  1. Amorino sounds like a lost soundtrack to some cool French film from the 1960s.
  2. 80
    It's saved from twee tedium by Campbell's sumptuous orchestrartions and sly wit. [Dec 2003, p.115]
  3. At its best, on songs like "Monologue for an Old True Love" or the Nancy & Lee-styled orchestral country duet with Eugene Kelly, listening to Amorino provides nearly as many musical thrills as listening to a good B&S record.
  4. Its melodic songs lack the fiery drive and urgency of rock and roll, consciously recalling an era of music of interest only to people looking for something truly vintage.
  5. A sprawling beast that's unexpectedly heavy on the instrumental front.
  6. 60
    An amibitious record. [Dec 2003, p.113]
  7. As could be expected, the production is sharp, and the song structures are tightly wound and delicately unraveled. The problem is that the effort as a whole is too slick, and its charm suffers as a result.
  8. Her breathy vocals are unsettling, her glacial detachment lazy and too often irritating.
