AllMusic Review by

Best of 80s Rock, Vol. 2 doesn't really contain any rock & roll -- unless you call Boy George or a scrawny, shirtless Paul Weller crooning "My Ever Changing Moods" "rock & roll." Once you get past that, the disc is an enjoyable collection of new romantic/new wave, featuring classics by Culture Club ("Miss Me Blind"), Madness ("Our House"), Wang Chung ("Let's Go!"), Bronski Beat ("Smalltown Boy"), Fun Boy Three ("Our Lips Are Sealed"), Heaven 17 ("(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thing"), and the Style Council's wonderful "My Ever Changing Moods."
