  1. A must-have for any fans of true alternative music and a primer for younger generations to see where their favorite bands got their inspiration.
  2. You don't judge a compilation by its hits alone, and it doesn't take long to find the set's weakness: sequencing.
  3. The astute and eclectic programming makes for a better listen than other attempts that have been made to compile '80s alternative rock.
