Platinum Disc's Greatest Hits of the 80's, Vol. 2 covers a lot of ground in only ten tracks. From the smooth soul of Gregory Abbott ("Shake You Down"), the bubbling power pop of Tommy Tutone ("867-5309/Jenny"), the poppy arena rock of REO Speedwagon ("Can't Fight This Feeling") and the Outfield ("Your Love"), the hair metal of Warrant ("Down Boys") and the new wave of the Psychedelic Furs ("Pretty in Pink"), the disc rounds up a lot of classic-'80s pop. It is too bad the disc is so short and shoddily packaged because it has the makings of a very nice collection.
