AllMusic Review by

The first album by the musician/composer Celso Fonseca and the hitmaker Ronaldo Bastos, one of the preferred lyricists by Milton Nascimento -- only songs written by the duo are included. The album is very warm in its arrangements, with a straightforward violão sometimes being joined by Jacques Morelenbaum's cello and sparse string sections. "Sorte" was a hit in the voice of Gal Costa. The mysterious and beautiful "Flor Lunar" also had success. The focus of the album is romantic love, but there is some room to talk about the samba in the Estácio hill in the beautiful samba "O Poeta do Estácio." Delicate renditions for inventive lyrics/songs.
