  • Summary: The Canadian collective (who wowed critics with 2003's 'You Forgot It In People') offers a compilation of B-sides and previously unreleased tracks.

  1. 83
    All texture and no text. [May 2004, p.108]
  2. An intriguing and mesmerizing compilation of songs that underscores any love you already had for Broken Social Scene.
  3. Captures different shades and moods of the band's thus-far five-year career quite nicely.
  4. If you've ever seen Broken Social Scene live, you'll know that nearly all the members spend an inordinate amount of time onstage crouched over their effects pedals, creating waves of guitar drones and feedback, and this album sounds like an extension of that style. Yeah, it can get tiresome, but more often than not, it's actually quite beautiful.
  5. It has enough winners to make it something to hunt down if you like the group.
  6. 60
    While not up to par with either of their previous albums, Bee Hives is certainly a pretty, if uneven, addition for fans. [Jul/Aug 2004, p.124]
  7. Generally, the tracks here are pleasant and well-produced, but are rarely engaging enough to justify their runtimes.
