A Dream Collection of the '80s biggest hits!
I was surprised that they did a Now '80s compilation, even though they're more focused on current 2007-2008 hits. This is a dream collection of the best songs from the '80s. Michael Jackson was the right one to start it off with Billie Jean and after that is a nonstop party collection of hits from Cyndi Lauper to The Fixx to Simple Minds to Wham! to Whitesnake to Rick Springfield to Heart to Bryan Adams to Herbie Hancock's Rockit to Bonnie Tyler and so forth! I still love these records a good 20 to 25 years later! They still sound fresh to this day! But keep in mind that I also listen to these songs in a current way, such as, How would these songs sound today in 2008? Not reduce myself to nostalgia tactics. The CD is well mastered and crisp with the sounds! For the '80s listeners, please get multiple copies for your friends. For today's audiences so fixed into Rihanna, Lil' Wayne, Ashlee Simpson, Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus, here is a chance to hear these artists' musical influences. It's not all slick sounds that they're into. Yes, some big names they left out, but this is the best '80s collection that I've seen in recent times!Was this review helpful?
