Customer Review

on October 18, 2011
I was happily surprised at the quality and selection for this box set. I had heard only some of these songs over the years, but listening to the arrangement put together for this collection helped me recognize it as a tremendous time capsule, revealing the origins of New Wave. There's plenty of solid late punk and even a little funk. For me, it's interesting to consider that this was the sound just before the birth of MTV...then things kind of took a left turn and became very synthesized. While there remained a handful of quality acts during the 1980s, many rock roots seemed to suddenly be dismissed.

It's true that even the most devoted music fan can miss some gems over the years. This box set is great opportunity for many to discover a ton of great artists and forgotten songs.

Dig in and enjoy!
