Greatest Ever Alternative 80s presents 3CDs of classic music from the decade when it became OK - or even preferable - to be different. From alternative artists like the Sisters Of Mercy, The Cure and Bauhaus to chart-topping art-pop acts like Erasure, Talk Talk and OMD, the music on this album shares a left-of-centre sensibility and an unmistakable 1980s feel, when MTV was king and anything was possible.
