AllMusic Review by

Rhino Records celebrates the most Hallmark of holidays with Let the Music Set the Mood: Rhino Gives Love for Valentine's Day 2000, a 19-track promotional compilation of love songs from across the spectrum of popular music. Served up in a greeting card-styled package, the disc spans a considerable amount of musical and romantic ground, ranging from the classical stylings of Debussy's Clair de Lune, to the samba-inspired sexiness of Dusty Springfield's "The Look of Love" and from the sappy soft pop of Olivia Newton-John's "I Honestly Love You" to the knuckle-dragging butt-rock of Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love" -- but then, as Mickey & Sylvia sagely noted, "Love is strange."
