CD Reviews

Great music that hopefully will make its way back
Retroman | Toronto, Canada. | 04/07/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD series is super. If you really want to understand New Wave or simply love it, you can't get much better than this series or the Classic Alternatives Series offered by SPG.
So if you're like me, a New Romantic who cannot accept the past as dead, you'll cherish all of these tunes. Max Headroom couldn't be happier."
Great Entry in a Great Series
Arnaud de Bonald | 02/14/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All five entries in this series are compilations of songs that were popular on alternative radio and in clubs in Toronto in the 1980s. We liked to believe then that Toronto embodied the best elements of the NY and London new wave scenes --- and that we were generally so hip that it hurt --- but, in retrospect, I'll only note that many UK acts were using Toronto as their North American beachhead. (One summer I worked in a restaurant and had the opportunity to offer Flock of Seagulls coffee, though only their management ordered any.)My affection for all of this music runs deep, but probably principally for personal reasons evoked by Boys Brigade (local heroes) in Melody: "There was a time, and there was a place, and there are memories. And there was a girl, such a beautiful girl. ..."The music's good too, of course. Go ahead, buy it. At this price, how can you go wrong?"
Excellent !

"Generally, I don't like compilations because you always get the same well-known tracks. But this "Hardest Hits" sery is excellent and the vol. 5 is , in my opinion, the best one. I didn't know most of the tracks and I actually like them all very much now. Great if you are a 80's music fanatic & want to hear something new from radio playlists."
