The Pop Years: The 80s

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
This massive, ten-disc, 200-track box set covers a lot of ground. From post-punk and new wave to heavy metal and the paisley underground, the '80s were anything but dull, and Pop Years: The 80s does a nice job of conjuring up images of those old K-Tel record commercials that used to come on between Dance Fever and Solid Gold.
