AllMusic Review by

It's kind of absurd to suggest that the dozen songs collected here represent the best pop fare recorded in the 1980s, and while there are some obvious classics, including Joe Jackson's "Steppin' Out," the Pretenders' feisty "Back on the Chain Gang," and Tears for Fears' unavoidable faux anthem "Shout," the '80s had a good deal more going on than this; at least one hopes the decade did. It's hard to recall.
