"I love Gal Costa but HATE this album. I am deeply disturbed that one of my favorite Brazilian singers could sink to such lows as employing these abysmal Holiday Inn Lounge-style cheesy synthesized keyboards. The only track even remotely listenable is #6, Bem-Bom. I'm going to make ever effort to return this CD, and if I can't get a refund, I'm going to do my civic duty of destroying it, because to allow it to circulate would be the height of cruelty."
Great diversity of songs with this album!!

"I've read the previous review, and had to comment. I just recently procured this CD, and I'm glad the previous writer didn't burn my copy! I've listened to Gal Costa for over 20 years. This particular album shows some real depth. Granted, she shows a different singing style in some of the songs. But she has some real sassy stuff in here as well. Overall, her personality really comes out in Cabelo. Her rendition of Topazio is sung with enough longing emotion that I've played it many times just to try to understand the many emotions she put into it. Quem te viu, Quem te ve is one of the better samba introductions anyone could get! I give this album a 5 star rating overall, and would recommend it to anyone from the neophyte listener to the long-time fan of Gal!"
