AllMusic Review by

Simone's usual romanticism is heard on this album. Denser facets of the chosen repertoire are neglected in favor of a direct communication based in the sentimental drive. With the same sensuality and emotionalism, she performs songs very different in nature, like the dramatic "Mar E Lua" (Chico Buarque), the autobiographic "Canções E Momentos" (Milton Nascimento/Fernando Brant), the activist "Sangrando" (Gonzaguinha), the ecological "Amor de Índio," the profound "Ela E Eu" (Caetano Veloso), and others. It didn't hinder her from scoring a hit with the lachrymose "Iolanda" (Pablo Milanez/Chico Buarque). Simone is a good singer and appeals to many, but, in artistic terms, is a bit one-sided on this album.
