AllMusic Review by

Sony Special Products' ten-song Metal Ballads collection takes a few liberties with the genre. While hair metal mainstays like Europe ("Carrie"), Bad English ("When I See You Smile") and Warrant ("I Saw Red") fit the mold, outright pop acts such as the Bangles ("Eternal Flame" REO Speedwagon ("Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore") and Bonnie Tyler ("Total Eclipse of the Heart") should have appeared on another, more appropriately titled compilation.
