         Well, they got Christmas covered, so what was left? I can honestly
say this is the best 80s Halloween CD I've heard, but that's only because it's
the ONLY 80s Halloween CD I've heard. This CD though suceeds as being a great
compilation of odd B sides and rare songs you wouldn't normally find. The only
downside for me is the inclusion of the Time Warp which isn't really from the
new wave era. "The Munsters Theme" is an excellent synth version of the
classic theme and gives it a whole new dimension. I give this disc the highest
rating of the season because of it's originality and inclusion of such oddball
delights. You WON'T find these songs on other compilations, so it's a nice
breath of fresh air. I didn't even know there were so many songs names
