4.0 out of 5 stars An 80s album for the kids of the 80s 7 Dec 2009
By Markz10
Format:Audio CD
If you were there, religiously listening to the Top 40 chart show every Sunday like I did, you'll remember most if not all of these tracks.

What a refreshing change it is to find a collection of eighties hits that isn't just another bunch of the same old stuff that makes up the tracklistings of the majority of the many "hits of the 80s" compilations that have been released over the years. This is the decade as I remember it, including some of those "forgotten" hits that won't be featured on your average "Now That's What I Call The Best 80s Album In The World Ever" CD sets. There are a fair few of the "usual suspects" to be had here, for certain, but much of the listing is given over to some of those songs you'll recall hearing while listening to Tommy Vance/Bruno Brookes counting down the latest chart sounds every week when Radio 2 loaned its FM services to Radio 1 for the evening.

Think of the eighties, and of course all the popular bands will spring to mind - Culture Club, A-Ha, Wham!, Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran etc., but what about Voice of the Beehive, Alphaville, Strawberry Switchblade, Red Box, The Maisonettes and Fuzzbox? All hitmakers in their day, albeit briefly, and always overlooked in favour of the more successful acts found on most 80s collections. This set will bring back a few memories for the true eighties children, who remember this decade for more than Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Adam and the Ants and Rick Astley.

I can think of at least a hundred other gone-but-not-forgotten hits from this period in music history, so I hope they'll follow this up with another compilation, and dig even deeper into the dusty corners of the vaults!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good enough. 11 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A good cross section of the most popular tracks, only a few you would probably swap out for others. As usual, on time and as described.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great 19 Jan 2013
By FJY
Format:Audio CD
I love 80s music. I have all of the 80s albums in this collection. This was the second album that was released in the set, which I bought when it came out. I have to say, this has some good songs, some very good songs and some quite poor songs on it. I was glad to get this, because it features two of my favourite songs from the 80s, which are For America by Red Box and London Nights by London Boys, which I had been unable to find on any other album of 80s music. Those two songs were worth the price alone! However, this album also features a fair share of songs that I just did not know, which was strange for me, because I know most of the more commercial 80s music. I would say that I enjoyed perhaps half of this album and I did skip a fair few tracks, which spoilt it for me. I felt a bit disappointed with this album, because I expected it to be much better, but in the end it seemed to be a missed opportunity. I can only give this album three stars, because it has some good points, but it is very far from the best 80s album.
