Compilation of 80's electronically inspired music. From the sheer majestic pleasure of 'Vienna' by Ultravox to Blondie's first foray into crossover rap 'Rapture', to lesser known but much loved tracks such as 'First Picture of You' from Lotus Eaters, to Paul Hardcastle's groundbreaking and still disturbing '19', it is hard to fault.
The album charts the birth of synthesized pop music in the 1980s and ultimately the roots of contemporary electronic dance music. During this period the synthesized music producers such as Kraftwerk, The Human League, Heaven 17, The B.E.F., OMD, Talk Talk, Japan, Sparks, Gary Numan, and New Order pushed the boundaries in experimenting with (mainly) the Roland synthesizer and ultimately showed the way for the house and techno producers of the 90s to the present day.
