AllMusic Review by

Dark Side of the 80s is a stunning double-disc set spanning the mingling sounds of goth rock, indie rock, and alternative rock. Standout cuts from Siouxsie & the Banshees, the Cure, the Sisters of Mercy, and the Cult round out some of the collection's more blackish desire while tunes from the Pixies, Talk Talk, and Killing Joke highlight the frigid shifts within new wave and college rock.
