Reception[edit]

Amazon.com editorial reviewer described the album, "four decades of hits, four decades of touring and the legendary Australian are still making great music."[6] Alasdair McDonald of The Sydney Morning Herald reviewed both the studio album and its live album companion, 40 Years of Rock - Vol 2: 40 Greatest Live Hits and rated them as four out of five stars, he felt that they are "a homage to one of the most-loved and influential bands to come out of Adelaide; the band's influence spread far and wide, from Guns N' Roses to Pearl Jam and Nirvana, and their music helped spawn the Seattle grunge movement from half-way around the world."[7] Peter Hackney of Altmedia opined that "this compilation shows why they’re the quintessential Aussie pub rock band."[8]
