AllMusic Review by

The 2015 release Icon: The Greatest Hits rebrands the 2012 compilation The Greatest Hits as part of Universal's ongoing Icon series. The 2012 set The Greatest Hits -- the first-ever compilation of the new millennial modern rock band 3 Doors Down -- does indeed serve up most of the group's biggest hits, beginning with their 2000 breakthrough "Kryptonite" and wrapping up with two 2015 recordings, one called "Goodbyes," whose title lends this set a slight sense of finality. Not all of the band's charting singles are here -- notably "Citizen Soldier," which served as a soundtrack to a military recruitment ad in the waning days of the George W Bush administration, is absent -- but the ones that count are: "It's Not My Time," "Let Me Go," "Away from the Sun," "Here Without You," "Be Like That," "When I'm Gone," and "Duck and Run," all adding up to a thorough overview of this enduring post-alt rock band.
