In a few words, I can explain why I think this collection fails as a "greatest hits of the 80's" album. There is an absence of: Eurythmics, George Michael, Corey Hart, Wham, and just take a look at the track list, because mine goes on. I guess for the bargain price, expectations can't be set that high. You get what you pay for.

This box set has something for everyone, especially if you want an idea of what was popular in Europe during the Eighties, i.e. names like Sandra, Kajagoogoo, Mel & Kim, Duran Duran, Ultravox... Many, many big hits and a bunch of unknown gems for those who want to explore.

HASH(0x9e709588) out of 5 stars A Fantastic Bargain and an Adventure to Boot Feb. 3 2002
By Danaphile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are eight discs, each containing 18 tracks, and they want $42? Anyone who does the math will realize that paying under $6 per disc is a great deal, even if you don't know half of the songs. Many of the songs on this collection only became popular in Europe, so U.S. audiences are bound to make a discovery or two. It's well worth the price, especially if you're open to hearing hits from other parts of the world.

HASH(0x9e7095a0) out of 5 stars A must have box set of high quality songs from a great era June 27 2006
By Elak Swindell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Being a BIG fan of 1980s era music, finding this 8 CD box set was really a treasure. Sure, I have a lot of the songs available on the discs in my huge 80s MP3 song collection (16 discs worth so far and still growing), but there are so many others included that I would never have known about or heard since they only aired in the UK. Of course, there are a few other excellent European music artists that do not show up in the set. People like Shakin' Stevens, Don McLean, English Beat and Madness; but they can be mostly found in other collected sets (with the exception of Shakin' Stevens, which is a shame, because his rock n' roll music is excellent). My only complaint about this box collection is the lack of information in concerns to the album each song was taken from and the confusion I have about the two numbers after each title (for example: Adrian Gurvitz: Classic 3,39). Does this mean track 3, Billboard rating 39? I don't know. Other than this minor issue, I highly recommend this CD set for any fan of the 80s music era. You won't be disappointed at the selection and quality.

HASH(0x9e70987c) out of 5 stars Greatest Hits in Europe not U.S. Feb. 2 2013
By Danyo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many people who are disappointed in these imported Greatest Hits collections don't seem to realize that these are IMPORTED. These songs were all legitimate hits in Europe, usually Great Britain, but not necessarily in the U.S. If someone is looking for familiar American radio greatest hits don't buy imports, buy U.S. collections.

For those who wish to hear what they were listening to in England or elsewhere try the imports. They have enough familiar tunes to satisfy as well as others that are just as good and will grow on you in time. If you are only looking for memories stick with U.S. compilations otherwise explore and enjoy.

HASH(0x9e709db0) out of 5 stars Caveat Emptor: look at the song list before purchasing. Feb. 12 2008
By D. Portlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are some very obscure and unfamiliar songs included on these 8 cds. Not sure where they were "hits" because I never heard them before. Maybe they were top 40 in places like the middle east or europe in the 80s - I don't know. I didn't like most of them. I think after reviewing all the disks I liked perhaps 15 songs in the entire collection. There is nothing wrong with the disks or the music. The Quality is good. Just be sure that you review the song list before purchasing.
