Speed Ballads is the by the band Republica. Released in , the album was the follow-up to Republica's self-titled debut album and reached #37 on the UK Album Charts. The album never received a release in the United States.

The album spawned only one single, "From Rush Hour With Love". It achieved modest success, peaking at #20 on the UK Singles chart but spent only three weeks on the chart. The follow-up single, "Try Anything", received only limited release, due to the bankruptcy and closure of Deconstruction Records, the group's label.

The album was met with mixed reviews from contemporary music critics. AllMusic's Jason Damas felt that the album "exhibits some remarkable growth" over its predecessor, calling the album "far more diverse" and highlighting "Try Everything," "From Rush Hour with Love," and "Fading of the Man" as choice cuts.
