AllMusic Review by

Universal’s 2010 collection Icon 2 doubles the length of its cousin Icon, adding another 12 tracks and another disc to the 12-track original. The sequencing is roughly the same for the first disc, but after “Maybe Tomorrow,” “Sugar Daddy” is added to the mix, and the disc digs deeper on solo cuts from both Michael (“Rockin’ Robin,” “With a Child’s Heart,” “Just a Little Bit of You,” “One Day In Your Life”) and Jermaine ( “That’s How Love Goes,” “Daddy’s Home”), along with a handful of other Jackson 5 singles. This isn’t quite as comprehensive a portrait as Universal’s previous Anthology, but it’s entertaining and well-sequenced, a good alternative for anybody considering the single-disc Icon but wants more music.
