CD Reviews

How do you build an 80s compilation?

"Like the other four entries in the Living in Oblivion series, this disc is pretty hit and miss. There are some great, now-lost tracks here, ones that I'm happy to have on disc again (Mickey, Get It On, Lay Your Hands On Me, 88 Lines ..., some others). And then there are songs that I never heard in the 80s(and by around 1981 I was listening to a LOT of radio), and I don't think I was missing much.If I had my way, I'd try to condense the 5 CDs into 3 -- there are enough gems to fill three CDs easily, and about 2 CDs worth of songs that I would just as soon see slip back into oblivion."
Mickey in Spanish!

"Never has a song touched me so deeply... Oh, Mickey, you're so fine and, yes, indeed, you blow my mind!"
Half awesome!

"The truth is, with 80's collections, the more songs it has that you want, the better it is. This "Living In Oblivion" series is no different. I find "Volume 5" to be the best, others may not. Like most of them though, I really love half of what's here, the rest is still ok. My favorites are the excellent "Get It On (bang a gong)", "Lay Your Hands On Me", "Heart And Soul", and "The Jam Was Moving". Others I'd call classic are "Running Up That Hill", "Destination Unknown", and the infamous "Never Ending Story". If you can find this for a few bucks, it's well worth the trip down memory lane."
