Romeo Unchained

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Heralded by many as Tonio K.'s greatest release, this record does not age well, being rich in many trendy 1980s gimmicks electric drums and glossy synthesizer work. It is also the least representative of his intellectual style, nearly all the songs being centered around the subject of relationships. Not a bad idea for a concept album but for the over-abundance of similar subject matter.
