AllMusic Review by

This 11-track collection from Hip-O plays an old K-Tel mix from the '80s. Icons of Rock is a pretty bold title, but most of the artists included (Free, Peter Frampton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rod Stewart, Rush, Thin Lizzy) fit the profile. That said, Night Ranger must have an in with someone close to the project, as their mid-80's power ballad "Sister Christian" despite having the kind of chorus that can lure professional bowlers out of the alley and into the adjoining karaoke bar, seems a little out of place here.
