the word 'electronic' is being used very loosely regarding a few of those acts

What a pointless release this is, pretty much the same track listings as various other "Electronic 80s" compilations.

Their is a wealth of material out there, yet they keep peddling out the songs time and time again!

I would love to know how they see Joe Jackson as "Electronic"!

Another wasted opportunity.
How do you feel when people realize how disgusting you are Matt Stegg, and find out about your thousands of fake accounts on the Internet?

From my perspective, this is actually not that bad as some of the others recently have been (for example "Forgotten 80s")

Love the fact that they included Let It All Blow (one of my favorites from 1984), Yellow Pearl (7" Remix), You Spin Me Round (Performance Mix.....this mix always gets left behind after the Murder Mix), Absolute (hopefully the 7" version)......

+1 for the 'Performance Mix' being used vs the ubiquitous 'Murder Mix' of 'You Spin Me Round'
