AllMusic Review by

Retro Mix gathers new wave, dance pop, and underground rock hits from the '80s and features artists like China Crisis, Strange Advance, Endgames, and Killing Joke. Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill (12" Mix)," REM's "One I Love," and Naked Eyes' "Always Something There to Remind Me" are among the collection's highlights, as are Simple Minds' two contributions to the album. Spandau Ballet, Billy Idol, Power Station, and Talk Talk round out this aptly named, entertaining sampler.
