Eric Carmen is the fifth album by rock and roll musician Eric Carmen. It was also his second self-titled LP after the 1975 album of the same name.

The album spent ten weeks on the U.S. Billboard album charts and reached its peak position of #128 in early March 1985.[2] It contained one Top 40 hit single, "I Wanna Hear It from Your Lips," which peaked at #35 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the same month.[3] The song was also a medium adult contemporary hit in both the United States (#10) and Canada (#17). "Spotlight" was featured as the B side of the 45 RPM.

"I'm Through With Love" was a minor follow-up hit in the U.S., reaching #87 on Billboard.[1]

In 1985, country singer Louise Mandrell covered "Maybe My Baby." Her version reached #8 on the U.S. Country singles chart.
