Don't view Rhino's Chicken Soup for the Couple's Soul as part of the pop-culture psychology series, where these duets are a balm for the mildly troubled soul. Instead, look at it as a collection of soft romantic duets from the '70s and '80s, and it's highly engaging. Unlike many of these kind of collections, there's not really any missteps (even if some songs are better than others), and it's hard to imagine a collection of adult contemporary duets being much stronger than this (although, at four songs, it's easy to imagine one a little longer). Nothing very unusual here, but it's satisfying all the same.
