Greatest Ever!: Eighties: The Definitive Collection [2014]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
This budget-priced, three-part, 60-track box set from Sony UK includes a nice cross-section of styles and sounds from pop music's most mercurial era, with highlights arriving via the post-punk splendor of the Teardrop Explodes "Reward", the propulsive, electro-soul of Cameo "Word Up", the dense, radio-ready new wave of Animotion "Obsession", and the quirky, blue-eyed folk-soul of Dexy's Midnight Runners "Come On Eileen".
