"With any acoustic album an artist takes the risk of exposing weakness, but Marcelo D2 meets the challenge with a passionate performance. He proves undeniable skill as an MC, though any listeners without abilities in Portuguese might be frustrated. High points include the danceable "Sangue Bom," (though the appearance by Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas adds nothing of value) and the pensive "1967". The low point is a duet with his son. It seems that even foreign rappers are not immune from teaming with a family member on a sappy, creatively low-rent song (think Eminem, Master P, etc). Anyone interested in the current Brasilian music scene should give this disc a try. Listen to it alfresco on a warm day and you will be treated to the experience of Rio in the winter of 2005."
