Gold: Soft Rock Review
Gold: Soft Rock

The latest collection from the Hip-O's "Gold" series collected 30 of most beloved singles from the British artist in the eighties era. The majority of the tracks here are new wave and pop/rock musics, which were the outstanding gene of 80s musics.

Here you have almost all of the essential new wave artists including The Buggles's "Video Killed the Radio Star", Soft Cell's "Tainted Love", Dexy's Midnight Runners' "Come On Eileen", Big Country's "In a Big Country", the Fixx's "One Thing Lead to Another". Some of the big pop acts were presented such as Visage's "Fade to Grey", Dead of Alive's "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)", Level 42's "Something About Me", and Simply Red's "Holding Back the Years". It might be better if there were the Cure's"Love Song" instead of "Let's Go to Bed", and Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" instead of "Mad House".

However, the album was short in many terms, both style and quantity. There was no metal songs, although 80s was an era of metal. And 2-CD certainly was not big enough to be called "definitive collection". Anyone who want more new wave stuffs should go for Rhino's 'Just Can't Get Enough' series, or 'Radio Daze' series for pop music.

Nevertheless, for anyone who want the cream of the new wave and pop acts from the eighties era would find this album very enjoyable.
