2 stars I make this review based on the international release of the album, as the brazilian version is quite different.

As a fan of the Mutantes earlier works, with Rita Lee and Arnaldo Baptista, I was kind of scarred of this new album, since only Sérgio Dias (Arnaldo's brother) remains of the 3 original Mutantes. Sérgio teamed up with Tom Zé, an brazilian musician know for his creative/confused works.

Indeed the album was not up to the older releases. But for a different reason than expected. There are many gret ideias and songs, like Querida, Querida, but it looks like Sérgio was pressed to go to strudio before he was ready, and them tried to compesate it later. ALL of the songs are over-produced and MUCH longer that they should. They all start really well, go on nicelly, but them you are stuck in a endless loop of the same ideia, with no evolution or change of pace, searching for the "next track" button.

It's a shame, as you can see great ideas burried in an over-produced album, that given more time , could turn to an album worthy of the tittle "Os Mutantes".

And WTF is that cover?
