    Mondo Amore may work best as a companion piece to Neptune City--the fast 'n' furious yang to that album's soft, pleasant yin--but it's got more than enough raw emotion to hold its own weight.

    Her brush with the big boys only appears to have strengthen her resolve on a collection of fierce country rockers. [Apr 2011, p.75]

    Effortlessly blending rock, blues, country and soul, Atkins has delivered on Mondo Amore with a collection of songs that invites you into her world.

    Mondo is sturdy, well-arranged pop that old crooners and hipster blues brothers alike can claim as theirs.

    It is sufficiently gritty to at least keep her in the game. [May 2011, p.126]
  6. 60
    At times, Amore sounds like a modern Goth-rock romantic tragedy, full of heartbreak and despair, but the pain Atkins expresses in her lyrics ultimately results in the album's most pleasurable moments.
  7. 50
    A much rawer, more satisfying record than its predecessor, Mondo Amore follows Atkins as she rediscovers herself through a wide palette of musical influences.
