AllMusic Review by

When it comes to matters of the heart, there's never been a singer better equipped to navigate the ins and outs of love than Frank Sinatra. His passionate-but-precise style brings multiple levels of emotion to a love song, and THE HEART OF THE MATTER finds the iconic vocalist delivering some of his best. Sinatra is well known as the king of broken-hearted balladeering, so it's no surprise that “Blues in the Night” and “In The Wee Small Hours of the Morning” smolder with sadness and forlorn regret. But the Chairman of the Board could knock jubilant love cries out of the park too, as evidenced by such tunes as “Too Marvelous For Words” and “Dancing in the Dark.”
