AllMusic Review by

Universal's cleverly titled 80's compilation rounds up 52 radio hits from the decade, including selections culled from multiple genres. Highlights include Big Country's rousing "Fields of Fire," Robbie Robertson's slickly produced yet strangely evocative "Somewhere Down the Crazy River," Cher's revealing aircraft carrier anthem "If I Could Turn Back Time," and Dickensian new wavers Dexys Midnight Runners' relentlessly catchy "Come On Eileen."
