AllMusic Review by

A slower, more meditative album by the pop/rock artist Marina Lima, who always bet on the dance tracks. She opens reciting Caetano Veloso's "Ela E Eu." "Grávida"'s lyrics, by Arnaldo Antunes, have a most daring approach, a rare moment of expressivity. "Criança," with its weak and corny lyrics, is just a pretext for the dance groove. "Não Estou Bem Certa" has good melodies and polemic lyrics evidencing a bisexual pursuit. "O Meu Sim" is a highlight, a beautiful guitar ballad with some anguish in it. But the big hit was "Acontecimentos," another slow, sensitive, and melodic ballad with romantic lyrics. The upbeat "E Acho Que Não Sou Só Eu" and "Pode Ser O Que For" and the slower "Serei Feliz" again are suited for the dance crowd.
