Tell you what, the clothes and hairdos might be embarrassing now but my goodness these singles stick in the memory. That's something that can't be said about today's tracks eh? I must admit that I probably only bought about a third of these tracks either as singles or on albums when they first came out, thinking that the rest were a bit rubbish (e.g. Wham). However, having grown rose tinted ears over the past few years, and with the benefit of hindsight(hindhearing?) I have to say that I remember every one of these songs and the artists and the dodgy videos and the even dodgier TOTP appearances and love them all. Of course this is just the latest in a long line of 80's compilations but for me it is amongst the best - at least as it impacts on my memories.

Poptastic Mate!

This set has a fantastic selection of popular 80's tracks and with 4 CD's for your money it is also good value for the asking price. The snag, however, as is all too common an occurrence these days is that the remastering job has in a lot of cases either 'remastered the 80's out of the track' to the extent that the track sounds like a re-record or has maxed out the volume and wiped out any dynamic range. The sound here has a generally echoey tone to it and while tracks like 'Don't You Want Me' by The Human League or 'Smalltown Boy ' by Bronski Beat seem unaffected by it other tracks simply sound as if the artist is booming away vocally in a cave. The cavernous - set the vocal apart - sound of this compilation is best/worst served by 'Don't You Forget (About Me)' by Simple Minds. Jim Kerr sounds as if he is right next to you singing while the female backing vocals are much more prominent in the mix than they were on the original single. While the remixer would say (correctly) in his defense that he has only 'brought out of the original mix elements previously buried' the point is that most people who remember these classic songs from the time want them to sound how they remembered them!

Another dire sounding track is the opener, 'The Reflex' by Duran Duran. It always was a 'busy' song but now it sounds as if the sound fades in and out in a desperate attempt to make the thing work. It reminds me of the 70's technique of 'phasing' which was used to deliberately distort the vocal. I suppose what it boils down to is how much about the original 7" versions of these songs you remember? I was after all a D.J. at the time and so have heard these songs hundreds of times over.

I think this is the best 80s compilation CD I have come across. There is music across the genres. The 80s look may have been naff but the music was brilliant. Buy and bop.

Pretty good cd if you like the 80s. Good value for money however cd4 not the best in my opinion. Few 80s classics missing for me to rate this higher. As always print delivery and well packaged/ priced.
