"I am an 80's music junkie who has collected many anthologies and compilations from this decade. SEDADED 2 has risen to the top of the pile as one of my most listened to CDs. In fact, it rarely leaves its spot on my player. The songs do not become tiresome or tedious; and they tend to be tracks that are not usually played on the 80's flashback radio shows or stations. In fact, the CD features a lot of hard to find tracks that are not included in most 80's compilations, such as "Pale Shelter" by Tears for Fears (instead of the more typical "Shout" and "Everybody Wants to Rule the World) and "Los Angeles" by X. This compilation has a nice edge to it. The songs have something to say, they are well written, extremely well sung and all will move you in some way. Starting with Billy Idol's driving beat and rebel attidude of "White Wedding", to the Red Hot Chili Peppers' sing/shout-along chorus of "Fight like a Brave", followed by the sensual "Lips like Sugar" of Echo and the Bunnymen with a nice segue into the Psych. Furs raspy "Heartbreak Beat", etc. Not many CD's can pull off playing the painful end of a relationship "Kiss Off" (Violent Femmes) AND English Beat's "I Confess" of new love. The CD also includes Patti Smith, the Ramones, David Bowie, the Kinks, Wall of Voodo, English Beat and Stone Roses. (Wow!) Really, this is the coolest compilation of rebel-sexy-moody anguish-with-a-beat you'll ever find!"

"Calling the Patti Smith Group's "Because the Night" the best single of the 80s is a little like saying "We Built This City" is the best single of the 90s or "Yesterday" is the best signle of the 70s. It came out in '75. Still, it IS awesome, and there are a few other selections here that are neccessary 80s tunes. Romeo Void, Furs, Bunnymen. And props for including the Suburbs "Love is the Law": A true New Wave classic. If you approach the 80s from a college radio (and not an MTV) type place, the Sedated series might just be for you. They're all out of print too, so get 'em while they're cheap!"
