AllMusic Review by

The most significant characteristic of Disky's four-volume Maximum '80s series is that it features 12" mixes of all the songs included within it, which makes it different from most other '80s-themed compilations. The emphasis is on new wave and rock singles that were suited for dancefloors and, with rare exception, ignores R&B and hip-hop; this is a good way for DJs who play weddings and retro-oriented functions to snap up a whole bunch of versions that might otherwise only be available on vinyl. This box set packages all four discs together, making for a convenient one-stop purchase for those who have an insatiable appetite for this kind of thing.
