Singing with the depth and flair of Matt Monroe, Philippine singer Nonoy Zuniga croons his way through 1982's Much More with taste and style. The album's 11 middle-of-the-road songs are pleasant and easy on the ears, but they also have depth. All of the songs are by local composers, and most of the songs were composed by Willy Cruz (Nonoy Zuniga doesn't compose). The opening "Love Without Time" sets the tone of the album immediately, and Nonoy Zuniga sounds cool and calm, crooning the pretty melody as though he was Matt Monroe's soulmate. Nonoy Zuniga has a charming voice and sounds comfortable and relaxed throughout the album. On the seductive "Now That You're Gone," Nonoy Zuniga affects a Frank Sinatra-like stance, and one can imagine Nonoy Zuniga walking down a dimly lit alley, jacket slung over his shoulder, casting a sideways glance every so often. There are some pleasant moments on this pleasant album.
