AllMusic Review by

Ah, you've got to love simple Italian pop. And with his artfully artless hair and smoldering looks, DeMarinis definitely plays the part of the pop idol. However, he has some talent to back it all up, both as a singer and as a writer -- he co-wrote all 11 songs here. There's nothing startling on the record, just some moderately catchy pop, well sung, but somewhat dated by American standards. However, that's not necessarily a bad thing, because it keeps DeMarinis out of the trap of sounding too hip -- a sound that will be out of fashion in a few months anyway. In fact, it's almost time for his style to return to fashion....really, there's nothing wrong with this music at all, it's just not especially distinctive, with no song standing out from the pack, and clocking in at less than 40 minutes, not especially good value for money.
