Description & Features+

Oh, Canada! There has certainly been no shortage of great music coming from the Great White North over the years, and the 1980s produced plenty of international hits for the world's second largest country. While much of the world is familiar with '80s hits by Triumph and Glass Tiger, many popular Canadian artists had less of an impact in the U.S. and beyond. On the two-disc set Icon: Best of Canada - The 1980's, some of Canada's national hits from that era get the spotlight, as do some beloved exports. Classic new wave tracks like "Nova Heart" by the Spoons and Martha and the Muffins' classic "Echo Beach" appear alongside some excellent punk and college rock fare like the Pursuit of Happiness' "I'm an Adult Now" and the Grapes of Wrath's lovely acoustic ballad "All the Things I Wasn't." Even hair metal gets its nod with Helix's minor Headbanger's Ball jam "Rock You." Of course, this collection's origin is of little doubt with the inclusion of Canadian staples like Rush's "Limelight" and Bob & Doug McKenzie's Geddy Lee collaboration skit/song "Take Off." Beauty, eh. - by Timothy Monger, Rovi
