This is one of my favorite side two's. There are three songs on side two that make it a perfect end-of-day listen. Hopeless Romantic may be too sappy for some, but I like the simplicity of it and the attitude that someone can still believe in true love. Then, of course, At This Moment comes on strong as the second song and plays the way it should without the radio cut of the ending. Finally, Here Comes The Dawn features a beautiful piano intro, and despite the 'no sleep last night' allows for the facing of a new day. I fondly remember placing this album on the turntable as the last listen of the day and falling asleep content. To be honest, I probably couldn't even hum one of the songs on side one, but I don't care. The low price of this album and the high quality of side two make it a steal!
