AllMusic Review by

Hip-O's Gold: '80s Metal provides two full discs of spandex anthems than run the gamut from brooding progressive rock (Queensrÿche's "Eyes of a Stranger") to sleazy hair metal (Bulletboys' "Smooth Up in Ya"). The compilation covers an awful lot of ground (Kingdom Come, Dangerous Toys, Bang Tango), but there are enough Headbanger's Ball classics here, like Accept's "Balls to the Walls," Winger's "Seventeen," Warrant's "Cherry Pie," and most importantly Autograph's "Turn Up the Radio," to satisfy the masses.
