Hmmm, yet another 80's compliation......
There seems to be a bit of a renaisannce with these type albums, no doubt helped by TV programmes such as "I love..." & "Top Ten" on BBC2 & Ch 4 respectively. Where the danger of these type of albums lie is that they may tend to put too many well known tracks on the album, and forget about the others that are lesser know, but equally popular from that period of time.
Atomic 80's caters for it's audience quite well in that respect. Famous tracks such as Look of love by ABC, You spin me round (like a record) by Dead Or Alive & Reflex by Duran Duran are only a hatful of these popular tracks.
But what pleases most is the inclusion of some gems that the next generation may not get introduced to - songs such as Diggin' your scene by the Blow Monkeys and Killing moon by Echo & The Bunnymen defined the varying nature of pop music throuhg the 80's, so it is quite easy to overlook tracks such as these.
The only thing that I am dissappointed is the time period - the 80's lasted from 1980 until 1989, but the song selction appears to have stopped at about 1986 or thereabouts. There have been some other classics around dutring the 80's, but I feel, give it 6 months, there will be a sequel to this album. Gosh, call me a cynic, why don't you.
If you haven't discovered the eighties, well, this is as good an opportunity as ever to listen the the type of music that moulded a generation, and as to why the eighties pop revivial nights at clubs across the UK are so popular.

Lets face it, as good as they were, the 80's had a lot of bad songs too. It's very easy to go out and buy an 80's compilation CD that's full of tat. Luckily, this one is a gem. You get 2 CDs packed with quality songs that you will recognise from your childhood and listen to again and again. The songs are definitely more 'grown up' than most from the 80's with a strong electronic theme throughout the album. Will benefit from being played through a good sound system with the bass turned up!
