AllMusic Review by

The third volume in Tommy Boy's Perfect Beats series balances electro standards that many dance fans have heard (Shannon's "Give Me Tonight," Hashim's "Al Naafiysh," Heaven 17's "Let Go," Aleem's "Release Yourself") with quite a few neglected classics of the early-'80s garage/electro period like "Renegades of Funk" by Afrika Bambaataa, "If This Ain't Love" by Jay Novell, "Din Daa Daa" by George Kranz, and "99½" by Carol Lynn Townes, among others.
