AllMusic Review by

Millennium is a good selection of songs from Caetano Veloso's career and includes great classics like "Terra," "Sampa," "Odara," and "Trem das Cores" as well as such lesser-known but just as enjoyable gems as "Gente" and "Rai das Cores." The bulk of this compilation is comprised of songs from the '70s and '80s, but there are also five songs from the '90s. At least two of them, the insipid Latin covers "Contigo en la Distancia" and "Fina Estampa," definitely don't belong on a "best-of" compilation. But the rest of the material provides a fine sample of the magnificent work of Caetano Veloso -- one of Brazil's greatest composers and poets.
