All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
A sampling of the early recordings of Caetano Veloso, who broke into the Brazilian music scene on the wings of Tropicalia, this winning anthology covers a bewildering variety of styles which the soft-spoken firebrand had at his command. There is pure bouncy Brazilian pop "Beleza Pura", romantic bossa nova "Coisa Mais Linda", a sprouting Hawaiian guitar in the background "Muito", a repetitive folk flavor that would pop up again in his career "O Leaozinho", light-as-a-feather electro pop "Podres Poderes", songs that end up in the air "Menino do Rio", and '60s Top 40 rock with a North American accent "Supercabana", to name but a few.
