AllMusic Review by

From the clinically sleazy Dead or Alive track "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" to the sweet "And We Danced," this volume of Definitive Records' Year in Your Life series is full of the great sounds of the decade that spawned MTV. This collection contains an amazing variety of performers, from the Duran Duran spin-off Power Station to the atmospheric art rock of Kate Bush to the dance-pop of Teena Marie. One special highlight is 'Til Tuesday's "Voices Carry," which is still enchanting more than a decade after its release.
