The 1980s were a transformative time for electronic music. With the demise of punk and the rise of New Wave followed by the all-consuming glamour of the New Romantics, electronic music went from being thought of as barely music at all to being the only music people wanted to listen to, all within the space of a few years. This collection brings together some of the best the 80s had to offer in electronica and synth pop, from the cool left-field stylings of Propaganda, Visage and The Passions to some of the best all-out chart pop ever created in Erasure, Spandau Ballet, Wham! and ABC. Long live the Electric Eighties!

Imagine my disappointment when I found that rather than having the full versions I'd enjoyed listening to online all you get are the 3 megamixes from the end of the album on Amazon Prime Music - you don't get the other 55 individual and complete tracks.
So instead of the 12" version of Blue Monday 88 that clocks in at over 7 minutes from the Prime Music version you get a track that is 5 mins long including the start of Spin Me Round by Dead Or Alive at the end, not good.
In fact it is using the regular Blue Monday rather than the 88 remix as well....
To make matters worse the song listing on the sleeve lists the songs individually and calls them 12" version etc when they aren't at all, they've been truncated and stuck together with cellotape!
Maybe the MP3 version gives you what it is on Prime Music. If so, buy that don't buy this!!!
That said the music is still great but it's more a CD for the car when you want to listen from start to finish than a CD where you can choose to listen to certain tracks.
I'm happy to report that the pack delivers, and actually exceeds my expectations, and all tracks seem to be the original recordings, rather than what tends to happen on cheap compilations of "a member of the original band happened to be in the studio when we did this cover version" session albums of yesteryear.
Also, there are a few gems here that rarely appear on compilations, so I now have on CD for the first time.
