AllMusic Review by

Part of the Bellevue label's extensive series of arbitrarily selected '80s-themed compilations -- some of the songs were released during the following decade -- We Built This City includes Imagination's "Music and Lights," Barbara Mason's "Another Man," Sister Sledge's "He's the Greatest Dancer," the Deele's "Two Occasions," and Starship's "We Built This City." The back of the disc notes that some of the selections are re-recordings, but there's no track-by-track notification. The listener won't know whether a specific song is an original or a re-recording until she/he hears it. As with all other volumes in this series, it should be avoided.
