|Classic. Almost the legend, many radio friendly hits, and all of theme are sorted on this cd.Feel the 80's

|Never heard of this particular compilation before, but the track selection is top notch. Quite a bit more extensive than their easier to find hits packages.

|Personally, I would have liked to have seen "Tomorrow Doesn't Matter Tonight", "Burn" and "Sorry Me, Sorry You" in place of "Set the Night to Music", "Hearts of the World (Will Understand)" and "Don't Lose Any Sleep".

|I agree with Koogles (above). Where is the "Love Among the Cannibals" album on HH? A great CD, becoming rare now, but has some awesome tracks on it and is worthy of a mention... "The Burn" and "Healing Waters" were the best tracks, but as they released "It's Not Enough" I wasn't surprised to see it here.

|It oughta be called "We Built This City ... And It Sure Sounds Shitty: The Very Worst Of." Seventeen tracks off everything that was bad about mid- to late-'80;s AOR, performed by re-reincarnated '60's fossils jumping on every trend they heard about. How I hate this band! Even worse than same-era Heart or REO Speedwagon.

|You are stone deaf then Doghouse. Either that or you do NOT like AOR, as this and the other bands you mention are pretty quintessential bands from that time and bands that sold millions so they must have been doing something very right. However of course they can't please everyone but those were great days for fans of that kind of music. The mid to late 80's was when AOR was at it's peak and at it's BEST and i for one miss those days and the music.

|You're right, I DON'T like AOR that much. To me, it's hard rock's wimpy older brother, and the mid and late '80's were full of once cool '70's bands clinging to life by drenching themselves in keyboards and cheese. It makes me glad Zeppelin and SKynyrd called it quits, or they might've stumbled through the '80's putting out records like Bad Animals or Vertical Smiles, or worse, anything by Starship. To each his own, but I hated Starship in the '80's (and didn't even know what AOR even was at the time), and I hate 'em now. And the whole "they sold millions so they must've done something right" argument is specious. People use record sales whenever they're convenient to the point at hand.
