Classic Love Songs of the 80's is a pretty boring collection of '80s love ballads and rockers. Like many collections of this type, there are a few recognizable songs and the rest has mostly been forgotten since the end of the decade. Many of these tracks are vaguely familiar, they were at least released as singles during the '80s if they were not big hits. But that does not make them classic love songs by any means; it just means that they were singles. And herding all of those singles onto a collection that only has "Missing You" and "Let's Go All the Way" to really recommend it is not a good idea. This album is easy to avoid, as there are hundreds more like it, and they might even have a better track selection.
