Romantic Hits of the '80s is a skimpy and cheap-looking compilation of adult contemporary favorites that seemingly picks ten tracks within that realm at random. Sheriff's "When I'm With You," Air Supply's "Just as I Am," Exposé's "Seasons Change," Billy Vera & the Beaters' "At This Moment," Eric Carmen's "Make Me Lose Control," and Melissa Manchester's "Walk on By" make up half of the content. Just about everything here was a major hit, but it's a very scattered selection that only appeals to those who are in need of several of the songs. There are several like-minded compilations floating around that have more to offer.
