5.0 out of 5 stars The best compilation/soundtrack album of all time, 15 Jun. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto - Vice City (Audio CD)
This is no idle statement. Whilst most people look on the 80s as naff and an era of musical stagnation, Vice City disproves the theory that the 80s was a wasted decade. Much of the music is cheese - oh GOD is it cheese - but it's good cheese!
For those who have never played Vice City, the game is set in a fictional city in Miami in 1986. The songs here on this sprawling 7 CD set are from the 1980-1986 era, and are compilation CDs of the radio stations within the game. There has been real thought that has gone into the selection of these songs. CD1 contains tracks from some of the best rock and heavy metal bands of the era in Judas Priest, Motley Crue, Anthrax, Iron Maiden and Slayer. CD2 is a new wave CD that has some excellent pop music from Kim Wilde, Aneka, Human League etc. CD3 plays love songs and ballads, such as Toto and Cutting Crew. CD4 is a dance CD with tracks from Michael Jackson and ELO. CD5 is a superb hip hop and rap compilation featuring tracks from that era that were huge, like Herbie Hancock's Rockit and The Message by Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five. CD6 is an R & B and soul CD, with some classy tracks (including Oliver Cheatham's original "Make Luv"). CD7 has some excellent Latin music from that early Eighties era.
Even if you hated the 80s (and most people did), buy this CD. You might not recognise a lot of the titles but you will know the songs. There is a wide variety of musical styles for everyone. And it is an intelligent selection, unlike most commercial CDs that feed consumers braindead car ad rubbish like Morcheeba and M People.
The best compilation CD ever.
