The second volume of Now That's What I Call the 80s, following the first by just over a year, contains nothing but major hits, and it slightly favors singles from the latter part of the decade. The Police's "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" and the Human League's "Don't You Want Me," both from 1981, are the only songs here from 1980 through 1982, while the classes of 1986 through 1988 are well represented with Paula Abdul's "Straight Up," George Michael's "Faith," and Robert Palmer's "Simply Irresistible."

Released by Sony, just about everything on it comes from a Sony BMG-distributed artist -- so, once more, marquee '80s superstars like Madonna and Prince are left out. The selections, apart from being major smashes, do seem rather random. In a way, that's part of the appeal, but a disc dedicated to each year of the decade would have been a much more interesting route.
