Romance features the usual smooth, well-crafted pop ear candy from Luis Miguel, earnestly sung over strings and polite Latin rhythms. This may be a concept CD: each tune title is preceded by a year, which one assumes refers to its year of composition or original release. There are printed lyrics, albeit in a totally different song order, and no liner notes explain what listeners are to make of this presentation. Ultimately, it doesn't matter -- the title of the release says it all. ~ Janet Rosen
