Castro is one of the recent songwriting talents to emerge in Brazil in recent years alongside Zeca Balero and Marcelo Camelo of Los Hermanos. On this self-titled CD, he brings influences from Rio de Janeiro samba, Tropicalia and others, mixing them with more modern electronic paraphernalia. The result is a mixed bag that sometimes sounds brilliant and other times is just chaotic. For instance, "Silencio No Brooklyn"(Silence in Brooklyn)” has a nice samba groove that blends well with the Hammond organ and the extraneous sound effects. "Stereo," however, tries a bit too hard to channel the experimentalism of Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil from the ’60s. "Sempre aos Domingos" (Always on Sunday, co-written with Lulu Santos) is one of the album's best moments with its clever guitar licks and relaxed vocals. "Depois da Festa" ("After The Party," co-written with Nelson Motta) is a surprise—the song has a more laid-back feel until the heavy instrumental bridge catches the listener unaware.
