AllMusic Review by James Christopher Monger

A succinct, budget-priced overview of the gospel singer's all too brief career (he was killed along with 11 others in a small plane crash in 1982), Sparrow Records' Icon collects ten of Keith Green's most beloved recordings, all of which are culled from his four studio albums released between 1977 and 1982. While it serves as an excellent introduction to the singer/songwriter's inspirational blend of faith-based rock, folk, and pop, listeners looking for something a tad more substantial would be better off with 2009's 19-track Greatest Hits collection or Sparrow's two-disc Ministry Years compilation.
