AllMusic Review by

Despite the unconscionably lame title, '80s Dance Party, Vol. 1 is a solid 12-track collection of acid house, electro, new wave, urban R&B and mainstream dance hits from the '80s, including Bomb the Bass's "Beat Dis," Herbie Hancock's "Rockit," Inner City's "Big Fun" and S'Express' "Theme from S'Express" as well as Ready for the World's "Oh Sheila" and Jody Watley's "Looking for a New Love." Some tracks, like Animotion's "Obsession," are included in "dance mixes," but the overall effect is that of a fun party-oriented sampler.
