Dois (Portuguese for Two) is the second studio album by Brazilian rock band Legião Urbana. It was released in July 1986.


Release history

Because of the success of Legião Urbana's previous album, Renato Russo originally intended Dois to be a double-disc album named "Mitologia e Intuição" ("Mythology and Intuition"), that would also include some tidbits of Que País É Este, but EMI-Odeon denied the proposal, due to economic reasons.

Unlike Legião's previous album, who heavily focalized in post-punk-esque instrumentation, Dois shows a wider palette of styles and influences such as folk rock, blues and synthpop, and features the most memorable songs of the band, such as "Eduardo e Mônica", a ballad largely inspired by Bob Dylan, telling the story of youngsters in Brasília which fall in love despite having nothing in common; "Música Urbana 2", a sequel-of-sorts for an old Aborto Elétrico song (the first part of "Música Urbana" is sung by Capital Inicial); "Fábrica", an environmentalist song that would be used to open Legião's shows for many years; "Quase sem Querer"; and "Índios", that, according to Renato Russo, was written after a suicide attempt.

In 2007, the Brazilian version of the magazine Rolling Stone made a list of the 100 most revolutionary Brazilian albums, and Dois was featured in the position #21[2].

Argentine punk band Attaque 77 made a cover of "Fábrica". They would also cover another song by Legião, "Perfeição", of the album O Descobrimento do Brasil.


  • During the initial seconds of the track "Daniel na Cova dos Leões", a badly-tuned radio can be heard. Excerpts of Legião's song "Será", as well as the anthem of the Socialist International, can be faintly heard playing.
  • The name of the track "Andrea Doria" is a reference to the homonymous Italian ship that shipwrecked near the shores of New York in July 25, 1956. 51 people perished in the disaster, and many Italian paintings were lost in the sea.
  • An alternate version of the track "Química" appears in the cassette edition of the album as a bonus track.
