AllMusic Review by

Essential '80s: 1985-1989 is a fine midline collection, boasting 14 number one hits from the late '80s. None of these songs are rare, but it's nice to have Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love," Paula Abdul's "Straight Up," Tears for Fears' "Shout," Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven Is a Place on Earth," Cutting Crew's "(I Just) Died In Your Arms," Mr. Mister's "Broken Wings," Starship's "Sara," Jan Hammer's "Miami Vice Theme," Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again," Boston's "Amanda" and Billy Vera's "At This Moment," among others, on one disc.
