AllMusic Review by

This three-disc set from Rhino U..K presents 60 of the "Me Decade"'s best and worst tracks. Instead of focusing on the era's fertile new wave/post-punk scene, 80s: The Collection sets its sights on the AOR rock and pop side of things, offering up cuts from the likes of Air Supply, Mr. Mister, REO Speedwagon, Michael Bolton, Kenny G, and New Kids on the Block, even allowing room for Miami Vice star Don Johnson's deplorable "Heartbeat."
