AllMusic Review by

While not a collection of Perry Como's greatest hits (though "Hoop-Dee-Doo," "'A' You're Adorable," "If," and "Some Enchanted Evening" are all included), The Man Who Invented Casual focuses more on the singer's take on show tunes and his work with the Fontane Sisters. Four songs from Call Me Madam ("Marrying for Love," "You're Just in Love," "The Best Thing for You," and "It's a Lovely Day Today") are found here, as well as some from South Pacific (of course), Too Much Harmony, and Guys and Dolls. All in all, The Man Who Invented Casual is a relaxed, gentle, lighthearted collection of Como tunes that displays his strengths well.
