"Search for compilations of new wave and you'll come across a lot of CDs with songs that are more pop than new wave. If you're looking for the real gems that you rarely hear on the radio ... the type of music you loved from those 80s movies like "Valley Girl" and all the Molly Ringwald flicks, this box set will not disappoint. I honestly didn't know a lot of these songs when I bought this CD, but after a few listens I realized there wasn't a single song on this three-CD set that I didn't like. There are some unusual picks, but nothing disappointing, and there are some real standouts like "China" by Red Rockers, "Happy Birthday" by Altered Images (remember this one from the Molly Ringwald movie?), "Love & Pride" by King, "Chamber of Hellos" by Wire Train, "Doot Doot" by Freur, and "Video Killed the Radio Star" by Bruce Wooley & the Camera Club, a much better version than the Buggles' more commonly heard version, in my opinion. Don't let the low price of this CD fool you. This is one of those CD sets that's worth more than the price. Listen and enjoy!"

"If you like this style of music (How could YOU not!), This is a real deal ! There are some oddities, but there are also some gems. Gary Myricks stuff IS genius, as is the Psych Furs. Wire Train? Simply stunning! What a creative time in rock history. Listen for blends of reggae, punk, dance, and synth. WOW!!! At about $4-$5 per disc, you just can not go wrong. If this stuff doesn't make you want to move, you better check for a pulse!!!!"
