"Another great Romantics album. This was there third release and they tinkered with sound a bit before going back to basics with the next album, "In Heat". When it came out a friend of mine likened the more aggressive sound of this album as, "Romanitcs meet Kiss". I still think he was right. The sound is dirtier, with more punch. Fans of the band and power pop will love this...if you can still find it! Should been huge, ya know?"
Third Album Is Stuck In the Middle...

"Between their 2 sonic-defying debut albums and their pop breakthrough album "In Heat". "Strictly Personal" finds the band rocking along, oblivious to a new phenomenon called MTV and unwilling to change a thing about their delivery. This is both good and bad as the band delivers reliable Romantics standards on songs like "In The Nightime", "Spend a Little Love On Me", "She's Hot", and "Bop!". Things get dragged down into repetition on tracks like "Why'd You Leave Me" and "Can't Get Over You". There are no great Romantics tracks here, but no real bad ones either. Pick your 4 or 5 favorites and add them to your iPod playlists, then forget about the rest."
