Another Entry Into a Great Series

"Yet again Priority Records finds enough good 80's material to fit a (short) CD. Guilty pleasures abound on this disc, including "Puttin' on the Ritz" (cold and cheesy), "I Wanna Be a Cowboy" (which I suppose was funny once) and Pseudo Echo's remake of "Funkytown". Highlights include Talk Talk's "It's My Life" and the dual instrumentals "Peter Gunn" and "Axel F". As usual, there's a few duds - "Cross My Heart" is an uninteresting (but harmless) dance number, and "Where Are You Now?" is a horrible pop ballad which reminds me of Bad English's "When I See You Smile", and no, not in a good way. Not a bad set, but you might want to try somewhere else first."
