AllMusic Review by

Knowing no bounds when it comes to making numerous variations on the same theme, Time Life's Sounds of the Eighties series breaks down the decade with year-specific volumes, then with another set that looks at a couple years at a time, and then with yet another set that looks at a few years at a time. However, there is very little (if any) overlap between the discs. Sounds of the Eighties: The Late '80s features Taylor Dayne's "Tell It to My Heart," Billy Vera & the Beaters' "At This Moment," the Bangles' "In Your Room," Aretha Franklin and George Michael's "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)," and Debbie Gibson's "Out of the Blue."
