet solo. It's evidence that zouk's recent pop orientation doesn't necessarily mean triviality.
