  1. It's a fittingly strong ending for a band that did almost everything right.
  2. For longtime fans, there’s little reason not to buy this. For newcomers, Peel Sessions might not be a logical starting point, but you’ll still walk away understanding why Galaxie 500 are still revered.
  3. The band is in top form, sounding every bit as fresh and relevant in 2005 as they did 15-years prior.
  4. A perfect summation of everything that was great about this band.
  5. An essential addendum to the Galaxie 500 story.
  6. A masterclass in why Galaxie were such a great band. [18 Feb 2006, p.36]
  7. 40
    The trio only really let loose on their sprawling, wailing cover of Jonathan Richman's "Don't Let Your Youth Go To Waste." [Feb 2006, p.86]
