Many say that the 1980s was one of the best decades for pop music, and if this collection put together by NOW is anything to go by, they're definitely right.

Queen & David Bowie, The Jam, Madness, Spandau Ballet and The Human League are just some of those you should expect to hear if you pick up a copy, with some of their most memorable hits available.

Though there are a couple of odd choices for the record which might have been replaced by something a little more exciting (Shakin' Stevens' 'Green Door' and Tight Fit's 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' for instance), on the whole this is an extremely pleasing record.

With so many legends of the industry available, there truly is something for each individual style on this record. A perfect gift for anybody just in time for Christmas.
