AllMusic Review by

This is the opening album of singer Ana Carolina. Her beautiful contralto voice (still heavily inspired by Zélia Duncan's) will benefit from experience and artistic sincerity after the initial challenge of establishing herself in a competitive profession. The album opens with a funk-samba. Following is "Alguém Me Disse," an old samba jewel by Evaldo Gouveia and Jair Amorim, losing here its delicacy and the harmonic subtlety in the aggressive rock groove. Another pretense renovation that is, in fact, a violation is the bellicose rock interpretation for the tender "Retrato Em Branco E Preto" ("Zingaro," Chico Buarque/Tom Jobim). Among funk/rock/pop/ballad grooves with no bigger interest, including her originals, the pop/rock "Garganta" scored a hit. The best track is the almost genuine coco "Armazém" by her. The album appeals to pop listeners but doesn't represent a breakthrough.
