AllMusic Review by

In this album, Djavan had two hits, "Nem Um Dia" and Jobim's "Correnteza." Other good points on the release are the ternary blues "Sêca" interpreted in a Brazilian way, the ballad "Não Deu...," the sambas "Deixa O Sol Sair," "Coração Leviano" (Paulinho da Viola), the soothing "Cordilheira," and "Malásia," with exciting alternated time signatures. Excellent musicians on a non-exceptional album in which Djavan keeps his high compositional/performing style.
