3.0 out of 5 stars Top 40 radio's last "hurrah". July 8, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I consider 1982 to be the last year of real honest to goodness Top 40 radio. Once we began to slink into the middle of the decade, the quality of your average pop single seemed to begin to slip. This is only an opinion but I think if you'll compare 1981 to 1987 you'll see what I mean. Once we got to the point where half the songs played on the radio belonged to the same "superstar" artists over and over and over (Steve Winwood, Lionel Richie, Phil Collins, Whitney Houston) it was just so boring to listen to a top 40 station. The diversity was gone and so was the life that pop music had possessed since the early 1960s. I will admit that I think things started to improve again around 89-90 but since that time, radio station program directors are so strict in their respective formats that you have to keep punching the dial from one station to another to hear any kind of variety. But variety still has its' last gasping breaths on this CD which features some of the more popular singles of 1982. Toto, Alan Parsons, Laura Branigan and Men At Work have the highlights.

3.0 out of 5 stars '82 Revisited July 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is an average collection of songs from '82. "Centerfold" by the J. Geils Band is a classic and is welcome on any album. Songs like "Gloria", "Harden My Heart" & "Eye In The Sky" are nice additions as they are good songs and you'd never want to purchase complete Laura Branigan, Quarterflash or Alan Parsons to get them. "Maneater" is not one of Hall & Oates better efforts and "Up Where We Belong" is still sappy as ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good music February 28, 2013
By Micah
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great gift for someone born in 1982. (Sorry, if you're buying this now, you missed their 30th birthday, but maybe next year.) Fun tunes, brings back the memories of early 80s pop. Now, if you don't want early 80's pop, then it's a terrible purchase and definitely doesn't deserve 5 stars. But for what it is, I'll give it 5.
