AllMusic Review by

Universal’s 2010 collection Icon is a terrific 12-song sampler of Rod Stewart’s classic first five solo albums, anchored by such staples as “Maggie May,” “Handbags and Gladrags,” “(I Know) I’m Losing You,” “Mandolin Wind,” “You Wear It Well,” “Every Picture Tells a Story,” and “Gasoline Alley,” but also finding room for his covers of “It’s All Over Now,” “Angel,” “I’d Rather Go Blind,” and “Twistin’ the Night Away.” It all adds up to a thoroughly entertaining overview of Rod at his peak.
