AllMusic Review by

The second volume of Video Soul: Best Soul of the '80s follows the same pattern as its predecessor, dividing its time between uptempo dance numbers ("Love on a Two Way Street," "The Other Woman, " "Jump to It, " "Jump (For My Love), " "Jungle Love, " "Lean on Me") and smooth ballads ("Baby Come to Me, " "Save the Overtime (For Me), " "Joanna"). This disc covers the mid-'80s, which weren't quite as consistent in terms of material, but many of the era's highlights are here, and it offers a solid overview of urban R&B during those years.
