AllMusic Review by

I Love Rock & Roll: Hits of the '80s is an excellent mid-line collection that contains 20 hits. Although the packaging is a little skimpy, all of the recordings are the original hit versions, which makes the compilation an excellent choice for casual listeners and the budget-minded. Among the highlights on Hits of the '80s are the Cars' "Magic," Tommy Tutone's "867-5309/Jenny," John Waite's "Missing You," the J. Geils Band's "Freeze-Frame," Huey Lewis & the News' "Heart and Soul," Hall & Oates' "Out to Touch," 'Til Tuesday's "Voices Carry," Dexy's Midnight Runners' "Come On Eileen," Steve Miller Band's "Abracadabra," the Tubes' "She's a Beauty," Crowded House's "Something So Strong," the Motels' "Suddenly Last Summer," Stray Cats' "Rock This Town" and the Smithereens' "A Girl Like You."
