How somebody can screw up a good idea.

"For people who know Milton and Gil this work is pure disapointment. The impression is that a smart producer came up with the idea of doing the cd, which is in principle a good one, selected some fashionable songs and allowed them to put two or three songs that are true art. The choice of Sandy and Jr for a track is perhaps the best example of this disapointment. Don't buy this cd. There is much more quality in previous work of both Gil and Milton to be disapointed with this one."
Two masters: art in full maturity and extraordinary vitality

"It is a delight to be blessed by what these two have been able to produce together now, in full maturity. For years and years I have been following the work of Gilberto Gil and Milton Nascimento. Now, in this creative and powerful meeting, they share the joy of knowing how to blend their talents without constraints, in a most generous flow. Starting with "Sebastian", in reference the Saint who protects Rio de Janeiro, they have created a song of love and reverence to this beautiful city, proposing to heal its wounds of violence and pain through love and song. This is part of a series of new compositions, with Milton's melody and Gil's words. "Duas Sanfonas" invites the new generation to come play and sing with their elders, in this song that celebrates unity and joy. "Bom Dia", a well known song by Gil and Nana Caymi, is sang in the most touching, delicate and tender way, their two unique voices blending in the most exquisite manner. "Dinamarca", a touching tribute to a loved one that has died, their longing expressed in a melodic interaction between voices and poetic words... The combination of traditional songs with new compositions, all of it offer us a display of the many facets of fluent talent and vision of these two musicians. This album expresses the joy and humbleness that is acquired only when true mastery is reached! I highly recommend you listen to it with your full attention!!!"

"Recién tengo este disco desde hace algunas horas y ya lo he escuchado unas tres veces. Se nota que la conjunción de estos dos grandes es muy prolífica. Hay calidad, buenas canciones y tradición. Cada uno respeta el espacio del otro como compositor e intérprete. Sin embargo, ojo, que no es para novatos ni gente que quiera salir bailando la primera vez que lo escucha. Este disco es para paladearlo y digerirlo, para ir gozando de a poco y descubriendo cada canción. Una joya de la música brasilera."
