AllMusic Review by

World of Rock is a muddled 26-track collection that mainly consists of forgotten metal and hard-rock bands (Bubbles in Bleach, Scaramouche, Jet Black Joe, Dead Bang), but throws some '80s alternative bands (An Emotional Fish) and '70s pop (10cc), as well as familiar metalheads (Lita Ford, Motorhead). Although it's interesting to hear some of the forgotten bands, since they sound like artifacts these days, the end result is a collection that's rather tedious and frustrating, and most fans simply won't want or need to hear over 20 of the tracks on this collection.
