1.0 out of 5 stars How is this alternative?, 29 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Anthems Alternative 80s (Audio CD)
I don't understand why this album is called Altenative 80s. These are all mainstream pop hits. Hardly a dud amongst them but highly misleading packaging. Now if there were some truly alternative acts, a bit of Spear of Destiny, The Cult, Cocteau Twins etc etc then I mint be interested. But I guess this is just another exercise in lazy repackaging of the obvious hits. Avoid.

You are very right! I am 25 years old and as a big fan of 80s music I know the difference between alternative and mainstream 80s pop.
I got a little excited when I looked to find the first track was The Cure - Lullaby, but then became confused when I saw Culture Club as the 2nd track because they are just mainstream 80s pop! and then the tracks that follow were also mostly mainstream!
I went through the track list several times to try and find something actually alternative, i.e. Siouxsie & the Banshees, Cocteau Twins, Sonic Youth etc but no luck :-(

Alternative? I think this might be a Trade Descriptions Act issue! Ministry ought to stick to dance compilations, as they obviously don't know much about "alternative" music.

What's next, I wonder? 'Alternative 90s' with the Spice Girls on it?

maybe ministry of sound will do an alternative 80's heavy metal anthems compilation with Michael Bolton, Richard Marx and Tina Turner on...
