  • Romantic? is the sixth studio album by the English synthpop band The Human League. It was issued by Virgin Records in 1990 and was the band's first album of new material in four years. Romantic? had several producers, most notably Martin Rushent, who worked with the Human League on their biggest commercial success and had walked out of the recording sessions for its 1984 follow-up. Also producing several tracks is Mark Brydon, who would found Moloko several years later. The album signalled a low point for the band as it was ridiculed by some critics, who proclaimed the album's sound as "dated". The only significant success came from the album's first single "Heart Like a Wheel", which peaked at No. 29 in the UK singles chart and No. 32 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The second single "Soundtrack to a Generation" charted at No. 77 in the UK; the band's worst ever charting. As a result, the band's long-standing contract with Virgin Records was terminated, and they moved to East West Records to release their next album, 1995's Octopus.
