AllMusic Review by

The '80s produced some of the most vibrant and original dance/synth/pop music, and the Pop & Wave series collects some of the most well-known hits from that time. This fifth installment in this amazingly consistent series delivers the goods yet again with a smattering of new wave, a bit of U.K. synth pop, and a lot of chart-topping hits. The compilation wanes at moments, and at two discs is a bit overwhelming at times, but on the whole it's a solid release that would be perfect to fill those holes in your '80s collection.
