AllMusic Review by

The soundtrack to Indecent Proposal is comprised entirely of love songs, as that is of course the focus of the movie. To some, the album may actually be a little too soft, due to the never-ending nature of the songs: all soft pop. There are some notable tracks, however. Veteran writer Graham Gouldman contributed "I'm Not in Love" for the Pretenders' usage. Seal contributed "Out of the Window," which follows in Seal's general range: soft, yet with a usable beat. Disco diva Patrice Rushen produced "The Nearness of You," a soft jazz vocal from Sheena Easton. Finally, Roy Orbison sings "A Love So Beautiful" to end the album, a wonderful showcase of his ability to escape the hillbilly genre. All in all, if soft pop is what the listener is looking for, Indecent Proposal may not be a bad choice.
