AllMusic Review by

Best of Mellow Rock is a budget-priced, ten-track collection of popular soft rock hits and ballads from the early '80s. Although the collection is quite uneven -- Glass Tiger's "Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)" and Sheriff's "When I'm with You" sound particularly dated -- it's rather entertaining, featuring such highlights as the Little River Band's "Lonesome Loser," the Motels' "Only the Lonely" and John Waite's superb, timeless "Missing You."
