AllMusic Review by

This budget-priced, three-part, 60-track box set from Sony UK includes a nice cross-section of styles and sounds from pop music's most mercurial era, with highlights arriving via the post-punk splendor of the Teardrop Explodes ("Reward"), the propulsive, electro-soul of Cameo ("Word Up"), the dense, radio-ready new wave of Animotion ("Obsession"), and the quirky, blue-eyed folk-soul of Dexy's Midnight Runners ("Come On Eileen").
