Nicole Atkins – “Mondo Amore” (2011, Razor & Tie)

My review of Mondo Amore, by Nicole Atkins, is up at Stereo Subversion!

Mondo Amore is one of those difficult albums to review on just a few listens. There’s such a great deal of musical punch packed into a short album that it’s easy to come to regrettable snap opinions. The first time through the mix of styles and blend of sonic comparisons can make the album seem rushed or unfocused, but the album rewards patience. The more you hear it the harder it will become to turn it off, while becoming easier to see how strong Atkins’ artistic vision truly is.
