AllMusic Review by

One of three entries in Time Life's Sounds of the Eighties series (distinct from the larger series available through the company's television offer), Sounds of the Eighties: 80's Pop Classics is a pretty good selection of pop/rock, soft rock, and funky R&B/dance hits. Although there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason as to why songs were selected for the compilation, there are plenty of great singles here, including Hall & Oates' "Maneater," Lipps, Inc.'s "Funkytown," Michael Sembello's "Maniac," Toto's "Africa," Cameo's "Word Up," and Air Supply's "One That You Love," among others.
