  This isn't the mainstream top 40 crap you would find totally choking a
normal 80s compilation to death. It also doesn't just find one or two popular
songs and fill the rest of the disc with crap.  The liner notes are good, with
pictures of some of the album covers that the songs are from. The inclusion of
some hard to find singles like "This Beat Goes On" with it's normal "Switchin'
to Glide" segway is a nice touch.  It's also nice to see songs by groups that
had bigger hits with other songs, since most of those songs are fairly easy
to come by.  A good example would be "Shame" by the Motels, since "Danger"
would be the usual inclusion.  Though, this series does already have two
other Motels singles helps to dull the enthusiam a little by this point.
It was also nice to see "Eyes Without a Face" which is a lesser known Idol
song, but one of the best punk ballads I've ever heard. "Johnny, Are You Queer"
and "Don't Sniff Coke" I could have done without, the former because I have
it on a lot of compilations, and doesn't really fit in here too well and the
later song just doesn't fit in period. I recommend this disc to someone with
a large compilation collection, otherwise you may be a little disappointed if
you don't recognize the songs from their titles.
