A good disc disc by any standard, lots of big name bands from the
eighties and big hits from them. The arrangement didn't get too wacky through
the disc like some of the discs from Time Life and the linear notes are actual
interesting to read (and arranged like a booklet instead of a lousy fold out
thing that's impossible to refold like the Sounds of the Eighties). Easily
the best disc in the set. There's only one song I have any real complaint
with, and that would be the Stevie Wonder song, he had much bigger hits in the
eighties and before, this one is just a little too weak for the disc. This
also has to be the only eighties compilation I've ever owned with Bob Marley
which is pretty different, and helps round out the disc (instead of making it
strictly one genre).
