AllMusic Review by

Universal Music TV’s 2010 compilation That’s Amore is a solid double-disc collection of 40 of Dean Martin’s love songs -- both swaying and swinging -- from throughout his career but with an emphasis on his ‘60s and early-‘70s recordings for Reprise, including bunches of covers of country and pop hits like “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” “The Birds and the Bees,” “Gentle on My Mind,” “For Once in My Life,” and “King of the Road,” which doesn’t quite fit the romantic mood of the rest of the compilation. A few stylistic hiccups like this don’t prevent That’s Amore from being a highly enjoyable sampler of Martin’s splashiest and more popular material -- perhaps not a definitive overview but surely an entertaining dose of primo Dino.
