"OK, I'm a Gino fan. I remember being a kid and the radio playing People Gotta Move while I shot hoops in the driveway. And then in college a friend saw my Gino albums (1978) and excitedly announced he had an extra ticket to Gino's concert in Atlanta. Wow!!! Gino Vannelli music has earned a permenant place in my library. There's a couple that sit dusty in the back. Yonder Tree is not one of them. And neither is this work. Slow Love may well be Gino's best. It is a subtle work, and it's possibly his most innovative. His maturity comes to rest on a wonderful, engaging piece of work. The most delicate and intricate pieces blend with Gino's voice to make a deliciously rich and emotionally deep musical experience. You get the sense of carefully constructed restrain and discipline practiced with a love and passion. And resulting in a very intimate work. Some other reviews here talk about the particular tracks. I'm more interested in making the point that when your musical tastes become refined there is Gino. Like no other, able to bring you an experience you didn't imagine existed. There's Gino. And Slow Love is absolutely the best. It stands alone. Timeless."
Gino delivers another solid album!!!!!

"Gino is getting older as you can hear on this new gem. The warmth is still there and emotional feeling that he brings to his music. I have been a Gino Vannelli fan since the very first album "Crazy Life" and hearing many different Gino recordings through his 30 years in the business and you hear a musician who has matured in his life. Songs I liked, Lost And Found, Down With Love(which is also found on his album, "Big Dreamers Never Sleep"), and "A Woman Crossed In Love". Pick it up, and enjoy!!!!!!"

"The songs on this album are mini masterpieces that explore the enigmatic and emotional experiences of deeply loving another. The title track, "Slow Love" speaks to an appreciation of the fullness and richness of a love, that despite relationship challenges along the way, like a fine wine...just gets better with age. The rest of the songs are stories about life challenges, high and low moments, emotions and feelings that so often influence the outcome of love's journey.

I like the title tract very is a great slow jam dance number. But these six songs are my very favorites: "A Woman Crossed in Love", about the "catch 22" of living up to committments to trust, truth, and honesty, when issues of infidelity are involved. "Down with Love" which likens love to a serious medical affliction. It is also a remake of an uptempo synth version from the "Big Dreamers.." album. This funky, jazzed, remake is soooooo superior to the original. When I bought this CD it was quite a while before I even realized that this version was that same song.

The damage verbal conflicts cause in relationships is explored in "Words Can Kill"; "Lost and Found" extols the power of love to heal and inspire; "Oh My It's a Miracle" rhapsodizes the sheer joy of loving; and the uptempo, jazzed, "Alive by Science" uses wry, witty lyrics to talk about a very serious subject...loving someone enough in the face of death to be able to let them go.

Even though they are not favorite songs, "Tierras De Amores Y Sombras" (a latin guitar serenade about passion and love), "Cry Baby" (love gone terribly wrong), and "Constantly Constantine" (lovesickness to the point of self-destruction), are so terrific I never fast forward. There is no really bad song on this CD.

Gino's magical music, and silky, sensual, sometimes sassy vocals, tell stories about the ebb and flow and nuance of love. The result is an album that engages the listener to comtemplate, feel, and explore the richness of their own experiences. This wonderful album is indeed a little miracle and misses being my very favorite Gino masterpiece by a whisker.
