AllMusic Review by

The U.K. wing of EMI continues its double-disc Twogether series with Twogether Rock, which once again plunders the distributor's own vaults to piece together a random, albeit genre-specific, set. It's heavy on material from the '70s and '80s: Billy Idol leads off both discs ("Flesh for Fantasy" and "Rebel Yell," respectively), with the likes of Pat Benatar ("Fire and Ice," "Heartbreaker") and the Scorpions ("No One Like You," "Can't Live Without You") also contributing two selections. It's far too random to appeal to many -- how many other compilers would think to place Barclay James Harvest ("Rock and Roll Woman") and Marillion ("Lavender") on the same disc as Poison ("Your Mama Don't Dance") and Vixen ("Edge of a Broken Heart")?
