This MTV live album by Jota Quest has all the trademarks of a CD designed and released with the sole purpose of bringing in as much money as possible for the record company and the band itself. There is no real artistic justification for its release, as none of the songs here brings anything new or different in comparison to the studio version. Nor does this recording document a specifically important moment of the band's development or career. To make things worse, the sound quality is rather poor and the music is sometimes nearly drowned by the screams and noise from the teenage crowd. At best this CD could work as a "best-of" collection for the band, as all of Jota Quest's hits, including their cover of Hyldon's beautiful "As Dores do Mundo," are represented on it. Otherwise this album should be of interest for the die-hard fans of the group only.
