AllMusic Review by

Drew and the tireless Hit Crew steamroll through 30 hits of the '80s. No, these aren't the original versions performed by the likes of the Police, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Toni Basil, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and Pat Benatar. These are re-creations, as noted at the very bottom on the back of the package: "All newly recorded digitally mastered music by the Hit Crew." For every rendition that is surprisingly faithful, there are three or four that are howlingly bad, sounding cheaply recorded and comically performed. The version of George Michael's "Faith" is almost as funny as the one recorded by Limp Bizkit.
