AllMusic Review by Gregory Heaney

Over the course of its three discs and 60 songs, EMI compilation Massive Hits! Alternative makes good on the promise of its name, offering up a sprawling collection of pop hits from the last couple of decades. Featuring songs from alt-pop stalwarts like Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem, the Dandy Warhols, Hot Chip, Fountains of Wayne, and a host of others, this collection puts a wealth of singles at the listener's fingertips, and should have something to satisfy most any music fan.
