AllMusic Review by

Wea International's two-disc Don't Stop the 80's collection is an above-average stew of familiar and not-so-familiar artists and material. Compilation mainstays like Madonna ("Like a Virgin") Ah-Ha ("Take on Me"), Pat Benatar, ("Love Is a Battlefield), and Kajagoogoo ("Too Shy) are well represented, however it's the inclusion of "below the radar" oddities from Bronski Beat, Godley and Creme, Alphaville, and Camoflauge that make this decade overview a cut above the rest.
