Eric Carmen [1984]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mike DeGagne
Eric Carmen's second self-titled album (his first came in 1975 ) sinks deep into the love-song quagmire without any attempts at freeing itself.

Although it was his first album after signing with Geffen, it only went as high as number 128 on the charts, with the second single, "I'm Through With Love," peaking at number 87. Three years after Eric Carmen was released, he showed that could bustle things up a bit with "Hungry Eyes" from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, the song that gave him his first Top Ten single of the decade.
