CD Reviews

Living Oblivious
Dukman | Just this side of madness | 09/20/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"There are some tracks on this disk that (thankfully) I had never heard of. However, there are a few songs here that are very difficult to find.

Belly of the Whale - Burning Sensations. In fact it was for this one song that I bought the CD.

Get out of London - Intaferon. As previously mentioned this is a hard song to locate.

Also, WangChung, Tones on Tail and the Thompson Twins add to the value of this disc (for me at least.)"
Best of the series

(5 out of 5 stars)

"How wrong are some reviewers. This is one of the cds of the series I enjoyed the most. There are some real gems in this cd that now are unfortunately really living in oblivion. Take for instance Sister of Mercy by Thompson Twins or the wonderful (tough some how cheesy) You don't know by Scarlett and Black and the sophisticated new romantic sound of Digging your scene by The Blow Monkeys.
If you like the sophisticated and mannered sound that were common in some big name groups of the 80s give a try to these lesser known but excellent groups: The Blow Monkeys or Thompson Twins. You wont be dissapointed.
Anyway, this compilation really surprised me. I didn't expect to hear that many really goods songs but I did. I didn't care for two or three songs all the other ones are really great."
Enjoyable Pop Songs

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Beyond the obvious hits there are some quite catchy numbers that most people (like some reviewers) will completely ignore. Go! by Tones on Tail is a radio classic, and You Don't Know by Scarlett & Black is a delight. A must-have for those open to hearing things they haven't heard a million times before."
