AllMusic Review by

Globe quickly bounced back from the bland Love Again with Relation, coming only nine months later and bolstered by a set of four singles all released in the same month. Like their first album, Relation is overshadowed by its singles. "Wanna Be a Dreammaker" comes on like a cute younger sister really into Nine Inch Nails, but features one of their best choruses. "Sa.Yo.Na.Ra" borrows its sound from Toto's "Hold the Line," certainly one of the oddest decisions the group's made. "Sweetheart" is a drum'n'bass battle between Marc's grumble and an Arabian verse from Keiko. "Perfume of Love" is the epic ballad. The rest of the album is listenable, and the final track, "Illusion," brings the album to its grand close.
