AllMusic Review by

Modern Loneliness is typical run-of-the-mill, mid-tempo adult pop/rock, sung with sincerity and performed competently. Carol Martini's brand of songwriting is rudimentary at best, and her lyrical schemes are at times simplistic and repetitive. But that doesn't mean there is nothing of merit to be found in these 17 tracks. On the contrary, Ms. Martini displays solid skill as a pop songwriter with a genuine knack for the art. "There's Been a Change" and "Please Make the World Go Away" are two compositions that actually show a glimmer of potential. Problem is, the rest of the album doesn't quite deliver on the promise.
