    Brought this cassette album for a mere 25 pence from my local YMCA charity shop, and was hugely impressed with it. For a compilation it has some really good tracks on it, definitely compared to the likes of the compilations nowadays. Not knowing much rock from the eighties, this is a great place to start. It covers all the big essentials from the decade, such as Spandau Ballet's True and Cutting Crew's (I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight.

    One problem with this album, is that i wouldn't call it Soft Metal, its more Pop Rock than anything.

    Also the background cover art is so late eighties.

    Another point to be made before i go, is that this album is also available on LP and CD, although i don't think they are remastered.
