"Music videos are short little dramatic pieces. You would think that consumers would be at least worthy of 45 minutes to an hour of videos from the 80's. Call me harsh but I consider this DVD a waste of time. I bought it because I love most everything 80's but it's so short once I get into it it's time to go back to the main menu or put in something new. I really, really would love to own a 2-3 compilation of 80's videos. This is it. I would say this one is for a fan of one of the artists included who wants to have their favorite video on DVD. The Bananrama video for Venus is a fun video with the girls dancing around. Brass In Pocket is classic--Chrissy Hynde as a singing waitress. I mean it's an okay assorment but very brief and bare bones..."

"I don't know what's up with Rhino. They released a handful of these "Essential Music Video" titles but each disc contains only five or six videos, total running time around 20-25 minutes. It's nice that each disc is priced (somewhat) accordingly, but it is just such a waste of physical resources (all that plastic) and space for the consumer. It would have made more sense for them to have at least put 10 videos (if not double that) on each disc and then charge twice as much.As to the videos on this particular disc itself, there are some good ones. I think that Bananaram's "Venus" nearly qualifies as a camp classic from the era. Simply Red's "Holding Back The Years" still shines. Even though I'm a big Howard Jones fan, I wish they would have chosen one of his other videos for inclusion here.Sound and picture quality is okay, but it's stereo only (no multichannel remix here)."
WHAT A RIP!!!! ONLY FOR TRUE FANS :(

"If it wasn't because I was desperately looking for Bananarama's "Venus" and Julian Lennon's "Too Late For Goodbyes" videos, I would have not purchased this DVD, even though it is very cheap. I agree with all the reviewers, these is a very short compilation and I still believe they could have included at least 30 videos here for the same price. Venus, Too Late For Goodbyes, Chains of Love and Holding Back The Years are my favorite videos here and that is the only reason I bought this tiny compilation. It was more than a fortunate situation that 4 of my favorite songs from the 80's were included here. If you're a die hard fan of these videos then buy it, but personally I think is not worth it. 10 stars for the artists and their videos, "0" stars for the compilation
