AllMusic Review by

Lenine is a pop star with plenty of exposition in Brazil. On this album (the second), one of the 100 top-selling releases in Japan, is one of his hits, "Acredite Ou Não." Lenine is a creative artist in the world vein. He tries to capture the essence of Bahia's culture and its sea fishermen's chants. Mixing a Brazilian feeling with contemporary rhythms, he expects to reach his universal synthesis. It is always curious to listen to ancient northeastern embolada rhythms topped by overdriven guitars.
