Review scores
AllMusic4/5 stars[1]

In a retrospective review for AllMusic, critic Justin Kantor wrote of the album, "the overall sound is very solid with an adept mixture of live instrumentation and synthesizers. With King's bold vocals atop them, the songs on So Romantic make it one of her strongest '80s albums."[1]
