DiscoDigital.com gave a positive review of the album and said, "Susana Félix is a curious case in the national pop. Usually surrounded by highly respectable names, has not reached the right ears to be respected as it deserves. Susana Felix had everything to have a career as a one hit wonder with "Mais Olhos (Que Barriga)" (1999) and she had several episodes as previous participation in a project of Mafalda Veiga and various collaborations. Now with 32 years and after three albums, which has to debug the pop song but not always as regularly as desired in all subjects, 'Pulsação' recalls some of his best moments while the relaxed versions. Surrounded by names like Rafael and Pedro Nuno Gonçalves, Susana Felix hits on this record that that is your state of grace and at the same time, consolidating the status of singer respectful. In this respect, 'Pulsação' may finally get the right people that will provide due recognition. For example, "(Bem) Na Minha Mão", one of two unpublished herein, and signed by herself reveals that it is and that should be your special place: a safe song, well sung and arranged with exquisite. Neither more nor less, is to pop in all its splendor."

Qmusika gave a rating of 3.5 out of 5.
