AllMusic Review by

Each volume in Platinum Disc's weak New Wave '80s series offers its own random assortment of tracks that have little to do with one another -- in fact, several of the selections scattered across the discs aren't even new wave (hello, Go West), falling well outside the time frame, in addition to having little to do with new wave in the stylistic sense. Another problem is that each disc features only ten songs. The second volume includes Re-Flex's "Politics of Dancing," Spandau Ballet's "True," Missing Persons' "Words," Bow Wow Wow's "I Want Candy," and Billy Idol's "Flesh for Fantasy."
