Amor Louco (Portuguese for Mad Love) is the fourth studio album by Brazilian post-punk band Fellini. It was released on February 15, 1990 by now-defunct independent record label Wop-Bop Records and re-released in CD form in 2001 by another independent label, RDS. It was originally Fellini's last album, due to their break-up in the following year; however, they reunited in 2001 and released another album, Amanhã É Tarde. After his absence from the previous album, Jair Marcos returned as the guitarist, thus having Fellini's original line-up once more.

Amor Louco is characterized for the diminished "scuzzy" post-punk-esque instrumentation, instead adopting a more light-hearted style reminiscent of samba rock, bossa nova and MPB. It is also their first album to feature lyrics written in English, them being "Chico Buarque Song" and "Love Till the Morning".

The track "LSD" narrates an experience frontman Cadão Volpato had when he used lysergic acid diethylamide.[1][2][3]
