AllMusic Review by

Warner's Ultimate Hits budget-line series looks to the 1980s this time around, including enduring hits like INXS's "New Sensation," Yes' "Owner of a Lonely Heart," and Steve Winwood's "Higher Love" next to almost novelties (Diamond Dave's run at "California Girls") and songs killed by lax licensing ("Whip It"). In between, the Georgia Satellites snuggle with Bananarama, and Foreigner anchors set middle with the sappy/fantastic ballad "I Want to Know What Love Is."
