VH1: The Big 80's Pop

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
No liner notes, no explanation, little rhyme or reason behind what songs made Rhino's VH1 The Big 80s: Pop and what was left behind.

So, there are probably enough unconventional choices to keep this disc interesting, but it's still fairly predictable new wave/early-'80s material. Still, it isn't bad in that regard, and if you're looking for a bunch of the songs on this collection, this is a good choice.
