AllMusic Review by

EMI’s massive six-disc Original Hits: 80s Pop box set collects 120 club jams from the 1980s. Most of the usual suspects are here (Duran Duran, Culture Club, Thomas Dolby, Spandau Ballet, Thompson Twins, Human League), but the inclusion of '80s compilation rarities like XTC’s “Sgt. Rock (Is Going to Help Me),” Adam & the Ants’ “Prince Charming,” and Sigue Sigue Sputnik’s “21st Century Boy” helps to keep things fresh.
