AllMusic Review by

Gilberto Gil's debut album presented him as one of the brightest young performers and composers in Brazil. Composed just a few years before tropicalia hit, stripped-down songs like the title track, "Lunik 9," and "Roda" reflect the native influence of bossa nova and samba. Though it's clear he's not yet the enthusiastic performer he would soon become, Louvação is a solid debut, packed with intriguing songs.
