AllMusic Review by

Hot on the heels of Doubleshot: Alt Rock comes K-Tel's Doubleshot: Modern Rock, another double-disc collection of alternative and college rock hits of the '80s and '90s. Echo & the Bunnymen's "Killing Moon," Throwing Muses' "Dizzy," the Smiths' "How Soon Is Now," and Jane's Addiction's "Jane Says" are among the classics included on the album, and Ministry's "Stigmata," Everything but the Girl's "Frost & Fire," and Lets Active's "Every Word Means No" add diversity to the set. Tracks from X, New Order, Primal Scream, INXS, Dream Academy, and others round out this fun, if somewhat lengthy, compilation of alternative rock's early years.
