AllMusic Review by

This U.K.-centric collection of '80s hits includes enough colossal hits like "Karma Chameleon" (Culture Club), "Rio" (Duran Duran), "Walking on Sunshine" (Katrina & the Waves), and "Don't You (Forget About Me)" (Simple Minds) to entice listeners outside of Great Britain, but it's the inclusion of Brit-worthy acts like Johnny Hates Jazz ("Shattered Dreams," Feargal Sharkey ("A Good Heart"), and Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark ("Enola Gay") that keeps things interesting.
