Forever Gold: The 80s Decade takes the radio hits found here and reworks them for a much bigger production. Select favorites from the likes of Berlin, Gary Numan, Irene Cara, and Howard Jones are included and their newly added layers of samples and strings take away from the original version's underlying sentiments. Night Ranger's "Sister Christian" was a chart smash in 1983, but it is really necessary to have "Rock in America" on here as well? Forever Gold: The 80s Decade could have done nicely without it.
