AllMusic Review by

Universal's budget-line compilation Icon rounds up 11 of Pat Benatar's biggest hits from the '80s. Eleven tracks don't amount to much, but there are some charting Billboard singles that are missing; songs most casual fans won't remember: ("Le Bel Age (The Best Years)," "All Fired Up," "Ooh Ooh Song," "Looking for a Stranger," "The Victim," "Promises in the Dark"). And that means that all the songs a casual fan does know are here: "Love Is a Battlefield,' "Hit Me with Your Best Shot," "We Belong," "Heartbreaker," "Shadows of the Night," "Hell Is for Children," and "Invincible." And that means Icon will satisfy most listeners in need of a tight, satisfying collection of Benatar hits.
