AllMusic Review by

For lovers, ex-lovers, and the brokenhearted, The Romantic features mature smooth sounds eloquently done by Donny Gerrard. This is romance, sweet and bitter, on a higher plane. He emulates Nat "King" Cole on "Very Thought of You" and "I Love You for Sentimental Reasons." A re-recording of "Wildflower," a song he led as a member of Skylark, is as cloying and as passionate as the original. Candlelight renditions of Barbara Lewis' "Baby I'm Yours," "Nothing in Common," "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye," and "Time Was" are alone worth the price of this CD. Welcome back, Donny.
