AllMusic Review by

What better way to start the fifth volume of I Love ZYX: Italo Disco Collection than with one-off act Perestroika Power and their "Animal Farm," which is -- maybe you guessed it, or even knew all about it already -- a late-'80s Hi-NRG production with animal noises scattered over it. A couple gangs are also present, namely Camaro's Gang with "Fuerza Major" and Cruisin' Gang with "Traces of Sand" and "America" (the latter of which incorporates some replayed elements of Propaganda's "p:Machinery," released a year earlier). As is standard for the series, this is a hit-and-miss three-disc compilation and most of the selections appear in 12"/extended form.
