After severing ties with Columbia Records and splitting up with her then-boyfriend, Nicole Atkins channeled her frustration into Mondo Amore, a breakup record that furthers her self-described "pop-noir" sound. The follow-up to her 2007 debut, Mondo Amore doubles as Atkins' first release for Razor & Tie, with whom she partnered in the wake of the Columbia split. ~ Andrew Leahey
