Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Top of the Pops: 80s Number 1s, a budget-priced, 19-track collection of new wave, pop
ock, and post-punk/hair metal gems from pop music's most colorful and questionable decade, features Spandex jams (Europe's "The Final Countdown"), skinny-tie classics (Duran Duran's "Is There Something I Should Know"), hobo anthems (Dexys Midnight Runners' "Geno"), and hits that were better off left inside of the parachute pant-lined time capsule (New Kids on the Block's "Hangin' Tough").
