AllMusic Review by

The U.K. version of Sony's budget-priced 30 Stars of the '80s collection features 30 radio hits from the era spread over two discs, with highlights arriving via Bonnie Tyler's ham-fisted, yet pitch-perfect power ballad "Total Eclipse of the Heart," Billy Ocean's amiable contribution to the Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner adventure comedy Jewel of the Nile, "When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going," and Whitney Houston's fresh and effusive "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)."
