Album Review

Universal’s 2011 Icon compilation relies heavily on Steve Winwood’s 1986 comeback, Back in the High Life, containing six of the album’s eight tracks including “Higher Love,” “The Finer Things,” “Freedom Overspill,” and “Wake Me Up on Judgment Day.” The remaining five songs consist of singles from albums prior to that 1986 masterwork, including “Valerie” and “Talking Back to the Night,” and although the absence of any single from 1988’s Roll with It is curious indeed, there’s not a bad song here.
