AllMusic Review by

The fifth volume of Platinum Disc's 80s Monster Rock series includes Loverboy's "Lovin' Every Minute of It," Eddie Money's "Take Me Home Tonight/Be My Baby," the Romantics' "Talking in Your Sleep," Men at Work's "Who Can It Be Now?," and Matthew Wilder's "Break My Stride." This volume isn't quite as macho in tone when compared to its counterparts, so it might be considered one of the least monstrous editions of the series. It's yet another perfectly average collection, and it doesn't score any points for being skimpy -- there are only ten songs in all. Consumers are advised again to favor any number of various-artist titles that provide more bang for the buck.
