My Advice: Don’t Bother.

Okay, you’ll forgive me for this being a short review, but seriously: there are only five music videos on this disc and no extra features. I checked and I found all these videos freely available on YouTube. So, if you want to relive the days when (all together now) MTV used to play music videos, I’d just hit YouTube or some similar service. The only special feature is that the music is in PCM, a higher bandwidth digital audio format. Or something. So unless you are a serious audiophile and need to hear The Buggles’ “Video Killed the Radio Star” in all its full richness, I wouldn’t bother.
