AllMusic Review by

Versions of Junior's "Mama Used to Say," Yarbrough & Peoples' "Don't Waste Your Time," Sister Sledge's "We Are Family," Candi Staton's "Suspicious Minds," Kool & the Gang's "Joanna," and the Manhattans' "Shining Star" are featured on The '80s: Words, another thoughtless compilation from the Bellevue label. Not all the selections are from the '80s, and some of them are re-recordings. Although the back of the package indicates that some of the inclusions aren't the originals, the listener won't know until she/he hears them. Regardless of the price, this disc -- as well as all others in this series -- should be avoided.
