Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The second '80s-focused entry in Varese Sarabande's Then: Totally Oldies series mixes it up more than some '80s comps, still concentrating on the new wave salad days of the first half of the decade, but reaching as far as 1988 and 1989 to include Icehouse's sleek AOR standard "Electric Blue" and the Cult's rampaging "Fire Woman." This gives the collection a bit more diversity, even if there are a lot of familiar tunes at its core, songs like "Centerfold," "You Spin Me Round Like a Record," "Whip It," "Walk Like Egyptian," "Down Under," and "Broken Wings" that regularly show up on '80s comps. What distinguishes this one is that there's some interesting choices in...

What distinguishes this one is that there's some interesting choices in the margins, things that make up for the inclusion of the hideous Stars on 45 medley that stops the disc dead in its tracks about halfway through. Discounting that, there are some good things that don't appear all that much on standard '80s collections, such as Get Wet's "Just So Lonely," Benjamin Orr's "Stay the Night" giving this collection a grand total of two Cars-related cuts, Pat Benatar's anthemic "We Belong," Love and Rockets' college favorite "No New Tale to Tell," and the Korgis' "Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime," which was revived earlier in 2004 by Beck on the soundtrack for Michel Gondry's brilliant film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. All of these inclusions help make Then: Totally Oldies '80s Again, Vol. 7 a better than average '80s collection.

    Stars and one-hit wonders of the '80s

    This is a fine complement to Varese's first volume of '80s hits, providing a second helping bona-fide stars (Bangles, Cars, Pat Benatar), and one- (and possibly two-) hit wonders. The latter are particularly valuable, as collecting them on CD, especially the original single mixes, can be tough and pricy. In addition to true one-hit wonders like Dead or Alive ("You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)") and Total Coelo ("I Eat Cannibals"), the song list features bands whose flirtation with chart success only hints at their rich catalog and history. Artists like J. Geils, Devo, Greg Kihn, The Cult, and Love and Rockets all have album catalogs well worth exploring beyond these hits. It's amazing to think back to a time when this much variety - new wave, rock, soul, could all be heard on the same radio station (not to mention a time when MTV played videos end-to-end). A generous 18 tracks make this a good party record, and song-by-song chart info and liner notes fill out the story for collectors.
