AllMusic Review by

Time-Life Music's Guitar Rock: Heavy Favorites features 12 rock radio staples, including "More than a Feeling" by Boston, "Hold Your Head Up" by Argent, "Slow Ride" by Foghat, "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain, "Cat Scratch Fever" by Ted Nugent, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult and "Black Magic Woman" by Santana. Some of the songs, such as "Take It on the Run" by REO Speedwagon and "Hold the Line" by Toto, however, aren't exactly hard rock. These songs are available on other compilations, but this disc offers a decent collection for the casual fan.
