3 Nothing original about this collection...londoncalling | 12/03/2009 | See all londoncalling's reviews (42)Top 100 Reviewer Top 10 Music Reviewer Ok, well, here we go again...another 80's collection. Look around this CD set, see what you have already, then it might not leave too many tracks left.Most of these songs are just about put on every 80's compilation, so therefor it's nothing new, has nothing fresh about it, it just feels 'same again please'. If however you are looking for your first 80's collection, you might want to carry on looking around a bit more. This may not be the place to start!!!That said, there are a few reasons why I ended up giving this three stars and not two. Sleepwalk - Ultravox, The Sound Of The Crowd - The Human League, It's My Party - Dave Stewart And Barbara Gaskin and Mandinka - Sinéad O'Connor are all very good songs, and if truth be told there are a couple of others. The price also, is rather good at these lean times. But overall, it doesn't quite hit the spot, it wants to, but manages to fall flat compared to many, many other 80's compilations out there.I would like to have seen whats on CD 5 and 6, as it could make some difference to the rating. Until then, I'm afraid three stars is all I can give for a compilation that in the end, trips up where most of them do...it doesn't offer anything different.
