Os Mutantes's third album finds them growing both more sophisticated and, at times, sillier. The funky "Ando Meio Desligado" ("I Walk Disconnected," a love song full of pot-influenced imagery) gives the record its subtitle. Along with "Quem Tem Medo de Brincar de Amor" and the instrumental "Oh! Mulher Infiel," it shows the group becoming more comfortable with the harder-rocking side of its music. Other highlights of this often brilliant record include the gorgeous "Desculpe, Baby," the anthemic chant "Haleluia," and a Zappa-style doo-wop parody, "Hey Boy." --Rickey Wright

"This record is really something else. I'm not going to repeat every word written in the early reviews, they're all right in my opinion, but as a brazilian and born ten minute far from their neighborhood, I feel the duty to tell you, just for the most curious, that there were no drugs in this specific moment (1970). Ya, this extremely psychedelic and transcendent album was written and played with no external influence!!! Genious stuff!!!"

"This record marks the transition of the band from their psychedelic Sgt.Pepper's-like sound of their early years into the sound of the 70's, heavier and more complex. The band would end up doing prog-rock in the late 70's and the first signs of it can be seen in a couple of songs. Let me correct the translation of the title: "Ando meio Desligado" means "I've been a little disconected", but the band's English version for the title song, present in the album Technicolor, is "I've been a little spaced out", showing what the original title really meant. The highest moment of this record is the hilarious mockery of Janis Joplin "O meu refrigerador nao funciona" ("My refrigerator doesn't work"). Check it out!"
