I broke two of my own cardinal rules concerning the purchase of 80s compilation albums when I sent for this particular one. First, it contains nothing by Bananarama. That may not seem like much of an omission, in the grand scheme of things, but it often makes it more difficult to justify my purchase to myself in the cold light of the next credit card bill. Especially when combined, as in this case, with such a flagrant disregard for my other rule - any 80s mix that contains '99 Red Balloons' and / or 'Down Under' has a very good chance of providing no musical surprises whatsoever. And, boy, does Nena get about!

Alas however, there is a third rule that seems to take precedence over all others - I am addicted to buying 80s compilation CDs. For someone like me, there simply ARE no rules.

As it happens though, I don't think I've done too badly at all here (obviously putting the lack of Bananarama tracks to one side). The contributions from Nena and Men At Work are like a pair of pink fluffy 80s slippers - comfortable and familiar, if also not exactly the most inspirational items in your wardrobe. Still, at least this compilation is completely upfront about seeing the need to include them and at least they're both completely out of your hair within the first three tracks.

It must be incredibly difficult to put together an 'original' collection of 'Classic Eighties Pop And Rock Hits'; you've got to bring something different to the compilation genre but, at the same time, you need to stay just the right side of familiarity. This collection manages that rather daunting task pretty effectively, all things considered. These are indeed classic songs but, at the same time, there is an awful lot here that only makes very odd appearances on other compilation CDs.

This is the sort of album that you play for all the songs you think you know.. and then the songs you don't recognise in writing are old friends to your ears.. and altogether this is just a brilliant album, just oozing 80s. Buy it!
