    It's an artful & well-crafted collection. [No. 98, p.60]

    This compilation, of tracks from 2003-2013, captures what’s utterly brilliant about the A&C roster by mixing the hits with rarer tracks, giving perhaps the definitive overview of the Canadian music scene of the past ten years.

    It may be lacking some of its biggest songs, but it comes across as a homemade love letter to itself that fans of the various groups represented on it will find something to easily adore.

    There’s some inevitable long-album malaise in this contingent (particularly prominent on the second disc of rarities).... What redeems is that none of these signings reek of opportunism.

    The style of music ranges from heady precision punk to rustic acoustic folk, but because the artists on board share in the same optimistic indie spirit, the compilation plays cohesively from start to finish.
