    This LP's strength is as a document of change rather than a retrospective.

    Unreservedly recommended, but for the uninitiated and obsessives only. [Nov 2013, p.86]

    If there's a criticism here it's in the way these songs don't stray far from the original pieces, instead working as tasteful updates that add a dab of cohesion that was never needed in the first place. It's a treat for fans, which is really all a project like this is ever going to be. But it also highlights a continuity in their work.

    Across Six Leap Years serves the weirdest of purposes, pleasing (presumably) both band and fans. Many of these reworks are so slightly different as to possibly only truly satisfy the former, but no matter.

    Across Six Leap Years reminds us that after more than 20 years, Tindersticks remain as polarizing as ever. And for that, it does its job admirably.

    None of these versions are really necessary, at least for listeners (it sounds as if making the record was both important and cathartic for the band), and while it’s as good a place for newcomers to start as any and superfans will probably enjoy teasing out the small differences, it’s the least essential thing Tindersticks have ever released.

    Other versions are so microscopically different from the originals that you wonder why they've bothered. [Dec 2013, p.71]
