CD Reviews

Sappy and sharp by turns
Randy Goldberg | Yonkers, NY, USA | 01/26/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This solo effort by half of Romanovsky and Phillips (the "Princes of Gay Pop") is a journey through a gay man's life. Sassy and catty at times, pulling at the heart strings at others, this is a wonderful collection of tunes, albeit a bit saccharine."The Telephone Company Loves Me" expresses clearly the heartbreak of long-distance relationships. "Sacrifices" brings the relationship right down to the ground - don't give me flights of Cupids, give me cash! On the other hand, "When I Hear A Love Song" goes on to say "...I think of you." He can be mushy, too.In concert, R&P bill "I Like To Polka" as their "first dance song." It's an amusing summary of gay fads. "Baby, Take Advantage Of Me" is a rolling raggish number which invites the listener to do just that. If the singer could get the attention of the perfect man, well, that would just be "The Perfect Crime". "One For You, One For Me" details the horror of breaking up - who gets to keep which friends?!? One almost suspects that this was written with Paul Phillips in mind. On the other hand, "A Song In My Heart" might also have been written for Paul, although, perhaps, at a later stage in their breakup. In the end, "These Things" summarizes the valuable moments in a life."
