AllMusic Review by

Flávio Paiva is a visual artist revealed as an inspired new lyricist. In this album written with several partners, he evidences an unusual taste for the choice of arrangements, completely freed from commercial considerations. Acoustic MPB songs and Brazilian folkloric-inspired songs coexist with a couple of electric rock tunes in a sincere and touching document. The album, competently arranged and executed, resents from the inexperience of some interpreters (almost all novices, Mona Gadelha excluded), but still is a sample of good Brazilian music.
