AllMusic Review by

This CD reissue of Profana doesn't bring a representative moment from Gal Costa. She had success with this album, with songs like Caetano Veloso's rock "Vaca Profana," along with "Atrás da Luminosidade," "Onde Está o Dinheiro" and a medley with three Northeastern composers, including the song "Cabeça Feita," from the great Jackson Do Pandeiro, with special guest Luiz Gonzaga (all these songs are in up-tempo, hot regional grooves which had already given her one of the biggest successes of her career, "Festa do Interior," from Fantasia, 1981), and also "Ave Nossa" and "Chuva de Prata" (a very kitsch tune). The album shows Costa with her splendid vocal qualities and the usual competent instrumental backing in a happy, danceable setting, but doesn't represent an especial mark in her career.
