AllMusic Review by

The triple-disc, budget-priced Epic box collects 60 indie/alternative rock hits culled from the late '80s through the first decade of the 21st century. The song picks are pretty intuitive, and the U.K.-festival-heavy playlist is accessible enough to garner interest from across the pond. Recent hits like “Dominoes” (Big Pink), “Uprising” (Muse), and “The High Road” (Broken Bells) are effectively shadowed by “epic” '80s/'90s rockers like “Fools Gold” (Stone Roses), “Sit Down” (James), and “True Faith” (New Order), resulting in one of the better flowing, budget road trip comps to come out in some time.
