  1. A brilliant shot of Veloso the pop composer.
  2. Ce is Caetano Veloso's 40th album—and the first in many years to make the hairs on the back of one's neck stand up.
  3. Entertainment Weekly
    What transforms this set into more than antsy retro guitar rock is Veloso's supple vocals and stylistic experimentation. [26 Jan 2007, p.73]
  4. Billboard
    The disc spotlights Veloso blasting off with raw, beat-driven fuel in the company of a band of youngsters who animate and invigorate him. [27 Jan 2007]
  5. Blender
    Joyous and limber. [Mar 2007, p.136]
  6. The New York Times
    He’s still singing with his usual soft, focused concentration, and in the rough textures and gaping silences of the band are strong melodies that point back to his simpler records from the mid-’70s, like “Qualquer Coisa” and “Joia.” Embedded in it too are some of Mr. Veloso’s best lyrics of the last 20 years. [22 Jan 2007]
  7. The freshness of the arrangements appeals throughout.
  8. Veloso's voice and songs are newly elastic, inspired by the economy and daring of the trio of electric guitar, bass, and drums that accompanies his acoustic pluck.
  9. The brightest, weirdest spots—lags are around but ultimately forgivable—are thrilling.
  10. It is quite elegant in its clarity and cleanliness.
  11. Ce is an enjoyable, finely crafted, and elegantly executed album, but at the same time very far from Caetano's best.
