AllMusic Review by

Downtown Train is a 12-track distillation of Rod Stewart's four-disc box set, but instead of containing early hits, it concentrates on '80s singles like "Passion," "Young Turks," "Infatuation," "People Get Ready," and "Forever Young," adding a few '70s songs ("Stay with Me," "Tonight's the Night," "Killing of Georgie," "I Don't Want to Talk About It") and the new hit single "Downtown Train" for good measure. Although none of the material on the disc is bad, but the compilation lacks focus or cohesion, making it no more than a good sampler for casual fans.
