AllMusic Review by

PolyGram's Essential 12" of the 1980s includes extended mixes several of the decade's club classics, varying from "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell to "This Time I Know It's for Real" by Donna Summer to Coldcut's "Seven Minutes of Madness" remix of "Paid in Full" by Eric B. & Rakim. Though the diverse tastes ensure that most listeners won't enjoy every track, this is quite an interesting compilation.
