Editorial Reviews

Product Description

It s been a tumultuous three years since the release of Nicole
Atkins acclaimed 2007 debut, Neptune City, but the wait has
proved worth it. Mondo Amore is a courageous, provocative work,
fraught with dramatic tension, sweeping emotions, and musical
ambition, with Atkins remarkable voice commanding attention at
the forefront. Daytrotter described Atkins recent session as a
pretty soundtrack to violent waters, which the New Jersey-born
singer/songwriter sees as a spot-on portrayal of the album itself.
On Mondo Amore, Atkins goal was to create a more volatile sound
than she had previously attempted, a sonic approach akin to such
influences as Scott Walker and Nick Cave, while also touching on
longtime inspirations like the blues and classic 60s psychedelic rock.
As its all-encompassing title suggests, Mondo Amore is a big, bold
collection, a grandly romantic song cycle fraught with all the
passion, anger, tenderness and devotion of Atkins own
extraordinary heart.

Review

Darkly laced, almost surrealistic songs and her soaring, dramatically powerful voice. --The New York Times 2/9/11

Nicole Atkins' second album is an exercise in what you might call brunch blues: Dreamy, vaguely melancholic, thoroughly pleasant. The New Jersey-born singer-songwriter has a forceful and unfussy singing style that brings welcome drama to sleepy Fifties throwbacks like "This Is for Love" and rises to a wail on more agitated, roots-rock-inflected numbers like "Vultures" and "You Come to Me." Atkins' lyrics describe insatiable wanderlust and the travails of mixing up with no-good dudes she falls for one on "Cry Cry Cry" and offers others hyperspecific advice on "Hotel Plaster." "Don't shake the change out of your pockets in the boudoir," she instructs. Noted! --Rolling Stone 2/8/11

Nicole Atkins is the kind of classic pop singer who could have been a megastar at any point except the last five years. She has a huge, rangy voice flecked with soul that sounds great atop broken-bottle slide blues ( My Baby Don t Lie ), wine-sloppy piano ballads ( Hotel Plaster ) and even an unexpected stab at X-inspired surf punk ( You Come to Me ). Maybe the handmade breadth and skill of Mondo Amore can catch a commercial slow burn like that of her onetime tourmates the Black Keys. But it s rough out there for a firecracker female singer for whom Auto-Tune is merely what you do to your pink Cadillac every 3,000 miles. Neko Case is probably the best reference point here, and Atkins band nails the same kind of grain-silo reverb and guitar tremolo that give tunes such as This Is for Love their weight. But she s at her best atop the tear-blotted strings of War Is Hell, which give her room to sing for the rafters and bend the song into unexpected chord changes. There isn t a clear standout single, but Mondo is sturdy, well-arranged pop that old crooners and hipster blues brothers alike can claim as theirs.-- August Brown
