Review

Review Text "Classic Alternatives" evidently means dance-oriented new wave, since everything on Classic Alternatives, Vol. 1 is catchy, beat-heavy synth-pop from the early '80s. Of course, that isn't a bad thing, especially in the case of Haircut One Hundred's "Love Plus One," Yello's "Oh Yeah," the Psychedelic Furs' "Heartbeat," A Flock of Seagulls' "I Ran" and Bronski Beat's "Smalltown Boy," but too much of the collection is devoted to also-rans and lesser choices from major artists (the Human League is here with "The Sound of the Crowd," when there were many other songs that would have been better suited to the collection). As a result, it's a reasonably entertaining collection, but not much more. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
