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.

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!!

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!!

If you grew up in the Eighties and if you are looking for a timecapsule to recapture your youth look no further - this is a fantastic album!

It's an interesting mix of the various sub-genres of electronica from the '80s. Obviously, it has a few of the most well-known mainstream electronic offerings from Gary Numan, Visage and so on, but there are also some songs that I'd class as an ordinary pop song where one of the many instruments just happens to be a synthesiser. I'd hardly call those "electronic music", but such tracks aren't necessarily bad, and are still enjoyable.

Seeing as it's supposed to be "electronic 80s", there are also a couple of notable absences - the first that springs to mind is that there's nothing on the CDs by The Sisters of Mercy. When someone says "electronic" and "80s" in the same sentence, they're the first band that pops in to my head.

Not all tracks will suit all tastes, but as there are 3 CDs, that doesn't matter so much as there is bound to be something for everybody on this inexpensive compilation. Now, back to my listening. M/A/R/R/S are instructing me to Pump Up The Volume, so I'm afraid I've simply got to comply with their request...
