The 80s are back...Again!!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 12" 80S Alternative (Audio CD)
Have to agree with the previous reviewer - this is a killer collection and of huge interest to those of us who remember and bought the singles when they were released. I always tried to buy the 12 inch version of a single, not only because 7 inch singles tended to wear out quicker but because I really felt I was getting great value. The formula was always pretty basic - repeat choruses, loop certain parts of the mix and play around with the vocals. Nothing mindblowing but an alternative to the 3 minute single version. There's some great stuff here - I have to admit to having a preference for CD3 which is categorised as the guitar disc. But that's not to take anything away from discs 1 and 2. Many of the tracks are unfamiliar to me but that makes the package superb value. With getting on for 4 hours music this is the finest foray yet into the era of the extended remix. With a stagnant and predictable music industry obsessed with autotuned pretty boys, girls dressed like slappers and hideous (c)rap music this is a welcome nostalgia trip.

Superb! I've felt this way for quite a few years now. I've got all of the series so far bar this one. Will be ordering soon.
