"Of the four or so of Rhino's "New Wave Hits" discs that I've bought so far, this one is probably my favorite (vol. 2 is a very close second). The entire series has a wonderful variety of new wave music, and at a good price. Yeah, its got that "da da da" song that's in that damn TV ad. And it covers the 80's nicely (about as well as you could do on a single CD), from slow Ska (Sampson and Delilah), to New Wave Surf (Party Weekend); from pure Wave (Favorite Shirts), to straight rock-punk (Blue Spark). Start with this disc, then buy vol. 2, then vol. 10, then ....And don't forget to check Rhino's "D.I.Y." series for pre-Wave stuff, and "Have A Nice Day" series for 70's cheesey-pop-music."
Should you pay big bucks to complete your collection?

"Uh, no. I found it somewhat nauseating when I found that the only disc that I still needed to have the entire Rhino NWHOT80's collection was an OOP rarity, but my mood elevated when I got a look at the song lineup. Would someone out there actually pay in the area of $50 for the privelege of owning such a below average lineup of songs? A friend recorded this disc from a library copy that he located and I can honestly say that NOTHING on the sought after disc 7 is even close to being worthy of the big asking price. Check your local library and judge for yourself, then treat yourself to the other volumes and call your collection complete."
