AllMusic Review by

The song lineup is all over the place in terms of chronology, starting with "Holding Out for a Hero" and moving forward to Tyler's Todd Rundgren duet "Loving You Is a Dirty Job But Somebody's Gotta Do It," then backward to "It's a Heartache," forward to "No Way to Treat a Lady," etc. So the listener will figure out nothing about the evolution of her style or voice, or Jim Steinman's production, but on the plus side the sound is excellent and the 18 tracks are pretty generous, given the mid-priced cost as an import. On the minus side, there's also not a word of biographical or discographical information.
