The singer Ney Matogrosso has built a successful career around his competent performance as a sexually ambiguous character as well as his extremely well-intonated counter-tenor voice. The improbable association with Chico Buarque's repertory, marked by its serious debate on social issues, may be strange at first sight, but Matogrosso's competence, sensibility, and intensity makes this album an artistic success. Backed by excellent musicians, and with Buarque himself participating in "Até o Fim," Matogrosso covers "Construção," "Moto-contínuo," "Minha História," "Roda Viva," and other classics in an irreproachable release.
