Ultimate New Wave Party 1998

Ultimate Dance Party 1998 is an entertaining, continuous-mix party album that features such new wave classics as the Romantics' "What I Like About You," Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself," Modern English's "I Melt With You," Soft Cell's "Tainted Love," Blondie's "Heart of Glass," the Cars' "Just What I Needed," David Bowie's "Let's Dance," ABC's "The Look of Love," the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams," A Flock Of Seagulls' "I Ran (So Far Away)," Duran Duran's "Hungry Like The Wolf," Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me With Science," Haircut 100's "Love Plus One" and Madness's "Our House." If you're looking for reference copies of any of these songs, this isn't the disc for you -- all the songs are segued together in order to replicate the feeling of a dance club -- but if you a want a party album with a consistent, thumping new wave beat, this will do nicely. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
