AllMusic Review by

The third solo album by Zélia Duncan (influenced by Beck and Carlinhos Brown) sold 90,000 copies in the first month. After the ignored opening release (commanded by three different producers) and the hit "Catedral" (from her 1994 album Zélia Duncan), her concern here is to expose her true personality: a pop singer with a distinctive voice timbre with interest in rock and MPB ("Vou Tirar Você Do Dicionário," in spite of being a blues/funk hybrid, is the only non-original of the album, written by and with the participation of MPB composer/performer Luiz Melodia). The good news is the more direct, folk/blues approach, free from the excess of standardized keyboarding present in the first album.
