AllMusic Review by

Ultimate New Wave Party 1998 is an entertaining, 18-track collection featuring such perennials as "Heart of Glass," "Dancing with Myself, " "Tainted Love, " "Let's Dance, " "The Look of Love, " "I Melt With You, " "What I Like About You, " "Take My Breath Away, " "Our House, " "Love Plus One, " "I Ran (So Far Away), " "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), " "She Blinded Me With Science" and "Hungry Like the Wolf." It's a strong collection of songs, but purists and collectors be forewarned -- all 18 songs are segued in order to replicate the feel of a party, which means it is not designed for home listening.
