Now that the Romantics’ ”What I Like About You” — one of the best pop songs to roll in on the ’70s New Wave — has the dubious distinction of being used in a beer commercial, its inclusion on a career compilation of this melodic garage band seems both belated and unnecessary. Other than that exciting blast of punked-up rock, What I Like About You has the Detroit quartet’s two Top 40 hits (”One in a Million” and the awful ”Talking in Your Sleep”) plus seven other album cuts, none of which was exactly crying out for reissue.
