Great compilation of 80's electronically inspired music, I enjoyed listening to this when it arrived and have played it through a few times already, its been a while since I heard some of these tracks and it was fun to rewind and listen again and remind myself how creative and unique 80's music could be.
This replaces a load of old tapes and vinyl and even adds quite a few that i didnt get first time round which is a bonus.
Some of the selections are a bit random, SigueSIgue SPutnik & MARRS-seems out of place for some reason ,I know it was 80's but a personal choice I would have left these off the list.
Music quality is ok, vinyl always sounded better anyway but you know that already :)
This gets it onto my ipod and allows me to archive / bin my old tapes and vinyl.
Highly recommended for anyone looking to discover a sub-genre of 80's music or re-discover in my case ;)
Enjoy.

This has got to be the best Ministry Of Sound collection yet. Great tracklisting with some epic 80's electronic anthems. I know all the songs on this, which makes a very pleasant change from other 80's albums with way too many fillers. There is hit after hit on this album! It brings back some great memories too.

Having bought lots of 80s compilations over the years, this one just about has everything. From the sheer majestic pleasure of 'Vienna' by Ultravox to Blondie's first foray into crossover rap 'Rapture', to lesser known but much loved tracks such as 'First Picture of You' from Lotus Eaters, to Paul Hardcastle's groundbreaking and still disturbing '19', it is hard to fault. My only sticking point? There are no tracks from ABC or Depeche Mode. Still, a musical walk through my youth. Awesome.

OMFG! Awesome collection from Ministry. I've been looking for an 80s synth album since the BBC4 Synth Britannia documentary a couple of weeks ago.
It really is all on here and takes me back. Great 12" mix of Soft Cell plus Human League, Yazoo, Gary Numan, Heaven 17, Spandau, New Order, Scritti Politti, Thompson Twins. It really seems to have the lot. Loving your work Ministry.

This is a very good selection of 80s pop/dance. There are some notables missing, for example Relax or Two Tribes and others (Don't u want me?) So I am not sure whether there were rights or permissions/licensing issues, but nevertheless there is a coherence running through each disc of the "anthology" of 80s Electronica and this set is both Nostalgia and New. The style and versions of the songs show how progressive the 80s were in terms of proliferation of pop music, which is why to the younger generations some of the music may actually seem New.

The sound quality and bass is very good and for a lot of the tracks an improvement on the sound quality of the original releases, I guess there is some remastering enhancement going on in the selection and transfer to this 3CD set.

4 stars (not 5) because of omission of some obvious classics, and also the fact that unlike most MOS CD sets, this is not a mix in the true DJ sense, ie no mixing going on. The songs are basically run like any other standard greatest hits album, which I was disappointed about (I assumed it would be a proper DJ'd mix compilation). But it is better than the many other 80s greatest hits albums even if it is not a true mix in the tradition of MOS.

I'm so glad I bought this. It arrived within a few days of placing the order and as soon as I put it in the CD player, I was dancing and transported back to some of the happiest times of my life - dancing all night in the clubs in the 80s. Never thought I'd get Japan's Quiet Life, Belouis Some's Imagination and Stephen Duffy's Kiss Me, in one collection. Flippin' marvellous!!

I would give this a 90% rating. Many great 80's tracks, but the early eighties were by far the best for electronic music. Why on earth Pump Up The Volume, 19 and the poor Sigue sigue Sputniks effort is on there instead of some classic Depeche Mode or a band called fashion or some more Japan only MoS can answer. I suppose they have to leave some out for the next one!!

The 80's is my era. I grew up buying and dancing to these tunes and any new 80's various hits album is a winner for me BUT..... Considering MOS have put their name to this one if I were them I would never use the producer again!! The collection is good don't get me wrong but the quality of the tracks is poor! Some sound like they have been copied from a very dodgy master that has been round the block. muffled and at times the volume goes up and down? I listened to it through itunes and I transfer all my music to my Ipod classic at 320,000 so would expect a decent sound but very disappointed. Lets hope that the next release from MOS is better quality than this one which sounds like its been rushed and the only thing being thought of is the cash to be made.
