5.0 out of 5 stars The decade that taste forgot?
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,...

3.0 out of 5 stars 'Is Remastering Killing The Compilation?'
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 24 Aug 2013
This review is from: The 80S (Audio CD)
Fanatstic compilation, a must have for music fans!

The diversity of the artists, styles and sounds goes to show that the 80s was probably one of the most creative eras in music history. The current state of the music industry is so bland and homogenous - it simply cannot compare. The electronic sounds were pioneering, the world hadn't heard anything like this before!

Yes some of the artists on here had better singles and some classic 80s artists and tracks are missing - Depeche Mode, The Smiths, The Pet Shop Boys, OMD, The Police, Joy Division, New Order, Patrice Rushen, Prince and Chaka Khan to name a few but that's probably down to the record label restrictions etc! Forget that and enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars still waiting for the perfect 80s album, 19 Aug 2013
This review is from: The 80S (Audio CD)
OK, 4 CDs, so a lot of tracks for your money. There are probably 40 really good tracks, which under normal circumstances would be fantastic. Unfortunately there are just as many 'stocking filler' tracks as well.

In many cases, the filler tracks are from bands, who had many better hits than the one that was included. I have never understood this.

Would it matter if there was more than one track from the same act ?

For some the 80s was a gold mine of material for an album like this. So, plenty to like about this, but certainly not as good as it could, or should, of been.
