Last year no-one predicted the amount of success Anthems Electronic 80s would achieve. The stunning selection of tracks from the credible side of the 80s combined with a mesmerising neon advert captured the minds of the nation. It was critically acclaimed, commercially a smash and it almost achieved the unthinkable - knocking the NOW album off the Christmas number 1 spot.
One year later, Anthems Electronic 80s 2 is ready to pick up where its predecessor left off. Ministry of Sound has finely crafted 3 CDs of electronic music from the most important bands of the era. The album features 60 epic tracks such as Eurythmics 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)', David Bowie 'Let's Dance' and Frankie Goes To Hollywood 'Relax', as well as pioneering artists like Kraftwerk and The Human League who built the foundations for producers, and therefore the sound, of today.
With an unparalleled selection of tracks the bar has been raised with this ultimate package. While the importance of the music can't be understated, the bottom line is it makes for a brilliant listen. Essential.
