Geffen Vintage 80s Presents: Rock It!! collects nine deep album cuts from the hard rock '80s, most of which will fall on deaf ear for listeners looking for hair metal classics or classic rock jams from the likes of Boston or REO Speedwagon. Instead, "almost hits" from Whitesnake ("Fool for Your Loving"), Black 'N Blue ("Miss Mystery"), Jimmy Barnes ("Too Much Ain't Enough Love"), and Y&T ("Contagious") are built around one solid smash from Asia ("Only Time Will Tell"), from the group's breakthrough 1982 debut.
